Group Buy Payment:

Please send your PayPal payment to: ReallyLightStuff [ a t ] gmail [ d o t ] com (using the "@" and the ".", of course!)

VERY IMPORTANT: in the notes section of the PayPal payment, place the following note (with YOUR details):

"GROUP BUY: SIDE SILLS. LT Screen Name, CF or CF/glass, Sills + Panels or Sills-Only, gloss or matte"

Also VERY IMPORTANT: check that PayPal has your current and correct shipping address.

Shipping cost will be billed to you WHEN THE ITEM SHIPS TO YOU. I cannot calculate that until the part or parts are boxed up, weighed and addressed so I'm sorry I cannot give estimates.

Tempted to go with a full set of what has been posted so far (these sills and panels, A/C surround, Door panels, Door pulls, Shifter tunnel). Just have to decide is I want to replace the paint matched Canyon Red shifter tunnel, a/c surround and "cup holder" thingy I already spent good $ on. I suppose I could keep those red and just do sills/panels, door panels and door pulls. Kind of cf on the sides, Canyon Red up the middle. Any opinions out there?

Oh, and will there also be offered the "cup holder" thingy for group buy if I decide to go the full cf?

Lastly, if I do go full cf, if anyone with a Canyon Red car is interested in an A/C surround, shift tunnel (with traction control hole) and "cup holder" thingy let me know! :)

The trim panels in CF would look more coordinated
if there were a CF instrument panel binnacle to match. Any prospects for the latter?

I have glossy carbon fiber side sills and recommend them if you want an easier time getting in and out of your car compared to the very frictiony plastic side sills that you can't easily slide your legs across.

To avoid the squeak noise, I always put hockey stick tape on the back side of the interior trims. Just like some Porsche interior trim has came with thin silky tape. ;)

Are the switch panels/blanking panels going to be available, as well? Seems like it would be kinda weird to have plain plastic panels when the two surrounding pieces are CF.

Hopefully the mold will be ready in 25 days time, but have some tech issue need to solve first. :(

I'd like to replace my sills, as I sometimes wear sunblock, which eats away at the coating on the factory sills. However, I've seen carbon fiber sills on an Elise in the area, and they don't seem to stand up to being sat on too well - they were spider-webbed throughout. How durable are these compared to the factory sills?
