Old issue...   That black 'mask' is the primer for the BetaSeal sealant. Requires removing the quarter windows, re-finishing the mask, and reinstalling.


Here is an old topic I found from 2004



I found these descriptions in an Elise document (newer materials? from 2001)

  • Glass Cleaner: Betawipe VP 04604 Lotus part no. A082B6150V
  • Primer: Betaprime 5001 Lotus part no. A100B6009V
  • Adhesive: Betaseal 1701 Lotus part no. A082B6281F or Betamate E2400 Lotus part no. A082B8415V

The quarter windows can be removed with dental floss to cut the old sealer.
