Here is a simple parts list for fixing the Elise shifter flex.
For the Sands mod (first published back in 2006) follow their install instructions / photos included. If you only do one modification, this is the one to do.
Purchased at Ace Hardware: cost $2.19
made by Jandorf
L 1 1/8″
Bolt needed: (same tread size as bolts holding down seat, just different length), also get a nice flat washer as well and use lock-tite
Bolt: M8 x 50 / 1.25 pitch
For the Sector 111 mod, i did not drill out the drivers side hole as i did not feel it was needed (and one less hole in the car) I however drilled out the passenger side which was empty and inserted a bolt up from the bottom of the car with a 2″ washer (stainless with silicone) and put a self locking nut on top.
These updates really make a difference strengthening up the shifter plate.
