Isn't RHD the same as LHD but with the park position modified?

That's it. Reverse the parking position on the drive motor, and use RHD wiper arms (same blades).

I'll have to post some pics of what I'm looking at - the <noun name that I don't know> that the wipers attach to were at one point drilled through, so as to keep one of the wipers on with use of a cotter pin (no kidding). I think I'm also missing the long cable thing <another noun name I'm not familiar with> that drives the wipers.

If you're missing the cable and are wondering about the motor, you should grab a motor, cable, and switch from a TR7 and modify that to work for you. It's a stronger motor and has two speeds, pretty much an identical switch and the stock MGA knob will fit the switch perfectly. A REALLY nice upgrade that I'm taking advantage of myself.
