Elise S2 door waist seals

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I am currently looking at the possibility of getting a number of Elise s2 door waist seal made up. I have sought a manufacturer that is able to produce but requires considerable investment in tooling and getting first batch in stock. This all came about after trying to source a seal for my S2 111, difficult to find and crazy prices. Also believe the same seals can be used on the Vauxhall vx220.

would anybody out there be interested, will be trying to get them on the market for less than £150 for a pair, not for each one!

Any feedback would be appreciated.

It's been asked and discussed a few times, on here and on SELOC.

The problem is that whoever decides to manufacture these is going to want a *big* order to cover tooling, design etc - there is a thread on here discussing this exact topic, and the company wanted an initial order in the "five figure" range according to the person who was looking at organising. No members on here are going to stump up, and companies like Eliseparts are just happy to resell the expensive Lotus items.

Discussed here, if interested:

You are right, it has been discussed and yes there is considerable investment involved, but if enough people are interested and the market is there I am willing to make the investment. I,m not looking to make a fortune out of it, if the venture pays for the replacement of my seals and a few beers I will be happy.

I am currently waiting for a response from my contact as regards do ability ( its not quite a straightforward moulding), cost per unit and order sizes, and I am expecting a five figure sum. 

I am however hopeful we can get it off the ground.

thanks for you response, all feedback appreciated.
