Here is what the US wiper looks like with the euro lens

The only modification it took was to use a legnth of perforated strapping mounted to the attachment points of the light bucket, which allowed the wiper motor to be offset from the euro hole alignment. Cost about $4 for a 4 foot length of strapping. The strap will suffice until I can locate a set of euro motor brackets.

Granted, the wiper doesn't cover the entire lens, but covers the important part.
