Elite/Eclat/Excel interchange, editable spreadsheet for all!

Recommended Posts


Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

im going to make it Elite/Eclat only, i can always copy it over and make an Excel one, i feel theres probably too many differences to have them all in one sheet there.. 

 

heres the Excel one, its the same as how I left the Elite Eclat one, as i assume there are some similarities, but is currently wrong, so the Excel knowledgeable can put it right   ;)

Im lifting everything from Golden Gate lotus` page and anything else i can find on the net, including speculative (will be indicated with a ?)    thats mostly part numbers, cross references to common cars would be super handy if people know them for ebay searches and whatnot..

S1 Fuse box is 100% Ford, I've added the Ford part number to the spreadsheet.  Although as already noted, the fuse box lid seems to be specific to the Lotus.

Thanks for that.  Just been thinking I probably need a replacement fusebox.  New replacements aren't cheap though, are they!

i think the engine mounts are austin allegro vanden plas/austin metro.

Engine mounts are almost certainly British Leyland, I'm just not sure which models.  I've got a parts catalogue handy for the Metro so I had a quick look.  There's a couple of different part numbers listed, NAM1975 looks very like it based on this ebay pic http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281965003352?clk_rvr_id=1000571688563&rmvSB=true

Small detail but I've updated the spreadsheet with the slightly obscure bulb used in the console illumination lamp based on this discussion http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/81018-interior-light/

are you sure? I thought the manual right hand drive rack was triumph herald/dolomite? I know the PAS rack is used in a Ford, but thought the manual was BL?

My S2 is wearing a manual Triumph rack, but it was originally a PAS car,.
