Would you mind having a look at the photos, and if you recognise anything (even if it is not Lotus) please say what it is!
Call the top LHS number one, then the columns each have 10 items.
Th second photo is of the larger items.
They all came as a job lot and I have no clue what they are!
Many thanks

Born, and brought home from the hospital (no seat belt (wtf)) in a baby!
Find out where the limits are, and start from there

In the first photo, The second rectangular plate down from the Gear lever gaiter securing plate is the Backing Plate for the servo bracket. It's missing two captive nuts.

Directly under the rear spring top plate is a +2 lower facia mount bracket.

#43. Radio -I think is a front clamping bracket. Should be a pair, one supporting each radio knob.

Coming up short I thought I’d cheat and get into the parts manual and also a parts book from the old sports car world days in Texas and you can see where all these random brackets come and go from and I’m hoping you don’t have the parts book or I figured we wouldn’t have this quiz to begin with, thanks Gordon

Even handier (if that's a word) is that the parts lists are available here on the forum, in the WIKI, under the Shop Floor heading.
