I left the standard jet for that original look.
First, my condolences for living where it seldom rains,where it’s possible to remove the wiper system completely! I have the luxury of parking my X for 6 months of the year while the tempature dips to a balmy -40 Celsius and then having to wait another mild month for all the salt to be washed away before I drive it!! Lol Is there a need for a small engine tech in your area? How long can a Canadian stay without a green card? You lucky dog!!!Nice job Rob. Maybe go ahead and remove the stock jet for a cleaner look? I remember back in the early days of rally racing we had wipers with washer lines running along the entire blades, spraying water all across them to help remove mud.
This is the only windshield washer I use:

And for once I am not trying to be funny. Having lived my whole life on the beach I learned that the wind (when it rarely blows) carries fine beach sand particles with it. Those particles settle on top of your wiper blades, so when the wipers are activated they act like sandpaper on the glass. To see what I'm talking about, try lifting your wipers away from the glass and see if there is a line of dirt where they rest.
Although I'm currently not living at the beach, I am in a desert with the same problem; sand in the air (and the wind blows constantly here). So I've never used the windshield washers to clean my windows. And the only time I ever turn the wipers on is after it has rained for a while to wash things off first. However it never rains that much in either So Cal nor Las Vegas, so basically I never use my wipers at all.
In fact I've completely removed the washer system from several of my vehicles due to not needing them. So I guess that is the ultimate in "stealthy" washer jets? And on my latest "outlaw" project I will remove the wipers and mechanism as well.
Yep, that's cold in black and white and in colour!-40 Celsius is -40 Fahrenheit for those of use not on the metric system. That's cold in English.
Yep, I did that also! But I still needed to use the screen washers from time to time, so I installed a "thin-bodied" plastic bottle in the RH side headlamp-motor pocket, and which holds enough washer fluid to last quite some time. We still need "screen-wash capability" down here in NZ!Removed the washer bag years ago.
I like the mod. Can you rotate them so they hit about 1/3 way in on each side? To avoid the side drafting they would be better installed inside of where the wiper pivot comes through the cowl, but then the angle will be difficult to get them to clear the arm when in use, I think.Well, these are a bit of a dud. Really good when stationary or driving slowly. Completely useless at highway speeds. The fluid gets blown to the very edges of the windscreen. Oh well, worth a try.
