I, too have been a satisfied State Farm customer for years. When I 
got my D, I called them up and they added it to my policy at a very 
reasonable price without a blink.
However, it is essentially impossible to generalize about insurance 
companies. They set their policies based on complex criteria, 
including your age, your zip code, how long you have been a customer, 
your driving record, etc, etc. Moreover, these criteria are applied 
regionally, not nationally, and they are constantly shifting as 
companies target specific market segments via aggressive pricing 
while raising prices in other segments in hopes that existing 
customers will not bother to shop around. Add to this the variability 
in service attributable to the personality of your particular agent 
and it becomes clear that the situation is pretty chaotic.

A question for all UK D owners.
We have to fit a high intensity rear fog light to meet current MOT standards. 
Altering the rear lights is not a problem, but finding a switch to operate 
the lights from the interior that doesn't look out of place is.
What sort of switches have people used, have they been 'borrowed' from any 
particular car?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

    The answer to the question that someone posted asking is there molds left 
for the underbodies,,,,the answer is YES,,,,,,A friend of mine and I took 
massive amounts of pictures and video of this,,,,Last June he and I talked to 
Steven and he let us go up to the warehouse just to look around 
ourselves,,,of course there was two people there that work for Steven that 
was taking orders and shipping parts,,,after looking around the beautiful 
bunch of parts we decided to see what else we could get into  and went down a 
few floors,,,,,the SENATOR,,,,being a good bullshiter got us out of trouble 
and actually got us a private tour of the molds by a strange little 
guard,,,this is a story in itself,,,how we found them we were of course where 
we probably weren't suppose to be and behind a fake wall there they sat,,,on 
a floor all alone,,,,a set for the top and a set for the bottom,,,,,,I don't 
know of course why these things were actually hidden but who knows,,,,and 
another story of our little trip before we saw the molds we were down in the 
basement of this place and there along with a Jag and another car I can't 
remember, is a DeLorean,,,dirty and in bad shape,,,,,there were some gauges 
on the knee pad that were extra and right below the vin plate there was 
another little plate,,,,I took a pic of this but the flash made it 
unreadable,,,I can't remember what it was,,,if anyone knows please share, I 
did manage to take a pic of the gauges on the knee pad right below the 
dash,,,don't know if an individual did this or this was something from the 
factory that they were adding,,,,to add to the mold story,,the guard told us 
that he had heard that the floor that the molds sat on was to be the assembly 
line,,,because they wanted to assemble the remaining parts into cars and sell 
them,,,in fact there are documents to which I  wish I had copies that Marvin 
C. was looking for a company to make the stainless steal panels after they 
used up the remaining stock,,and of course we all know that this didn't come 
to pass,, hope you enjoyed this little story,,,,,,if anyone doesn't believe 
me about the molds,,,,I have many pics to prove the story,
     Take care fellow D lovers,

There are 2 types of third brake lights, the one that your refering to
is mounted to the louvers, on the roof of the car. I don't know what
exact year Corvette it's from, but the main problem looks to be
mounting it (looks to be epoxy). I'd probably go with the second type
which is a thin strip of LED's attached w/double stick tape. Complete
specs & installation procedures are locate in DMC-News Zine-001 which
is available from the DMC News website.

In defense of the OEM horns and just for the record you should know that
they sound great when they are new. After 18 years of being exposed to the
elements they gradually loose sound quality and volume.

With profound regrets, I announce to the De Lorean owners community the 
death of Charles Muffley.  Up until his recent illness, Charlie and Gladys
were regular participants in shows along the east coast as well as Eastern
Regional Runs.
Charlie was particularly known in our community for his aspirated De Lorean.
He did the conversion himself.  He prided himself in doing most of the work
on his De Lorean without benefit of a lift or a garage.  His inquisitiveness
led him to do the conversion in the first place and then he converted it
back to fuel injection.
He loved his De Lorean, his family, and life in general.
Charlie succumbed to cancer on September 27, 1999.  Expressions of sympathy
may be sent to:

Nigel,
I would guess (but don't know for sure) that you could convert one of the "=
blanks" next to the window swithches into a working switch.  I would try ge=
tting another rear defroster switch (since this has distinct on/off positio=
ns), and see if you can get it to work in either the far right or far left =
slot.
If you attempt this, let me know if it works....

 Would it be possible to get another rear defroster switch and take off the 
white markings on the top of it and hook it up to the lights?  That way you 
can put it in the centre console and it would not look out of place.  Just a 
thought what does everyone else think?

Have you thought of buying a window switch and putting it in one of the two 
dummy positions in the center console?  Actually, a rear defrost switch 
would be better but I remember those were hard to come by.  Also, I wonder 
if anyone knows if the factory was planning to use these dummy switch slots 
for anything?  Perhaps they were originally intended to hold switches to 
OPEN the doors?  (ala Bricklin)  Of course, I guess they could've also been 
for the oil slick and driver eject functions...
Ok...you're right..definately for the time circuits.

I was wondering, does the Delorean manual transmition spit out extra
tranny fluid when it is over filled?  the reason I ask this is because
my Delorean spit some out over time when I filled it to the top (bad
idea, i konw) but now it doesn;t spit it out at all.  when I say spit,
I mean about 10 drips after a long drive.

I have been able to thoroughly track the history of my Delorean back to
1987. What I am trying to find out now is the dealer that it was originally
sold. I know that it was sold in San Francisco, CA.
If anyone still has their dealer book and can look up the dealers that sold
the Deloreans in San Francisco and pass it along to me, I would greatly
appreciate it.

Subject: [DML] Electrical system, ventilation, and radio questions from a newbie.
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
I've just got a Delorean shipped in from California via open truck.  As
expected, there have been a few little problems since receiving the
vehicle.
First off, the ventilation system and electrical system seem to have a
problem which may or may not be related.  When we test drove the car
earlier in California, the AC was not cold, but the ventilation was
quite good.  The fan was strong and the airflow from the vents seemed
solid.  Since bringing it into SC, however, the fan still seems to run
strongly, and feeling the intake on the front of the car (in front of
the windshield) it seems to pull strongly.  However, the vents
themselves produce very little airflow.
Also, earlier today while driving the car at night with the lighting on,
the fan temporarily switched off.  At first, I thought that it was a
fuse failure, but a few minutes later I turned the fan back on and
everything was fine again.  It's like it just temporarily overloaded. 
But I also noticed that the one vent which was working earlier in the
day failed after this "trip".  Any ideas as to the cause of these two
problems?
Finally, I ran into a problem because the radio seems to work, but the
little LCD display doesn't.  Has anyone else experienced this before,
and if so what was the problem (loose/broken connection somewhere,
etc).  It is the original Delorean Craig radio.
Thanks,
