    My 1984 GMC short bed Sierra 4x4 has all chrome and stainless Steel trim, I’d like to upgrade to stainless wiper arms, I can only find black or grey.. does anyone know where to find them? Maybe arms from another GM model will fit ? Thanks for your Suggestions

    1964-67 Chevelles and Impalas may be a good starting point. They had polished wiper arms and you can still get repo polished blades. I'm not sure about overall length or angles at the blade though.

    OPGI may be to help with the Chevelle measurements and Impala Bob's with the other.

    I have '69 and '70 Impala's, I'll check those in a little bit. Although I think they are different lengths and the angle where the blade attaches is different.

    Be aware that the bright wiper arms can blind you when the sun hits them. That's why they are typically a matte finish, at least since Ralph Nader has had any say so in the matter.

    My '63 Grand Prix has them and it can be nasty. When the sun is at your back you can't see through the windshield because of the reflection of the instrument panel top pad into the glass; when the sun is in front you can't see because of the reflection off the wiper arms.

    My 1978 Silverado came with stainless arms and blade holders.
    They should work on an 84.

    I have the silver color arms on my 82 k5, my 87 pu has the black arms.
    I can't find the silver blade refills locally.
    Any ideas?
    They are 16 inch ones.
