A few more angles: it was being driven by the carrier, and being taken to a loading place to get put in a shipping container.

Ugh. Heart wrenching stuff. But good footage of the rear valance.

Big question is, where are you? What élan do you have? I still have the federal moulds and only have one rear valance left (still needs finishing work). I made two variants in the past. When time allows I'll possibly do a small second run. Again, these are only for the federal cars. The UK and I believe most of the ROW cars are slightly different. Surfboardfiller and Chris P (?) have the ROW variants I believe. Hope this helps. PM me if you are in the USA or Canada.

The last valance I have has been spoken for as has my last BOV pipe. I am, however contemplating a small, five unit run of the basic glassfibre variant after my other obligations wrap up late next year. Again, this is not a guarantee. This is contingent on the frame rate of my current obligations wrapping up. I'm just gauging the interest and commitment level for the valance as they are fairly labour intensive and time has become a rate commodity (each one takes me 40 or so hours of labour as I hand lay each one and they are then fans fitted and contoured to the car after the part has cured due to shrinkage). I also know that the OEM lights are near impossible to source and this is a fantastic alternative to both keep the cars on the road and modernize them a bit. Please list names and how sure you are given the timeline. Will also also request that you PM me an alternative means of contact as one of the valance that was sent off from my previous run had only the deposit paid. Valance was sent and the recipient vanished as soon as it was received. Final payment was never forwarded. I make these valance because I care for the marque and our community. I work on an honour system. That said, after the first layer of glass has been laid for the respective valance has been laid, deposits will be required for completion. I have received several PM through the years about the possibility of a second run. This is your chance. Price it $600. You will need a complete set of Elise lights and one lotus nose emblem I will be remaking new license plate lights as well and those will be included in the price. Similar design as my original, new materials.

Sadly, yes. I only developed the valance for the Fed cars.

New to M100 site. Just bought my M100 last week and it was damaged on the trip from Washington state to Illinois, as you can imagine the left rear light cluster. now I am trying to locate pieces parts to replace and or I like the look of the Elise setup. I did own a 2005 Elise and the look of the round set is very nice. Any help for me out there to fix either way.
