Hi Si,

I found a tool roll with only the combination pliers in my Eclat Excel and have the choice to either complete it or simply replace it with another tool kit. Originality is no issue for me. If you want to have a go at completing the set, I'd be happy to let it go.


I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Hi Si -  @Lotusfab put together a toolkit for a Turbo Esprit in pretty quick time late last year. Here's the thread where the discussion started - bottom of the page. I can't remember if there was a separate thread about it.

Thank you for your help. I'll start my hunt this weekend at the NEC.

Thank you Filip, I'll be sending you a pm.

For anyone who wants to make up an original toolkit for their cars here are some extracts from the early S3 Esprit parts manual. All tools carry the 075 prefix showing they were common to the Type 75 Elite with the exception of the 17mm socket which has a 082 Turbo Esprit code.
