I miss the old wiper blade inserts you put in existing case.
Height of the new blade assemblies is the issue I have rubbing my non stock hood when retracting.
I have a set of both OE & repop arm frames made by Trico. When I had the Harwood hood on the car modern ones didn't fit well under the back edge even after trimming it. On stock hood they don't like to always make their was under on the passenger side.

When I bought my 76 silverado swb the guy I got it from had bought it as a former demo in 77. Among the various things he gave me was over 2 dozen of the 16" trico refills that were still sealed and somehow soft, but had to be 30 years old if a day.

Needless to say they were a nice addition to my stash that I kept around for myself even after the truck and I parted ways back around 2015.
