I want to replace all the stock grills on my Elise with mesh. Where is a good place to get good quality mesh?

Depends. Do you want to 'fab' yourself?

If so, 'customcargrills.com' has great stuff. Cheap and quick shipping and already powder coated.

If you want them preformed (around a buck), KMT sells them.

He does front, oil cooler, top of radiator/clam and rear boot lid. You are on your own for the side intakes (or you can get 2010/11s to fit)

I used custom car grilles stuff; it was good.

Did side grilles myself, but it took 2-3 days. Now, I'd buy the new pcs from Lotus.

Yes, many have done the custom side intakes. I did and it's a bitch. You have tu cut the strakes out and do lots of plastic fill/sand/filler/sand/filler/sand. Plastifix is a great product and really helps. A 'Mouse' sander is mandatory. It's a ton of work.

My car is being fixed now (deer incident) and we just ordered the 2010/11 intakes which are exactly that and fit.

Wow thanks! I'll probably end up doing it myself. Seems like the cheapest way. I don't need the side grills. I'm just going to put on CF exige scoops
