- www.LotusPIG.org.uk - our sister site which aims to be the most comprehensive searchable database of Lotus parts alternatives on the web.
- MAJCD213's blog about total restoration - if it needs to be done, Mike probably did it.
- Steve's records of jobs done on his car (when he had one) - useful for belts and headlining in particular.
- Wikipedia's Lotus Excel entry.
- "Jimmy Bond Jr".'s online Lotus Excel register
and - since so much of the Excel is from the MA61 Celica Supra Mk II - here's a link to that car's parts manual.
