    Living in the rainy PNW I keep resisting deleting the rear wiper... But maybe soon. And if I do, I hope to find something even better than what y'all have at the dollar store or my boxes of strange parts I saved. :)

    I wonder if you could get a new rear window without the hole?

    Agreed... That's the main reason I've not yet done it. Of course at freeway speeds the aerodynamics keeps the rear window dry in most cases.

    I've never used my rear wiper and I don't miss it. The back window is always clean and a few raindrops do not disturb.

    Wash the rear window and put Rain-X on it, then any water will just slide off.

    At my windows, the raindrops bead through the wax of the car wash. This happens at low speeds.
    If it is to look good, you have to compromise.
