Really nice, can you get it without the stripes (or different colour)?

That looks very, very nice Dirk. If you don't mind me asking what was the lead time from order to delivery?

Well , mine was the  first to be made, so he had to make the molding (took several months) shipped to me with UPS , came home damaged,shipped it back to Italy , repaired it (took 2 months) shipped it back to me with UPS ,came home broken again , shipped it back to Italy , made me a complete new one for free , and 3th time shipping was a succes ,so all together it took me around 14 months :-) ..Eltech products are really nice but I think you have to wait at least 2 months (if you're lucky)

Saw this in person; great quality stuff!!  Fits very snug (I guess somewhat "lower" than OEM, but that's a good thing in this case).  We might do a side-by-side comparison with the WinAce front access panel 😉

14 months?? Many people don't keep these cars for that long! I admire your patience!

How long would it have taken had they not broken the first one?

Great one! Do you have pics of the install? Was it easy to fit? Is there a manual or so for installation?

You have to remove the wheel arch liners on both sides to remove the original panel and use the original pins, right?

Yes, wheel arch liners must be removed to be able to remove the left and right black plastic thingy.  The upper left and right pins are reused, as is the locking pin.  For the front, your new access panel should come with new pins as the original ones are bonded to the to-be-removed mesh.

No need for a manual, it's easy ....

 

Do you have pictures of the removed panel (as it´s delivered)? Are the two front pins delivered with the panel?

Can you describe what you mean with "lower" than OEM? 

The elise shop panel looks like the red part at the front is higher than OEM 🤔

Doesn't this panel have a curve at the top/middle where the wiper sits? Can't remember if the OEM carbon does or not - but I know the black on the 350 does!

Eltech acces should be the same as the oem Lotus one,because I bought the fiberglass one at Komotec (and this was advertised as oem)sended it to Italy and Matteo made the same one in carbon fibre for me.....
