Hi Beta experts

I have a car to build and need to know how does the Interior Windscreen trim fix? Does it go on before the bonded screen is put in? Does the pillar trim have to be in place first?

This is for a beta Spyder S2

Thank you

Eric

Hi Eric

Before I believe. I had to take my screen out after it was fitted at the body guys place because of this mistake.....

Do you not wrap the seal around the screen together with a long piece of  string,   offer the screen to the outside of the body and then pull the string to bring the seal to the inside ?

Hi Ammy

I have a bonded screen with a Stainless insert to fit. No rubber seal. On the inside of the car is a plastic trim with clips that I think from Peter's comment needs to be fitted before the screen is bonded in.

More answers welcome although I think Peter is correct.

Hi Ammy

The reusable rubber seal was used on very late cars from what I know and the screens are slightly smaller to accommodate the seal. Personally I wish they were all that way, but sadly not the case.
