So, it's next week, can we order it yet? Huh, huh, huh? Can we?

My car can be scary quiet...Ford Fusion Hybrid...A technological wonder. Power to spare, high mpg for the environment.

I think we need a poll on how many people have used their head a prop...

Don't all Elise owners use their head?

I saw this yesterday on MW's Elise and it is a very cool design

Simple and light

Holding the lid open with my head is torture…
A really excellent creation!
I can’t wait.

I find that I'm usually holding it with my head when taking things out of the trunk, so this wouldn't really help me. Looks cool though.

Direct bolt-on. No mods or drilling or gluing or cursing required.

Reverting to stock is just as simple.

Shinoo's magic hands can also drop the lid back down with one hand, but it takes a few tries before you can do it consistently.

Ordered mine at 5:49 PM Eastern... can't wait for it to come in, but alas, it is coming ground so I will have to wait. Will post pics from install if someone else doesn't before hand.

I think I am more excited about the fact that it will keep someone from opening the lid too far and contacting the upper roll bar cover.

Thanks Sector 111!

Just ordered mine, hopefully it will be here before next week is out, I'm planning a "work on the Elise" day. I need to install my iPod interface, get some condensation out of a turn signal, change the oil and now pop the lidbone on as well.
