Nice work! I used 1/4" nylon spacers on the middle bolts to keep the splitter butted-up against the body.

I was the person who commissioned APR back in '06 to make this splitter for the Elise and they used my Elise as the template for the design. https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f92/...rie-gut-26157/

I like it 'cause it's simple, easy to replace, and not ridiculously expensive.

Yeah.....I seem to remember that.... did you mount it the same way ? It really wasn't hard to do.....just was making sure it was right BEFORE the drilling !

Hi, I just got the APR splitter and am really mystified how you installed it. The gaps between the clam, the front structure and the front aluminum sheet make me wonder how to get it truly mounted securely (track use). Can you enlighten me how to do it correctly? Thanks, David

Alternate Splitter

The APR splitter looks pretty much like the one I make of ABS which I am sure is much more resistant to damage than the CF sheet. Take a look at the Tough Splitter posting and see what you think. Price is better than APR and mounting is easier.

OP explains the installation briefly in this thread. OP hasn't posted on this site in over a year.
