    Defender Windscreen Wipers

    Has anyone tried fitting 14 inch wipers on the front window of the 110 Defender?

    The 13 inch are a little small in my opinion and it looks like a 14 inch will fit in its place - lots of room.

    My tank is seperate to the main tank - it has a pump and a switch which you switch on to feed the main tank.
