Passenger foot rest


Recommended Posts

Has anyone fitted a foot rest to a v6? Ie a RHD Version of https://www.eliseparts.com/products/show/95/708/lhd-passenger-footrest/

How did handle the fully carpeted foot well? Did you shorten the mat and cut the side covers? 

Cheers.

Fitted one in my old Club Racer & had the mat cut down by a trimmer, Also have one in my Sport 350 & have tried to buy a short mat again without success so far, so will probably visit the same trimmer again at some point.

Lotus mats are a pain, they come in two widths depending on if the car has carpeted sills or not. When I had the Club Racer without carpeted sills, Paul at Oakmere got me a narrow short mat which left a 1” gap down the side, so I returned it. Bought a 350 Sport which needed the narrower mat & they’ve no idea where the short mat came from! So I’ve still got a longer mat over the top of the footrest until I visit a trimmer again. 

 Also with regards to the mats there are different profiles depending on type of gear change, pre-Sport 350 & post + the Auto.

Steve,

Thanks, I have a friendly trimmer who i could use but i was hoping to be able to fit/remove without to much hassle, so will have to obtain a new map for my 350.
The foot rest in the link seems to stick to the sill/"tunnel", is that how yours fixes or have you stuck it to the floor ?

Thx ... Andy

I ordered the parts through Paul @ Oakmere, footrest, Velcro & a sticky backed bit of foam as per deroure. Footrest velcros straight to the floor & it seemed pretty solidly mounted. The mat is the most frustrating part but Sport 350 mats are much cheaper than the older V6S mats. Some early Sport 350’s had a footrest fitted but neither Oakmere or B&C could come up with the correct narrow (carpeted side sills) short mat for me & yet I saw the correct mat when I originally added a footrest to my Club Racer which didn’t have carpeted side sills!

Had the same issue's when adding the footrest in my CR, The car came with the correct "long" mat for the passenger foot well, bu no one could source the short mat. In the end I fitted the footrest and let the mat sit on top, over time its sagged and now looks like an OEM solution lol.

I can raise @alias23 ‘s footrest offer with a full set of genuine carpets.

Full coverage (over the “step” in front of the seats) short passenger version with footrest.

Any good?
