Interesting, my UK market RHD saloon has wipers suited for the LHD market - it is a right pain.

(Looking through the windscreen the spindle is on the left so the sweep doen't cover the top right corner.)

That is the UK RHD specification.

As in the picture and my description, those are LHD sweeps!

That is the UK specification for RHD cars as produced by the factory.

A little bit confused about which model but would the Rimmers part fit 'Wiper Arm Bright Finish Left Crank 7.2mm Bayonet with Push On 14.8mm Spline - 154671" as per their website?

This, to me, looks the same configuration as a normal 2000/2500.

Looks like the 2000 was designed for the export market ;-)

Below is a crude diagram showing the correct wiper sweeps, the unswept 'blind spot' is the red circle.

Looking at that part number you gave, the arm at Rimmers doesn't appear to be the same style as the original Triumph part fitted to our cars. It has a tab underneath where it narrows at the start of the arm near to the jointing rivit. The biggest difference is the cross headed screw in the cap over the spindle.
As another option, I have found my used passenger side (LH) wiper chrome / stainless arms with the left hand crank. They are the correct for the 2000 / 2500. Postage to NZ is £17.50 GBP using Landmark Global, with delivery sometime next week. By UK's Royal Mail, standard delivery would be around £7.50 GBP, or International Tracked / Signed around £12.00 GBP.
If this is of any use to you, please PM me.
