The last four additional ones I obtained from South West Lotus would have been more if they hadn't just sent some out to the States. I've since often wondered if that was Dave Bean replacing the ones I bought off them?? So you could try Dave Bean in the US.

Lotus said they had some more coming in, not long after I was finishing off this Group Buy, so they may now have some.

Finally you could try a ring around of Lotus dealers (I do know that Christopher Neil's keep a reasonable stock of M100 spares)

Just to make sure there isn't some confusion going on here! :?

Dave, do you mean you have one block spare? (i.e. two corners) or one corner spare?

novacaine wrote:unfortunately I need two, both of mine are cracked but still there. I'll try the lotus dealers

Do you mean you need two blocks? (i.e. four corners) or do you need two corners? (i.e. one block!)

Just for clarity one car only needs one block because each block produces two corners.

So if Dave has one block and novacaine needs just two corners for the one car then problem solved methinks!!

Does this help?? :-)

Hi Guys and Girls, lovely Autoglass putting in my new windscreen cracked the new one in trying to adjust it and shock horror was using my old seals !!!!
so I have to wait another week for a new windscreen. I have noticed that the guy hasn't put back one of top corner spacers from my windscreen to the frame, it looks like a black plastic letter L, any idea where I can get these?

Many thanks

Unfortunately they are now obsolete, See the link below. There is a possibility we could start a group buy at so point, as long as there is enough interest

Or make your own!, really not difficult, go round a scrapyard and you will find something that can be adapted and remember it does not have to be from that area on another car, check all over them for something that can be utilised, so much better when you make it yourself :D , cant remember the exact car I got mine from, quite possibly a Honda. :wink:

I have one sat in a box ready to be posted to Superbad.

He has offered to redraw it and make a STL file so as everyone can have them remade on a 3D printer via shapeways or otherwise.

In the meantime...one of my corner pieces is half gone, and on the other side a two inch section of the top windshield rubber is gone where it meets up with the corner piece. So today I filled in the gaps with layers of electrical tape, then a final layer over the top. The satin black tape matches the trim and corner pieces very well. I did this as a quick "proof of concept" but it looks so good I'm going to leave it in place. I used basic tape that was at the house http://m.homedepot.com/p/Commercial-Electric-3-4-in-x-30-ft-Vinyl-Carded-Electric-Tape-30002656/202712355 A Google search shows other tapes that are thicker and wider.

If anyone has an odd single side spare I would be grateful. One of mine is missing!
