78 cj5 wiper motor

I got a 78 cj5 and shortly after I realized it doesn't have a windshield wiper motor, or switch. The linkage is still there with the wipers attached.

So exactly what all do I need to get to make the wipers work? From what I can tell I just buy the motor and the switch, and the wipers plug into the switch?
Also, how do I get this god awful pad thing off my dash?
Sorry if the question have been answered, I couldn't find anything about the wiper motors when I searched

Best I remember,the cj wiper switches that I bought,didn't have any wires on them and I just had to make my own wiring harness to attach to the wiper motor..Seems like that other switches were available that did have a pigtail on them

Let me know if you are interested in a motor,switch and perhaps the harness connectors ( just splice the wires) As far as the dash pad goes , lower the windshield and look for the mounting tabs and screws. I've got lots of CJ parts left over from the 5 Cj-7's I owned over the years.
