Lotus Elan

Plus 2 Chrome screen surround and brand new rubber seal

PostPost by: bigvalvehead » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:40 pm

Hi I have the three major parts of the Chrome (actually stainless steel ) windscreen surround as fitted to the plus 2 together with a new windscreen rubber.
The lower part still has protective tape on it and there is also a spare lower section which has a small dent in it.

?250
i would prefer collection from Cardiff but could post but would notr be cheap due to package size.

Hi Dave, you made me some S1 parts I think, hi. I have these already, putting a car back together but unclear how to fit - do you have any info that could help
Cheers

Thanks

This only fits the early Plus 2 S, circa 69-70, not the later bonded screen type which has a different screen aperture.

Where does the rubber seal come from? Is it one of the reproductions available from The Ford Classic & Capri Owners? Thanks.

If the rubber's still in good condition I'll be interested. I'm in Chepstow so not too far away.

If you are after an early +2 seal for the front screen. Kelsport do one that seems partially correct . it is not for the chrome strips described in the rest of the post.and the locking strip is like the rear window (mini type) rather than the wider flat type (eg corsair?). Its supplied as a length no preformed corners. may be useful info if you cant find anything else. the fit to the body looks good.
