For 2008 LHD car. This car has a GT4 cage which may make a difference. Another possibility is to use an existing one as a pattern to make it.
Any leads or suggestions?

Call wirewheels.com Hayes has a 211 with a cage but it it is RHD . If he has a tonneau a maybe it can be flipped over or mirrored to make a pattern.
Or if you are near a boatyard they might know of a canvass place that can make one to fit the car.

I have just been in contact with a guy in the UK who does body panels for all Lotus models ... he may have what you require.
If I recall Lotus sell them at reasonable price ..
PM me if you want contact details .

I have one on my 2-11 and can highly recommend ...

That is somewhat funny to hear as the tonneau on my red 2-11 pictured above is one that Tecnocraft made in carbon fibre. They used my orange car's factory tonneau to make the mold. ;)
