Does anyone have an extra deck-lid plug and nut? It plugs the antenna-mount hole in the early 2005 Elise deck lids. Thanks.

How's it going Michael?

Why don't you get one of those Lotus badges and cover the hole with it?

Hope to see you soon.

Hey Dean! Actually, that's exactly what I'm planning. Except, I don't want to tape it down, I'm going to integrate the badge with the plug so that it screws down.

Why aren't you going to RRR in two weeks?

It may not be the same size but I got a shiny metal cap from home depot for the trunk lid key hole when I removed the lock.

I would LOVE to see a picture of what you are asking for. I can't recall the need for a plug on my '05.
Early '05s had a black plastic plug on the engine cover - near the "front" by the rear windows. Earlier versions had an antenna mounted there, but our cars have the antenna installed under the front clam. Since there was no antenna, the plug was used. Later cars - I don't know when they changed - had engine covers then never had the hole in them.

Mine (a very early car) has the plug. I never pay it any attention. :shrug:

Note the plug (black spot) on the rib in the middle of the engine cover:
