Elite : Kaizen, those small manufacture changes.

General Excel discussions. You may also post Eclat and Elite information here. If there is enough call I will set up new categories or even a new BB for them.

Might have guessed it. That's the one in need of more attention :evil:. At least there's no holes in them though. :) and I won't have to worry about whether it's upside down.

Ref the sill trims, I was looking at parts list recently and noticed there is a comment for the trim saying that the A075U0723 part number is a replacement for item X050B1274. 050 series numbers relate to Elan plus 2's I think. Looking to me like Lotus were using up Elan +2 stock when they built the early cars, then changed to the Elite specific item. Don't know if the wheel base was the same, but I'm guessing it must be if the +2 part number is directly referenced.
