Stop fiddling with the car and drive it. :D You'll see less of me on the board once I get mine. I know some will rejoice after that statement :D

With us it seems to work like this: Take turns driving ... Fiddle with car ... Post on forum ... Take turns driving ... Fiddle with car ... Post on forum ...

You get the idea. ;) It's become an obsession. And we've got another day off tomorrow to play, too! :D

Thanks for these and the other pictures. Keep it coming!

A coworker said he spotted a yellow Elise on the Reston Parkway a few days ago. Said the driver had a grin on his face from ear to ear. I thought to myself, I've never met that guy, but I think I know him....

Love to see you and your ride sometime (also in Reston).

Hey I did the same thing with a permanent marker...I also put some flat black paint in the yellow portions of the car that are visible at the edge of the carpet near the wall of the trunk up against the motor. That way the imperfect carpet fit looks visually perfect. I also have now placed a self adhesive Lotus green/yellow badge on the alloy oil filler cap visible in some of my earlier PICs. It's a 3D badge intended for use on shift knobs. There are lots of little things like this you can do with little effort if you love the car.

I'll be around tomorrow. And I think next weekend is pretty much free (daytimes).

There's no going incognito in this car! Especially in yellow. ;) A couple at our next door neighbor's this afternoon said they saw a yellow Elise on Wiehle Avenue earlier. That had to have been me as there aren't many yellow Elises around, at this point anyway, and I just happened to be on Wiehle ... I'll have to watch my driving. ;)

We're around tomorrow and next weekend as well (well, I'm around until next Sunday when I have to fly out to Denver and Albuquerque, but Michael is around after that). We'll have to see what we can do about getting together soon. Michael is usually up super early and I'll make sure he sees the latest on this thread tomorrow morning. It's cool that there are so many of us in this area!

Tomorrow afternoon if there's no rain?

To avoid a mob, how about 1pm at Aldrin Elementary School? (Wiehle and Center Harbor.)

That would work for us (or even just coming to the house as we're probably just 1/4 mile from the school). I just sent a PM and we can follow up in the a.m.
