Hand Book PDF Download

Postby surfboardfiller » Thu 09.12.2010, 23:45

I have scanned in my hand book for the greater good of the community.
The reason for this, is that some people have bought cars with the handbook missing.
These are not available from Lotus, or any other dealer I have tried and as they are full of vital information; I feel it should be available to all owners.

I have uploaded the iHandbook
This is an interactive version where the previous one had only bookmarks, this one has links too!
Simply click the left mouse button on the section you want, either in the Content page at the front, or Index at the back, then that page shold be displayed just as you would expect from an 'i' something.

Also I have an area top left of each page where you can return to the Contents page when clicked.

Now I'll get told someone else has done an OCR and made an HTML page already, Al. :poke:

Any sensible suggestions welcome and please have a look to see if I have missed something or if its not working.

Cheers,

Ho Ho Ho! :-D

Thank you very much. My handbook's been kept in the car all its life, so it's got... wet, would you believe, and most of the pages are stuck together. It's great to be able to read it, so again, thanks. :clap:

Thanks Phil... I was in the process of scanning mine to post on here... I figured that it was the only manual I didn't have a copy of in PDF format...
You have done a much better job than I could have done.....

Many thanks

Thank you Phil. Even though I sourced an owners manual recently I want
to express my gratitude. It is people like you as well as others that make
LEC one of the best websites for car enthusiasts.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Because yours is a different print run it has been removed.
Maybe just the early cars came with this version but I never had a car with the straps even though I had the handbook with them.
I think it may be the handbook with Johns BRG (I sold him last year).

The very early ones didn't have the stowage locking mechanism we are familiar with, I only saw one without and that went to Specky for an epic restoration. I wonder if he found any straps in the back.
The manual I have for the Kit car project doesn't have the strap illustration.

If I remember I'll dig my handbook out and have a look to see if it's from that one!
