For crying out loud, if i am having this much of a problem finding these and refuse to pay the ridiculous prices being quoted by aftermarket companies, a set is going to my carbon fiber guy. he has worked on porsche parts for me, stay tuned going to be posting shortly what the cost will be.

Surely HKFever is doing these as well and making them available via RLS as far as I know. He is making pretty much most Elise/Exige parts now...

Depending on price i'd be interested if they can be done in dry carbon or matte

Owning a Phantom Black Elise I'm alway's on the lookout for CF access panels, engine manifold, spoilers, splitters, center console, door panels and canards. On the rare occassion they do come available my timing doesn't allow me to snag them in time. And I check daily but don't have time to live on this wonderful group although ideally I would, only taking breaks to drive!

Therefore, like previous post I'm interested depending on price. At this point I'm looking into making myself due to costs which a business can easily justify. On my part this is all simply fun owning/driving my Elise so can't justify retail as this is such a trivial "want" versus so many "needs" speaking for myself only.

A New Hardtop with fittings etc is a little over $3,000
A New Rear Window/Rollbar Shroud, is around $ 1,250
Those are factory Fiberglass Parts.

Whiskey are you still in Athens? That's right around the corner from us.

Just to make your mouth water a bit, I made my first access panel yesterday.

This is not a cover, but a real panel.

I should be able to run full production within a month.

P.S. I'm not a pro photographer...



Weight is less than half as much as the original panel.
