Very nice Bane!

Kinda makes me regret shelling out the dough for the Lotus bracket and hardware.

Do you have any measurements for drilling the holes in the hardtop?

The Lotus one flexes and doesn't feel sturdy at all, so this one does not flex?

Count me in. Sick of my squeaky hardtop. Nothing has worked.

Hey guys, Happy New Year!

Sorry this part never made it into production due to high fabrication cost and lack of interest

I could probably replicate it on my own now if someone else locally has a hardtop Elise with a bulging roof. I have a much better tool to use to figure out the angles and amount of material needed.
