They'll be the same as MGA, the later two adjuster ones won't work with proper lotus bodywork as the back of the headlamp bucket needs trimming. The three adjuster ones from the MGA don't have any issues with being trimmed. I don't know if the panels you have will require trimming the buckets but it's something to look into.

The license plate lamp is a Lucas L594, tail lamps and signals are L488.

Moss and others will have the tail and signals, but I don't know who would stock the license lamp.

As for the headlamps, yes the 3 adjuster type is what you want.
