I did find their site as well using google but it was pretty slow and I couldn't find any listed Lotus product on it. Maybe I was too impatient..

I finally found the latches that I was looking for to use on my rear clam once it is set up with Turbophil's hinges. I will mount them just aft of the doors on the 1/4 panel ledge next to the "C" pillar.
I saw them on the Cadena and the 211. VERY NICE!! Now, to lock or not to lock???

Good call. Hopefully in the next couple of years we can have a domestic kit for sale. If not I might have a shop do mine in a year or two. Once I get settled into a new house.

First you need a ForcedFed/Stasis Alcon big brake kit along with the optional rear rotors/hats(may need to change front wheel size, 17" as well). You then send/take the brakes to Designit Prototype in Rhonert Park, Ca.. They can dis-assemble the hats from the rotors and re-attach(and charge you) them once the CNC Mill work has been completed. You can dis-assemble and re-assemble them yourself if you want to save a few bucks(I did mine myself). They cut rotors like these for a number of Sprint Car teams.

Update ladies and gentlemen. As of this moment, I have updated the original post to this thread and now have included over 25 aftermarket exterior modification examples for your entertainment. The pictures, being much larger may need time to load (photobucket success?) but once done should be a big improvement over the 2007 post. Feel free to bookmark it for reference later!

GoGoGeek: Big fan of the series one accessories, as well as the blacked out rear-tailight portion. The car looks solid, any other plans for it in the future?

Lightning: Ronin's front spoiler was a prototype piece purchased through sector 111 a few years ago (along with the side skirts). Both resemble the kind that LTS Denag in Japan carries. Contact Sector 111 for more information regarding getting one in the states

Coi: Perry posted the information about his brakes in the post above, check it out:
