S1 Hardtop fitment to Pre-3332 Elise S1

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a factory hardtop for my Feb.98 Elise S1 not knowing as a pre-3332 chassis car that for the hardtop to fit, may need modifications to the cantrails. I have scoured the net and all the comments are very vague and I contacted Elise parts, they think their cantrails fittings upgrade may be the answer. Has anybody got any experience of fitting the factory top to an early car? What is the sequence of fitting the top, what is removed and what is left in place?

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Not exact sure what changed to allow the hard top to attach on later S1’s like mine but this is a current eBay ad for some left over bits... plus instructions for that change over. Maybe it will help?
