Can anyone confirm if the Europa bonnet lock is the same as used for the Elan boot lock

Yes, the bonnet - & engine cover lock - on the Europa is basically the same as fitted to the S2 Elan boot, & the locks that have recently been listed on ebay as Elan fittings are a direct replacement for the Europa applications. I have bought one of these so can be sure (having owned two Elan T/C Specials in the past)

However, the flat arm that secures the boot lid on the Elan is different (at least it is on my S2) - it is longer.

This flat arm is easily swapped by removing the bolt that secures the whole assembly.
