Dave, you best bet might be Dave Bauerle in Radnor, Ohio, just outside
Columbus.  He is a first class DeLorean specialist a little more than a three

Subject: DOA Website Friendly to Ken's Show

I do not know when this happened, but the DOA website now features links
to Ken Koncelik's DeLorean Car Show website.  This includes the "All
DeLoreans Meet in Cleveland" gif emblem.  To top it off, they have added
a very flattering paragraph about the Cleveland show which encourages
users to visit Ken's site and see the pictures of the show.

To see these things, go to the DOA website:

http://www.delorean-owners.org/

Then click on "Marketplace."  Alternatively, you can find the same
information by going straight to the DOA's DeLorean Store.  They have
given users the ability to skip the rest of the DOA site, which is
another new development for them:

Subject: Re: Gull wings/saftey issue

That's what seemed to happen a lot in the crash test videos I have. In the
slow motion film of the head-on crash tests, one of the first things you see
after the front of the car begins to crumple is both doors fly up. Of course
these were prototypes and design changes in the production versions are
quite possible. That is why they do crash tests after all.

The main safety issue with the doors is if you end up upside down in an
accident. Doors won't open, and windows are to small to serve as exits.
You're best option in this senario is to kickout the windshield. Luckly, the
DeLorean has a very low center of gravity and is unlikely to roll over.

Subject: Re: Gull wings/saftey issue



Dear dml,

    The DeLorean was designed as a safety car, and is one of the world's 
safest automobiles. It was intended for the Mercedes Benz, Acura, Infiniti, 
Lexus, & Jaguar crowd. These particular machines have a panache for style and 
grace, however they have an extremely safe and well made.
    The DeLorean was 15 years ahead of the level that it took Lexus/Toyota, 
Infiniti/Nissan, and Acura/Honda to attain in terms of perceived value, 
status, and quality. The educated consumer knew that these automobiles were 
some of the finest examples of quality and safety. This is true with the 
DeLorean as well. In my opinion the automotive press was way too concerned 
with drag strip performance and unrealistic comparison to the corvette. The 
DeLorean had evolved too far ahead of the 78-82 corvette in terms of a buyer 
wanting a more luxurious and prestigious automobile, but this is another 
story. 
    In addition, Allstate Insurance Inc. contributed to the research and 
development of the Elastic Reservoir Molding (ERM) process for the DeLorean. 
However the technology to develop ERM was a substantial cost to DMC so Lotus 
changed DeLorean's mind about using it in a production automobile. The 
Variable Assisted Resin Injection (VARI) process used in the Lotus Esprit 
outerbody and DeLorean underbody, incorporate stiffening areas filled with 
beams of foam. The foam used is extremely hard to crush and provides 
excellent protection via front, side, and rear impact. 
    Additionally, The United States Federal Government contracted AMF and 
Fairchild to build the experimental US safety car, and it had gullwing doors. 
John DeLorean touted the gullwings in the DeLorean automobile much safer than 
a conventional car because the higher door sill protected the driver in a 
side impact collision. 
    Keep in mind that until the late 1990s automobile manufactures offered 
side impact collision airbags as standard features. So it is "safe" to say 
that the DeLorean is a very safe car.
    There are two films that I was able to locate from NHTSA about 5 years 
ago. The films show the production DeLorean in a closing barrier impact speed 
of 35 and 40 mph. The car did well considering the impact speed was 70 and 80 
mph. (35x2 = 70, 40x2 =80mph) The problem area was the fuel pump boot. The 
pump broke free from the boot, spilling small amounts of fuel into the 
passenger compartment. This was NHTSA only viable complaint.

Michael

Hi folks--
  Regarding the trip back from PA(I know I sent a LONG post before) ~750mi,
no problem. I am sure that the ticking sound is a valve problem, not a
leaking gasket. Hopefully that will be fixed this weekend...I am going to IL
DMV tomorrow to transfer the PA title to IL and get plates. I do plan to get
a personalized plate...not sure what yet, although I have a couple ideas in
mind...:) Wish me luck.
  Insurance...USAA finally came thru. Intially, they had disapproved
insurance on the DElorean. I insisted and eventually talked to the head of
underwriters for the company. I now have full coverage on the Delorean for a
reasonable rate. Yes.
  Well, that is all. Geez, that is the shortest post I've had yet.

