Never OEM, only aftermarket. The originals were only available for maybe a year, more than 10 years ago. Don't know if anyone else is making them. They weren't the best made items.

They pop up once in a very great while.

Owned, loved, enjoyed, and now gone:
1969 Europa S2 Blue
1970 Europa S2 White
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1984 Turbo Esprit Calypso Red
2005 Elise Starlight Black
2005 Elise Saffron Yellow
2005 Elise Ardent Red
2006 Exige Graphite Grey
2007 Exige Canyon Red

Other:
1970 MGB GT
1970 Datsun 510
1984 Honda CRX Si
1984 Pontiac Fiero
2004 Chrysler Crossfire
2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe

I think he was talking the roof, not the doors. See the following post:
https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f25...-elise-388793/

You may want to talk to user "keinayo" since he bought one from Hays at Wire Wheels in February 2017. He may be able to tell you if he likes it or maybe he is even selling it.

To see all the posts on this subject paste "site:lotustalk.com Gullwing Hardtop" into your browser and do the search.

AH! He wants the roof for the not-so-flexible tall people.

Been awhile since I've heard about the gullwing tops. They were definitely a limited buy many years ago and don't think anyone else makes them currently. As infernolotus mentioned, they do pop up on the F/S thread, although, very rarely. Good luck with your search.
