I have a quick question in regards to front clam shell and door hinge cover alignment on a 05 Elise. Is there a set of alignment C clip shims that go into that nearly impossible to get to 10mm cap size bolt right across from the door hinge opposite of the wheel well bolt? Or are those shims only for the windshield A pillar and wheel well to hinge cover to clam bolt? Thanks in advance.

No, there is not a set number. Mine had different on each side. I was able to get it perfectly aligned. I used shims on all 4 of the 10mm bolts in that area by the door hinge. The 2 closer to the front tires required more on my car. I used some fine, long needle nose pliers to insert the shims after the bolts were started, but not tightened.

Just recently helped @paulobnc do a clam off radiator replace. His had 0-1 on the driver side and 4-6 on the passenger side.
