The way the doors work...they might need some protection near the handle/button. Not sure if that area gets protected or not.

You open the door by putting your fingers into the recess under the door line, and then pushing the chrome button inward to release the door. Rings can touch paint I suppose. I've seen that "e" and crown on Elises too - what's up with that?

>>>Realistically opening the door you don't really touch the paint except perhaps the edge of your thumb when you press the button , underneath has a plastic piece to grasp. Chris<<<

You may be right. But years back I had a VW cabriolet and the body colored paint under the door handles would get scratched and scuffed up on them. There were after market solutions to deal with this issue. Only finger tips / nails could possibly touch the area. On an Elise I wonder if it's a total nonissue or whether it could be an area of concern.

For some VWs they make cups that fit under the door handles, while stongard shields offer door handle pieces in some of their kits.

Engine Cover

Having viewed a early Fed prototype, I wondered how the rain stays off the engine. I saw no deflector or collection tray through the cooling slats. It appears the production model is the same way. It looks like rain would enter the engine bay from all angles. Of course you could consider it as a natural cleansing mechanism. Anyone got any clues on this?

Ardent Red, LSS, Biscuit- That's my car!

Do all Federal cars have the front mud flaps or are they a DIO? Also, it appears there is no "redline" indicator on the tach- can someone comment? Not that I would EVER get near redline... ;)

They all come with the black flaps behind front wheels.

From memory the red shift light (same light as the activated alarm llight) come on I can't remember if it comes on at redline or before, I guess I really need to look at the manual again>
