I agree with SteamKing's appraisal.I think 'total perimeter' here means you go entirely around the area which is swept out by the wiper.

Yeah I just went back to it and I missed that word completely lol.I think 'total perimeter' here means you go entirely around the area which is swept out by the wiper.

I was too focused on whats inside
