These are no longer available in the known or unknown universe
multiverse binary trinary or other worlds.

The chances of finding any used ones with the black coating intact are practically nil. You can strip the rotting coating with a razor blade, but be careful at the edges since the seals also overlap the edge slightly.

The coating deteriorates fairly rapidly in sunlight - another reason to use a car cover.;)

What I do with these:
  • Remove originals
  • Slice along the top edge and the bottom edge carefully, with a razor, to separate the decaying portion facing out from the part that's attached to the squeegee parts
  • Angle grinder with a wire wheel (and plenty of ventillation) to scrape off the decaying part
  • Polish the bare metal and put back on OR spray w/ black bumper//trim paint from the auto store
Brake cleaner (get the red can) can help with this, but you don't want that to get on your skin, it's nasty stuff

The first part number (72410-S3Y-003) shows availability from multiple Honda parts dealers, at least in this universe. It looks like one of the second part number showed up (in Japan) on eBay recently, so there might be a few more to be found.
