Side intake grills

Iím interested in GRPís mesh kit to replace all plastic pieces. Iíve come across these side intake grills that Iím not sure about. Looks like part number C120B4041J and C120B4042j. Does anyone know if these will fit my 06 Elise? Name:  IMG_5126.jpg

Interested in these too. Do you have a link to where you purchased it?

Do a write-up of the install!

I donít have a direct link. I think BRG is the same as lotusgarage or vise versa. They were about 390 shipped. I believe I will have to do some minor retro fitting to make these work with my 06 Elise. Iíll hopefully install these over the weekend and maybe do a write up if thereís anything tricky to it.

Side intake grills

Here is one of them. The coins for mesh size comparison that I sent to Greg at GRP. Iím interested in the mesh kit but would like the rear mesh to cover the bolt holes. He said he will work with me and come up with a new design. Maybe we can set up a group buy for a discount if more people go this route?Name:  IMG_5431.jpg

The install is easy. I used my bench grinder to grind down the bolt that was glued to the plastic. Make sure you have a pitcher of cold water to dip it in every so often so the plastic doesnít heat up to much or deform. Looks to be secure using the two existing bolts. Just slide in from the wheel well and make sure you fit in the little clip. Iím just left doing some paint touch up from the old ones rubbing against the paint. Name:  IMG_5454.jpg
