Neil,

I think they look good. Must fit mine soon before I knacker the paint on the sills. (they're still in the large 'to be fitted one day' box of parts)

I think it's weird that they fit the Elan better than they fit the Fiesta!


Bye for now

Jim, how about some clear cover/guard film for your repainted Elan -- should fit and look better to a fresh surface than a 15 year old painted one!

Ford part number 1144644 has been changed and the new part number is 1520507. Still seems to be the same item and still fits just fine.

Keep a close eye on them - I found that on a bumpy road it's very easy to knock them off.
I was very lucky to find one of mine again, and need to find a much more secure method of attaching them next time.
Striking fear into the hearts of duplicate posts everywhere...! :P

You're absolutely right that the kit needs a little tweaking to be secure. There is not a sufficient lip for the clips to be very secure, so a few minor mods are needed to improve the attachment. Anyone moderately handy should be able to make the setup work fine though.

I'm sure there are a number of ways to improve the security of the attachment. I modified the clips a little by trimming the ends of them off a bit so they would not need quite as deep of a lip to grip well and I also added one small stainless bolt and nyloc nut on the very inner lip of the setup (which is under the car and not visible). With modest tweaking it can be made to stay put pretty well (although I am keeping an eye on it).

Im armourfending my sills after my repaint...however I wouldnt mind some mudflaps....
however I prefer the lotus originals....just for the simple fact that they appear to be of a rubber/flexible style rather than the rigid ford versions
anyone any ideas??...
cheers
