Header Fabrication

Nov 2, 2010 update on MacLotus's 1999 Lotus Elise Sport 190 (Series 1)

Since this build is custom, there are no off-the-shelf solutions for the header.

Here you can see the initial mock-up, but we’ve left the fiber board in only as a reference point for exhaust system position. We’ll pull it out and install some custom sheet metal in the next step.

You also might notice the Cold Air Intake on the left. Again, just a mock-up for now. This will all integrate with custom sheet metal (aluminum) to compartmentalize areas of the engine bay (heat/air management).

Wait till the get ceramic coated with a black satin finish. It should look nice with the custom yellow silicone hoses and stainless braid fuel and oil lines.

Stay tuned… Mac out.
