Lee, you can effect a pretty good repair on these parts without needing to replace them. Remove them from the car (marking their 'parked' position with masking tape). Extract the rubber blade from the arm, then give the arms a good sanding down until the affected areas are clear of old paint. Then a couple of coats of primer (wait half an hour or so between coats & give a light rub down with some fine wet & dry again, between coats). Then an aerosol of satin black or glossy black - your preference, and allow it at least an hour to dry. Re-fit the blades, and re-fit to car - all done in a morning. Total cost will be less than 15 all-in. Hope that helps. Paul
