Lotus Elan

Boot seal

PostPost by: prezoom » Wed Dec 07, 2016 3:46 am

Looking for a source for a new seal around the boot lid. What I would like, is a clip on seal, with a bulb along the top. Any Ideas? The seal I say on RDent's site doesn't quite look right.

I got one from Sue Miller - I think it's a fairly standard/available profile.

I recently replaced mine with a bulb seal from Amazon. Fits very well and creates a solid seal.

$35 USD with some left over
