Common Part With Other Cars?

PostPost by: the rolfie » Thu Apr 22, 2004 8:24 pm

New to this game and have just got an 1970 +2 looking to get some new parts and wondering if there is a list of cars that share the same parts. Also where can I get diagrams of the car with part numbers to make ordering easy? Thanks for any help you can give

There is a thread on just this topic under "Things in Common" you might like to have a look at.

For good diagrams showing every part of your car you can do no better than the genuine Lotus Parts Book. They are readily available at about ?50. I have also seen copies for sale for about ?25

Good Luck

Also be sure to get "The Complete Lotus Elan" by Robinshaw and Ross.
