Cool My new Laser Blue Lotus Trim Shop interior

As many of you know the Lotus Trim Shop appears to be closing. I was fortunate enough to place my order at the end of February and it finally arrived! I had the tear drop door panels, console, and seats done. I'm very happy with how everything turned out. Thanks go out to this forum for bringing it to my attention and to Lotus of Durham for placing my order. Here are pics!

That looks awesome! btw, that's a nifty GPS?/Valentine remove mounting bracket. Is that a custom piece?

Very nice set up. By any chance, could you be able to shot some close shots for the shift knob? It looks cool...

Thanks! Yes it is. I got the idea from MattG. It's basically a piece of aluminum I cut and bent by hand and attaches by the screws underneath the AC control knobs. I wish it was more professionally done like MattG's radar bracket, but it's good enough for me.

Thanks! This was the thread that started the shift knob: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f95/...t-knobs-78811/ if you read it you will see that many people had problems with R & D. He started selling them on eBay and I took a chance: Lotus Elise Exige Esprit Customize Titanium Shift Knob: eBay Motors (item 280485610136 end time May-10-10 13:00:39 PDT)

Very nice!
