Sweeney Todd Windscreen Wipers come in three parts, and are easily fitted to most vehicles.

The standard pylons holding the blades in place are simply replaced by a set of bony arms, which terminate in a pair of skeletal hands. These hands clutch the elongated, open cut-throat razors, which conceal the rubber strips, whose job it is to do the actual wiping of the glass.

The third part of the apparatus is an additional container of screen wiper fluid in the form of fake blood. This can be selected as an alternative to the regular cleaner, at the flick of a knob on the dashboard.

Now when you activate your wipers you can enjoy the effect of a pair of cut- throat razors swishing backwards and forwards, clearing a path through the jets of fake blood squirting up from below the bonnet.

       +. or if you're squeamish, it could squirt shaving cream instead.

       Blood......blood.......   

       That would put the wind up the traffic-queue windscreen cleaners !

       (re: custom car links) I prefer the idea of it fitted to an otherwise very ordinary saloon car, where the contrast is accentuated.
