Working windscreen wipers.

At first I wanted to make the windscreen wipers working with a bowden cable but I didn't get it to work, so I looked for a toher solution and I choose the crankshaft solution.

The motor is now on the topside of the wheelhouse and I made a crankshaft wheel. Through this the pistonrod sets the motion into a linear movement and with help of a 90 degree bracket the wipers can slide.
