Front wipers rest in upward position after new motor install

The title pretty much sums it up, I installed a new wiper motor after my wipers stopped working. Everything’s working just fine now but the wipers are opposite, they start in the upward position and go down instead of starting from the bottom and going up. So when they go to rest they’re in the upward position. What’s the best/easiest way to fix this?

I found the following in a web search. You need to remove the arm bolted to the motor and reattach it after turning it 180 degrees.

Just a word of caution, remove the wiper arms and replace it with a short piece of masking tape to simulate the arm location. So it doesn’t damage your stuff.
