    So Detroit Speed told me 3 years ago their wiper motor kit for recessed wipers would be available in the spring....they are very late at delivering. Is there anything else out there?

    Why not use the factory hidden wiper motor set up? I was able to find all the parts for it off eBay for about $125.00 plus the wiper motor from the auto parts store for about $65.00. Not sure exactly what type of system your looking for. Hope this helps.

    ^ compact, smooth operation.

    I have all the parts, just no wiper motor

    I know you're holding out for the recessed version, but I recently bought the other one from them. As you know expensive, buy DSE quality...

    i have their old recessed setup. i'm not really happy and they can't help me with it. I believe it needs a new circuit board and they said that part was made for them and they cannot get them anymore. it did work well when it worked.

    I got a re-manufactured motor for recessed wipers from O'Reilly's. It's a perfect replacement. But is the original size.

    No, mine has always been "non-recessed".
