Super cool.

This reminds me of something I saw in a Lotus mag once (pictures below). I would love to get something like this done one day.

I had this on my Elise. It had a Lotus part number when I bought it at the dealership. It went with my car when I sold it. I have the original still but really shouldve kept this as it is a very cool part and I was always complemented on it.

@Glamrock that looks awesome. @RapidLotus is the man. I bought some brake line clips and turn signal repair clips from him.
Was going to wait till I was done to post this but now seems appropriate. We have a laser etcher at work and I'm making a fancy mount for my resistor relocation project while my front clam is off. This is prototype 2, need to make the paint line cleaner and a few other tweaks. I will post the finished project to the resistor relocation thread when I'm done. Kids are helping with the fab, hence the shout-out.
Bottom line is that laser etchers are awesome!

OMG, so cool! Now I HAVE to get one, LOL. Awesome project, I may have to get one of those plates from you but my resistor pack is hanging in there, so maybe later.

My resistors where fine but I figured if I didn't relocate them with the clam off they would surely fail the week after I put it back together.

Yes, kind of like it will always rain after you detail the car. I would do the same if I had my clam off. The list is long I'm sure.

I just emailed Dino at Gator Motorsport about this part and here was his response:

"Those no longer exist. I know this because we had the last 2 that were available in 2017 lol"

C'est la vie! :sneaky:

I had one of those on my 07 Exige S. Wiped it with India Ink to fill in the engraving with a subtle black.

Had the car at a C & C in Maryland years ago, somebody there posted this walk around of my car. Turn down the music. Filler door @ 40 seconds.

I'm pretty sure I bought that from you many years ago...

Brother Rapid ( @RapidLotus ), you wouldn't believe the amount of compliments I've received on the fuel door since I added your graphic!

Fantastic and glad to hear. LOL, kind of nice side effect of owning a Lotus. BTW, front plate decal on its way! Have a great day and say "Hi" to Mom.
