Otherwise, painless. Strips were cut AND labeled correctly for the install and the whole thing has not rattled or shifted since I installed it. I really like the clean look it adds to the interior and it matches my black interior perfectly. Even the packaging was quality.

Overall, if the whole Elise would have been made by Lotushii, it wouldn't rattle and work right the first time.


Thanks for your comments, loki007. I am glad that you like the glovebox.

PM Lotushii He makes/sources them.

If brute force doesn't work, you're not using enough.

@LotuShii - Are you still selling the glove box? If so, how do I buy one from you?

Did you make the glove box yourself? If so, where did you buy it from? What is the website? If you made it yourself, would you be willing to make another one and sell it to me? I really want a glove box for the Lotus Elise.

Just wanted to chime in with my 2 cents.
I was looking for the best solution to turn the stock "shelf" below my dashboard into a real glovebox. After searching the whole web I found Lotushiis custom cover and was convinced.
Meanwhile I received it and already installed it - it looks awesome and works fantastically, thanks Lotushii!
The whole construction is of superb quality, the hinges and closing mechanism work flawless and it is super easy to install.
I covered mine with leather to match my custom interior, but as this cover comes precoated black, it would not be necessary to cover it on a stock Elise or Exige interior.
The set included even a separate small part to cover the remaining small area of the stock "shelf" on the opposite side of the steering column.
Will post pictures soon.

I just bought one off of MConte here on the forum. Nice bit of kit and well made!

Question for LotusShii or those who have it? What are the installation instructions? It has the velcro on the reverse and I'm sure I can figure it out (car is in storage so just need to go play with it), but anything specific or lessons learned?

Only downside is my car is an '08 and has that 'softtouch' interior that is really more deep charcoal than black. Trying to find something that will match. Crazy as it sounds, Plastidip looks closest.

Plastidip is the new duct tape!

Finally got around to installing this. It looks really great, need somewhere to put my crap out of sight. I added the OEM Elise Crome lettering. I have a type72d so I gold plated it to match the car. It really does look OEM, nice MODName:  ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1392398263.503619.jpg

Nicely done!

Two things:

- Can you tell me how you mounted it? I bought mine used from another forum member hence no mount instructions. Car is in storage so can't go look at it, but assuming you just velcro it to the aluminum tray opening? Does it slide into the opening at all?

- Where did you get that Elise logo? I might do the same.
