I think I am almost done with all the CF parts from HKFEVER :) Maybe just a few more...

Charles - Many THX for all the parts. It took a long time to get all of these together but the end result speaks for itself.

RRT Racing helped me with the install as I could not do these at home. They are great bunch of guys, very helpful and they can do anything.

Here is a link to the latest work. Tons of pictures.

Came out great! Nice pictures. Fitment looks good too. How much modification did you have to do for everything to join up nicely on the interior?

Overall the fittings were very good. I was very impressed. You have to make some minor adjustments but noting massive. The dash needed few screw holes. The main thing was to make sure to have a set of clips for the air bag cover (Option A121U0117F R/B) B121U0117F Qty 4 and cowling retention clips Part # A121U0156S Qty 4.

The rest went smoothly. I am planning to change the horn and that seems to be more of a challenge as I have to take off the front clamshell. The front grill is totally glued. I think Lotus used all the glue that had in stock to put my car together.

Damn sure, no CF parts on or in my car yet. :D

The only CF look alike parts in my car is the custom made oversize silver colour Texalium al coated fiber glass heat shield from RLS. :cool:

But under, yes. From Reverie custom made 5 element diffuser. :cool:

Oh, forgot another 2 Reverie CF seats :cool:

Wow, the car is looking great. Love the CF ground effects... it's got a Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera look to it!

Question, did you use any adhesive to attach the side skirts or just bolts? I bought the same ones and a couple of people have suggested using double sided tape to attach and then bolt on. Any comments?
I just used bolts. I would not use tapes unless you have no one to help you. If anything you can use some thin black weather strips from Home Depot.
