Can anyone help with identifying these parts from my 1970 + 2S?

Cheers

Jono,

I think some are the following
11 and 12 are parts of the bonnet release cable assy.
7, rad brackets
4, lower dash bracket
16, bonnet hinge/support frame
5, bonnet release captive nut plates
6, looks like might be one of the interior light boxes
9, may be a handbrake support bracket

Dont recognise much else.

Cheers,
Simon

Hi Jono,
maybe n?6 is surround for gearlever to hold gaiter in place
n?10 clamp to hold end of the outer handbrake cable in place under the dash
is n?2 a support stay for the electic cooling fan to rad brackets
It seems you have a big 3D Lotus Jigsaw puzzle to pass away a few hours
good luck Alan.b

Cheers chaps,

I think that just about settles it for most items

Item 2 are however fairly chunky solid machined items - thye look a bit too heavy for a fan brace :?

Alan - No13, damn!! I built up the rear hub assemblies with new bearings and missed these out - will it matter?

No 1 appears to have been made up from an airbox, but to what end... no idea! Remnants of a weber linkage? - difficult to tell from picture. Modified for a square air filter - but no idea what the tube thingy is!

Given that most of the stuff you've got there is from the engine compartment/bonnet area, perhaps number 6 could be some sort of plinth/surround for the engine bay lamp - although it's hard to judge the scale of it compared to the other stuff... C

No. 10 looks like a clamp that fits at the rear of the parking brake mechanism.

8 and 9 look like the handbrake attachment brackets
16 fits inside bonnet flat arms are pop riveted to bonnet sides.
15 looks like boot floor support brackets. Look to see if one has little clips riveted on to capture the protrusion on floor bottom
12 look like the guides for the bonnet release cable. Fit on either side of firewall.
11 may be bonnet release cable ends. Look similar to early +2 not sure.

#7 looks like radiator core support brackets. Wheel well to side plates that bolt up to rad.
