isolate the power wire for the wiper motor, disconnect the neg battery cable, cut and extend the hot side of the wire into the cabin, run a switch that when activated, allows the current into the wiper motor. There will be 3 prongs on the back of the switch. One for hot, accessory (etc), and ground. Run another wire from the accessory prong of the switch back through the firewall to the other side of the wiper power wire that you cut into. Of course you want to ground the final prong. Now with the flip of a switch you can disable your wipers. It would probably be a good idea to add an inline fuse to the hot side of the switch. Good luck.

Why didn't you use the headlight sprayers and just extend the lines? theres even a seperate reservoir for them too..



Just a thought, I don't know if TIIs were equipped with them but my GXL FC3S had it..
