I finally got tired of seeing "red" center console, I had Rob get the center console and cupholder custom wrapped in alcantara with grey stitching, and since the console was off I opted to do the shifter reinforcement at the same time.

out with the old


in with the new

Sir Lotus Front Under Clam Protectors Elise/Exige

Great Item and perfect fit! Just user error on my part as I used a wrong substance to hold it in place and wasn't completely secured when I went on the drive and the center piece fell off on the freeway. . I contacted Sir Lotus to purchase a replacement center piece and was offered a replacement free of charge!

centerpiece with the fallen piece (waiting for replacement)


side pieces still intact and secure!

purchased at set of LSS wheels from a forum member!


but fedex lost one of them.

so while waiting for them to find it a fellow member posted a set of ccw lm16's for sale, needless to say I'm now the proud owner of those.



6/22/13 @AutoProFilms Clear Bra
I finally had time to bring the lotus in to fix the peeling of the clear bra on the bumper, decided to just replace the whole thing instead of a cut/stitch job. no pictures since it looks the same as factory.
