Hi, I have a Lotus Elise S2 with a long roof and i want to put on the Exige style engine cover, hardtop and spoiler. Can anyone tell me if this is possible and who can do this?

Many thanks,

Chris

Yes, very doable. i'm pretty sure it is as simple as swapping the Exige clam and other associated bits.

Why would i need to watch out for them? they hard to get? How much on average would a rear clam be? and also to fix it on and paint etc?

Thanks for you advice.

I suspect it will be slightly harder than the first posters think given that you have a Rover engined car (has different rear subframe to the toyota engined cars).

What part of the world are you in - shipping a clam requires a big box!

...you might find it's cheaper to sell your elise and buy an exige than to perform an entire rear clam swap and match...

Thanks alot for your help everyone. After looking into this and talking to a few parts places I think the best bet is to just buy the exige! After all the work it will probably cost as much to do the work to but the car! Might save up a bit and get the supercharged monster!!..

Thanks again everyone!
