I ordered this part from lotusgarage.com and what showed up was definitely not stock. I won't get into the details, but I did not get what I needed from them. See the attached image, item #10. I only need the drivers side piece in black. I'm crossing all my fingers hoping someone can help me out with this. Thanks!

I wish you luck. Today I was just wondering where to find the same stuff. I am interested in using it to cover some of the sharp fiberglass edges around the engine compartment. I looked at the trim on the diffuser thinking that's what I need, but perhaps just a bit thicker...

It's just door edge trim. Pick it up at Napa or O'reillys... they come in many sizes and lengths.
well ive never heard of O'reillys (i live in NY), but i suppose i could check out Napa. I've never seen something like this at an auto parts store before though (not that ive been looking for it)

Check with your local dealer. That's where I got mine. The one I ordered from lotusgarage was not enough, only 1 meter long. I'll check if I have any left when I get home.

Thanks! I would REALLY appreciate it. I think the closest dealer to where I live is about 5-6 hours away :(

It can be very expensive. I use it with my Challenger Grills. I don't have a whole bunch right now or else I'd sell you some. If I get a couple orders soon, I'll make another bulk purchase and you'll be in business.

i only need a few feet of it. just enough to fit the left side of the diffuser... are you sure you don't want to sell me any? :D

If you can bring them a sample or show them what you need I bet the parts guy can order up the part.

Good luck and let us know how it goes. :up:

You can also split screen spline. It is the stuff that holds a screen into the frame. Available at Lowe's/Home Depot, etc. It is not exactly the same but works.
