Ok nobody fitted Scott Seals! anyone fitted their own screen? I am going to have a go fitting it myself as the fitter given up! the bottom corners are the gappy ones are these filled with Dum Dum rather than sealant? also the top corners Dum Dum? do you apply sealant on the bodywork before fitting and screwing down the clamps? do you stretch the rubber in the corners to cover the gap? how do you get rid of the pucker on the inside on the bottom corners? I gather the origional seals didn't do this!
I recently fitted Scotts screen rubbers to my coupe front and rear. Patience is the primary ingredient required. The rear rubber fitted quite well I thought. The front sceen rubber did tent to pucker on the inside on the lower corners. I found it the rubber fitted better if you ensure that the rubber is pushed as close as possible to the body before fitting clamps , clips and screws. I applied sealant between the body and rubber before fitting screws etc. The end result ended up fairly good except for the top corners of the front screen which will require dum dum or similar,all things considered the end result turned out good I thought.

Fitting a P5 screen whether back or front, coupe or saloon is something I would never attempt. I have seen so many poor efforts in the past that this is one I always leave to someone who has done one before. If the rubber is not fitted properly or the clips are wrongly positioned then the trim will not fit or stay put and usually ends up bent
