Hello! Jamie sent me to Spain a pair of rubber pillar seals and they are a perfect fit. I definitely recommend them. I finally got rid of the nasty ones I had that were chewed off and old. It was an easy straight foward intallation. It took me just 1 hour to remove the old ones and fit the new ones. Thanks mate! Let me know if you have the upper window seals :) I will post pictures next week

JaJa indeed!, that looks seriously suave Ed, lovely car. What we need now is some pics of it surrounded by those stunning Rock guitars just to make us even more envious (well those of us dyed in the wool guitar obsessed Rockers anyway :D ).

Hi Jamie N, I have read the various threads on the subject of M100 seals and your valiant efforts to solve our problems with the sub-standard originals, but haven't found an answer to the replacement of the roof header seal (Lotus part no A100V0125H), No 82 on the ELAN 11.01A diagram in the manual. Have you (or anyone else) been able to make one that works?

Like Steve pointed out mate the header seal in the thread above is the option you really want, putting the seal on the on the upper screen ledge with the A pillar seals connected to it all as one, and a smaller rubber seal on the hood where the old sponge was makes for an extremely watertight solution, also far neater than the usual tatty stuff, here is a picture but you can see more in the thread.
I have a small batch of these ready to fit, if you are interested send me a message and I will let you know whats involved fitting. :wink:

Jamies hood seals and sides .

Go buy them while he is still making them .
Or else hang around with wet knees for another year and rotting sills waiting for the sponge versions that cost a fortune on ebay( £650 for last header seal only not sides) and hardly ever come up .

whilst Jamie has stacks of enthusiasm making them now , eventually someone will come along complaining about something and he will give up

( I hope this is not he case but 17 years of LEC has taught me one important thing )

Need it , see it , buy it .
Just saying ...
