Sorry about leaving this post half-finished, I spent some time modifying my original design to improve fitment and clearances. I'll attach more detailed pictures and drawings of what I ended up using, and for all those that have asked, I'll include a link to a video of the struts in action. It won't let me upload all the pictures in one post so I'll add a second post for the remainder of them. I used coupling nuts (M8 1.25 x 25mm) to act as spacers to achieve clearance on the hinge and exhaust.

I don't want to turn this into a 'Parts for Sale' thread. That being said, I could make the brackets and put together a kit of the parts needed (minus the gas lift struts themselves and the insulation for the left side strut) the kit would cost in the neighborhood of $60.

In addition to supplying the lift struts and insulation for one strut, you'd have to drill a properly placed hole in each of the BOE clam hinge brackets and enlarge an existing hole in the Lotus sub-frame, and possibly modify the factory exhaust insulation if it is still installed.

PM me if you're interested.
