Does someone know if there is a single part number for the hardware required to mount the top on an '05 Elise? Or do all the fiddly bits need to be ordered separately?

Any rough idea on what they'll cost?

Lastly, was the center "stiffener" used with the '05, or did that come on later cars?

Many thanks,
Bill

Don't know the parts # offhand, but my mid "05 car didn't come with the center stiffener bracket for the hard top.

Don't ask me how I know ;) - but, never fear - an aftermarket manufactured one of these is (finally) in the works.

Single part number? Try about 19, not including the hardtop and attached seals (see below).

I have been slowly piecing together all the bits I need since buying the hardtop on its own. I got the expensive trimpanel and side covers on the forum, storage bag on eBay and went to Lotusgarage.com for the rest.
