I doubled up the mounting screws holding the radiator surround panel to the crashbox. Also doubled up the screws holding the wheel arch liners to the car. I used the VW rawl plugs, which are a square hole fitment, then used the VW torx screws to hold it all down, so everything is properly bolted together and doesn't move around. If you click on one of the photos above, youll get into my photobucket album, the only pictures I have are on there, but check the little white plastic things screwed into the crashbox, then look for the black torx screws one the rad surround panel.

Got it!!...great mods...
Love my Elan...Learning to live with my 111R!
