They are.. lotus OEM makes them 2010 and up I believe

madden, what did you use for plastic filler to cover/sand on the plastic pieces?

I have a sparco 300 steering wheel and it has a concave horn button with a special sparco logo over the horn button.. I want to use some filler, then sand it flat over the top so I can affix a black lotus graphic

Would the MY11 side vents fit an 05? I noticed they are for sale on Lotus Garage.

Do a search on the forum. Quite a few folks have tried the 2011 MY vents on older cars.

For gpheck, I LOVE the filler product that Plastifix sells. Check out their site and videos. The stuff is magic. I used it to fill in my vents. Again, modifying the plastic is relatively easy to do, but takes a TON of work. Lots of dremel cutting, filling, sanding.

I cut/ground the slats away and used aluminum rigid body tape behind and then plastifix to fill, then sand and filler/prime/paint.

The plastifix is a powder. You squirt a liquid out of a bottle onto it and it magically transforms into solid plastic. There's a technique to it (have to build up layers), but the stuff is awesome. Lots of motorcycle guys use it to repair fairings. I used it on my Mini Moke plastic steering column shroud. 40 year old part not made anymore and a huge chunk missing. Plastifix'd it and can't tell the difference!

I LOVES me some Plastifix!

-'08 Elise SC (Chrome Orange) (SOLD)

What's next?!?!?

I did a search under several key search terms but to no avail. Do you remember who tried to put 2011 MY vents on their car? Maybe i can search by their user name.
