This kit is designed to make the removal of the 2005+ Lotus Elise rear clamshell quick and easy. The contents of this kit when combined with a few modifications, makes the clamshell removal in less than 10 minutes. With the clamshell off, engine service is performed easily, reducing the labor costs for repair work.


-Billet aluminum decklid hinge brace
-4 black anodized laser cut aluminum body shim pads (73% lighter than stock)
-4 green anodized aluminum body shim spacers (x4)
-2 sets of precut super adhesive nylon hook and loop -Stainless steel hardware
-Detailed installation instructions

Part of the modification process is to separate the deck lid hinge mounting points from the firewall. The included hinge brace adds structure back into the hinge support member after the modification is made.

The factory steel body shims are taped on to the rear subframe and upper rollbar mount. The aluminum Radium shims bolt in place for a more permanent solution using stainless steel countersink hardware.


The billet spacers are all anodized black. They take place of the steel roll of body shim washers.

The body shim spacers are anodized green. 


The billet aluminum clam hinge braces are available in three finishes: Titanium Silver Nickel-Plated, Bright Dip Black Anodized, and Radium Green Anodized (shown below).

Modular Clamshell Kit
Hey guys. I finally got around to installing the modular clam kit. What a fantastic product. The instructions were incredibly easy to follow and very detailed. The install is very straight forward and not overly complicated at all. All the pieces of the kit seem to be of the highest quality and I could tell that a lot of thought and engineering went into it. A couple of my Lotus owning friends helped me install it and were so impressed they are getting the kit for themselves. I much prefer this kit to the tilting option since you don't have to sacrifice functionality of certain aspects of the car plus it is MUCH more affordable than other solutions and with the clam completely off the car you have complete access to the entire motor, not just the sides like with the tilting solution. Just a very, very good, affordable product with excellent documentation. Very impressive work.
