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:

 

This is me! It has been a right ballache!

Hi all

latest update on S2 door seals, I have now received a quote.

As you can imagine, tooling costs and minimum order come at a considerable cost.

However, I would be able to supply the seals as a pair for £150 including postage and packaging (parcel force express 48, should anyone require, signed for or special delivery, then an additional cost).

Postage accounts for approx £15 of the cost, so for anybody close enough to me willing to collect £135 a pair. 

So, effectively each seal comes in at £67.50 which I think is pretty competitive.

I am keen to go ahead with this if I have enough interest from you guys, delivery time from the point of me placing an order is 14-16 weeks, a fairly long time but the company has to do a considerable amount of tooling work.

So, what do you all think?

 

Hi Richard,

Have you got samples yet? I'm happy to share my experience with you. Email me if you like - simonfoxy at hotmail d0t com

Hello, hope everyone is well, I know the industry is slow at the moment but just wondering if there had been any developments at all.

Thanks

As it happens we are expecting another set of samples next week. On past experience we're not getting too excited so we prefer to wait until we have something concrete to announce rather than making false promises. Thanks for your patience!!

Tell me about it! We've already invested a not insignificant sum in the project and I would be good to see some results...finally!
