I cut holes in my Reverie side sills to allow jacking up the car without having to pull the sills. I put Velcro on the jacking points and cut-down (smaller diameter) hockey pucks. The pucks stay in place which makes jacking the car easier. I use the rearward jacking point to jack up one side until I get the jack stands in place.

That's a great idea my current side skirts don't impinge on the jack points. I'll see if it's necessary to bury them deeper like yours.

I should say that we used rivnuts to hold them in place and they were solid

Getting there slpwly. It's a very organic process. Made subtle changes to match aerodynamics
on wind tunnel tested race cars and time attack cars.
Should be able to make a mold for the rear fender shortly.
The oven has been completed ... Might just go with dry carbon for my car. Making a wet carbon fiber set for a fellow enthusiast.

Venting on the front reminds me of the Saleen S7. Looks great.
There was a local business making supercharger kits. I went to a show there and low and behold there were several Saleen S7s. Seems the owner had a race team at one time. Months later the business was shut down and everything was moved into storage. A great looking car that I'd never seen in person before, and all of the sudden there they were.

I really appreciate the effort that you’ve put into this project but I’m not liking the sharp lines and angles on the rear fender. It doesn’t flow well with the original curvy lines of the Elige. But that’s just my opinion.

Yes. It's altered the lines and has a more chiselled appearance with the aim being to improve grip, maximize air flow , improve down force etc Just wait til I get the monstrous wing on it.

How are you proving that design out? CFD analysis, wind tunnel, crossing fingers? I'd love to see your model if using a CFD a package.
