I had these for my Elise. Had them for 4.5 years then sold the car. I now have them for my Evora. It saved me MANY times with both cars!!

These are a must!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Great work from SirLotus.

These skid plates are really nice. I hate to see front clams worn through in the areas these protect.

What product would you recommend using to bond a set onto the underside? Any special 3M product or just automotive silicone? I'd be looking at the Evora application.

Just ordered a set, does anyone know how to go about doing this? IS it just tracer holes and some short screws into the bottom of the Evora bumper? Better to use silicone? Anyone?

Don't scrape your nose!
You can use silicone adhesive or caulking. I used regular GE silicone caulk, spreading a thin layer over the whole surface. Mine have been installed securely for 7 years. No holes to drill.

Installed mine today, I let them stick out about just under an inch for just added protection and some front end down force at high speeds, the silicon is still drying.

Will these fit a 2011 elise? These look like a great idea.

I used silicon so if I scrape something the plates take the hit and not damage my car, screws may rip something or caused more damage if the skid plates hit hard the skid plates can easily be replaced unlike the nose of my car.
