BPF-1 1/8-60.431.531.181.1300000000.02-.18

N/A
Check the box that says "sample" and add to cart, they will send you quantity of 2 for free as a sample.

You're welcome. Plug fits flush in the hole, no glue is necessary, trust me once its popped into place it's not going anywhere, as the website states "stays in place unless deliberately removed", its watertight.

Had my rear wiper deleted over a year now, no regrets, no issues, love the look, also the rear wiper gets in the way when cleaning the car anyway. I keep all my glass clean, clayed and sealed anyway so it doesn't get that filthy, but if my rear window is dirty enough to where I'm having trouble for visibility, it's either:

A) Time to take out an MF rag and clean ALL the windows with glass cleaner

or

B) Time to wash the whole car


z168 go for it and have no regrets. Let me know how you do if you order the free sample!
You the man Ricky! Thanks

To each their own right? His ride his rights.
Plus he can always put it back on.

If it looks clean then hellsyeah! If your not using the wipers anyways, even better.

I did, thanks again for the info Jay

If you are still waiting for the plug, I would recommend you reach out to CAPLUGS (their contact info is on their website).

Like you, I waited a little while (which I felt was unusual). So, I e-mailed and called them which ultimately worked.

I'm not complaining, though, since it was free

Pics will come soon, but I highly recommend this modification.
