Just wonder who sell the 1/4 turn fastener kit for front access panel?
hkfever sorry i had that all wrong.on an elise there is just one screw that holds the access panel on.one for each panel.it threads into a post.so you cant use a 1/4 turn for them.on your exige you can buy a kit for it.there was one in the marketplace here a few weeks back.

I need a clarification. Can I use the 1/4 turn kit on my 2005 Elise? If not don't process my order. I'll await your response. David

What's involved in the instalation of these? The panel to panel should be easy, what about the panel to body under the rockers? Do we have to drill out the existing threads? or is this instal reversable?

Can you enlighten me as to how they're installed?

Thanks

there is also clip nuts for the 6 fasteners under the shear panel.3 each side.you have to unbolt the shear panel near the sides.so you can pull it down enough to slide the old clips out.then install the 1/4 turn clips.look for a full install thread here in a few days.i need to find time this week to get it done.i have a bunch of kits sent out.so i have to follow up with some install directions.the kit is fully reversable too.

:clap:

It's great to hear this mod is available again. It's saved me enormous time and effort over the last two years. And while it is fully reversible... I doubt that anyone has ever reversed it... :D