Subject: No door keys

Another predicament I have found myself in.  I have never had door keys to
my car. The driver's door lock is broken in such a way that any key will
lock/unlock it and that originally made me think it was a one-key car.
However that is starting to fail such that NO key works on the driver's side
without alot of wiggling. And of course, I don't have a key for the
passenger's side! So lately I have taken to never locking the car lest I get
locked out for good.

A couple questions:

Can keys be make for the existing locks or will I need all new locks?

How easy is it to replace the locks if I have to replace one or both?

Thanks for any advice.

Maybe the wall ( real or imagined) has fallen. I for one, welcome the warming

nice and friendly as everyone else. Having discussed this topic so many times 
before I'm glad to see that the organizations have found that we all can help 
each other in our goals of promoting the Delorean. With the DOA offering this 
olive branch we as Delorean owners should let problems from the past remain 
there and try to find some common ground that we all can build on. Thank you 
to the DOA for taking the first step. Note, there is a link to the DOA on the 
clubs listing on the DML web site. Who knows maybe someday we will see a 
write up about the DML in the Delorean World. Again thank you to who ever in 
the DOA decided to take the first step in bridging the gap between our two 
organizations. We all have a common goal and that is trying to tell the world 
about this great auto we all love so much!!!

Hello list,

I am currently in the process of restoring VIN#5641. Everything seems 
to be going well but I have a quick question for all those that know 
the engine bay inside and out.
In the files area of egroups, I have place two pictures of my engine 
bay (under a folder called wiring), one shows the location of said 
wires, the other the wires themselves. Now my question!
Four wires have cut and twisted together. Nearby is a small plug that 
has wires that match two of the cut wires, I assume that these were 
at one time two of the cut wires also had a plug that fitted the 
loose one, why would these wires be cut from the plug and wired in to 
something else? If you look at the pictures you'll see what I 
mean.....I'm no good at explaining this!
This is all just above the manafold near the airbox....

If more detailed pictures would help then I can post them.

Thanks

Subject: Re: grinding power window

If you have the original window regulators, the grinding is bad and
indicates imminent failure.

I, too, have the scratches on one of my windows, but in the tint and
not the glass.  It was due to the felt strip in the door coming loose
and no longer protecting the window. (Part #106129).

My driver's side window was scratched when I got the car, but this was
due to the window being out of adjustment and the owner continuing to
use it.  I had that window replaced since scratched glass tends to
shatter.  Check out the diagram:

Subject: Re: grinding power window

Sounds like the inner window guide is comming/came off. If you look 
down into the door you should see a strip of felt that pushes against 
the inside of the glass. Over time (or in my case heat) the glue can 
loosen that holds the felt onto a rubber strip. When the window rolls 
down, the front portion loses contact w/the strip, which can allow 
the glass to dig under the felt when it returns up. Once the felt has 
come out of place, the rubber will then be "grabbed" by the glass. 
Going up it makes an unpleasant noise, going down the rubber will be 
pulled out of place. Since the rubber strip is attached to a metal 
bracket, the scratches on the glass may be caused by the sharp 
bracket rubbing on the glass as it goes up and down.

Let's accept this olive branch and build better relations between the DOA and 
DML.  Together we can accomplish much for the marque.

Dear dml,

    I think that a big THANK YOU to the DeLorean Owners Association from all 
of the list members would be a very gracious and courteous. All of us want 
the DeLorean to be as successful now as it was when first introduced. We 
should keep the positive comments flowing towards the DeLorean, the DeLorean 
Owners Association and the DML.

Mike

Subject: De Lorean One online store...

hey List,

      I don't know if anyone has checked out the De Lorean One web site 
recently, but they just added an online store very similar to the way DMC 
Houston created their web page.  To me it seems odd for De Lorean One to 
spend all the time, energy, and money into creating that online store if they 
don't want to deal with any owners who are online (speaking from personal 
experience of course).  Just wanted to let the list know.

Later,
Nick

Sean,

    I have a 1990 Maxima right now and my windows weren't grinding but b/c
the car is 10 years old the rubber the window glides on wore out.  My
mechanic suggested i get some Heavy Duty Silicon spray and really get the
rubber in the windows sprayed good.  This might help you and is cheaper than
having to replace the window regulators which are expensive (a pair is
$495.00 from PJ Grady).  Well good luck,

-Mikey D
