Subject: Re: Re: Cleaning A Delorean

I don't recommend using the #180 grit sand paper, let alone the #220.  I
replaced my door lock with the smaller escutcheon Volvo ignition variety and
found that the larger original lock left a deep polish print in the
stainless.  I removed this print using #80 grit sand paper.  It took a lot
of scratching, but the print finally wore away.  I scratched up the
surrounding area to blend in and then finished it up with a black
Scotchbrite pad.  This matches the factory finish perfectly, and it is what
Rob Grady told me to use.  (He sold me the locks and the Scotchbrite pads.)

If you use anything finer than this combination, then to that extent you are
going to end up polishing the stainless instead of texturing it.  But be
very careful with the direction of the texture you apply.  One stroke in a
wrong or curved pattern will take a lot more scratching to correct.

Subject: The real cost of a Delorean

I got to thinking...

If anyone knows approximately how much investment money was lost due to DMC
going out of business, then we could divide out how much money was lost per
vehicle made.  This would be fun to know.

Then when someone asks me what my car is worth, I could tell them I don't
know, but it cost $$$$ bucks to make it.  If this number is very high (and
I'm sure it is) then this would put the value of our cars in a different
perspective.

Do we have any mathematicians/trivia experts out there who wish to tackle
this?

Has anyone ever tried to put a Mazda RX-7 Rotary engine in a Delorean?  I love the power these motors make, and I think it would be cool do have a Delorean with that kind of power.

Subject: Good Delorean Experience (please read PNDC members)

Hello everyone,

I would like to tell you about a great experience for me.  Today (sunday) I not only saw a Delorean for the first time, but I saw about TEN Deloreans!  I was driving up the Oregon coast on highway 101, and in the town of Nehalem, I turned the corner to see a gravel parking lot full of Beautiful Deloreans.  I didn't even think about it, I just immediately pulled over and got out of the car to check them out.  There was a red one there, and the one and only Delorean trailer too!  I couldn't believe my luck.  I talked to one of the guys, (sorry I never got your name) and he told me they were the Pacific Northwest Delorean Club.  When I got there, they were just leaving, so I didn't get to hang around very long.  (By the way, if any of you were there, I was the guy driving the Mazda RX-7)  I left with them, and I got to be in front of their caravan for a while :)

I was totally amazed at how low and wide these cars really are!  And so shiny!  The stainless steel is beautiful.  You really have to see one to understand, because a picture just doesn't cut it.

Any members of the PNDC, please respond if you remember me!  I would love to get together with you some time to get a closer look at your cars.  That really made my day to see them!

Dave,

Make sure the starter solenoid modification has been performed.  I had the 
same problem when I bought my DeLorean.  There's a service bulletin that 
describes this procedure.  I can't remember the number, but I'm sure someone 
on the list knows it.

Subject: flat tires - warning and question

I got a flat tire last night and would like to share some insights:
1)  The spare is very old.  It looked great, and when I put it on the car
and lowered the jack, everything seemed fine.  After driving 3 feet,
however, all the pressure leaked out.  Bummer at midnight on a work night.
2)  No amount of coaxing will enable a rear tire to fit into the trunk.  The
only place it will fit is the passenger seat.  If you get a flat, you have
to choose whether to abandon your tire or your passenger.  Fortunately, I
didn't have a passenger.   But I did have a large towel (which I recommend
for everyone's 'emergency tools' kit) to protect my NEW leather seats from
the tire.
3)  AAA is a wonderful service, and if you ask, they will send a flatbed.
The driver stopped off for a disposable camera, and used up all the film on
my car.
 
I also have some questions.  Does anyone know if the spare can be fixed?
May it just need to be pulled from the rim and remounted?  If so, can any
tire place do this?  Also, when I got home it looked like the alignment
between the rear fascia and the stainless quarter panels had shifted
(although it was dark, and I was tired, so I could be wrong).  Has anyone
experienced this after towing?
 
Dan.

Hello List,
    My car hasnt been running in about a month because my ECU went bad.  I 
just got a new one today and now I have run into another problem.  The fuel 
enrichment circuit unit is not buzzing when the car starts or when jumped.  I 
even jumped it from the RPM relay and all I got was a click from the lambda 
relay but no buzzing.(I had a rubber band around the full throttle 
microswitch while doing this so it would operate.)  I checked the connections 
on the relay and they are fine and I even rewired it back to the enrichment 
unit and still nothing.  what could be the problem?  any ideas?

Thank You

  Hello,

  Today I finally bought a DeLorean.
  It's an 81 and still has the original Lock-Module...
  I unhooked the brown wire tos save my solenoids (they're still OK) 
  and am considering buying a LockZilla.

  Can anyone tell me if the LockZilla can take an external signal 
  (from a car-alarm) to lock and unlock the doors?

  I HAVE to put in an alarm (for my insurance), which allready has 
  a remote, so a LockZilla Remote would be of no use...

  By studying the electrical diagram I think it can be done
  (even on an original module) by letting a relay work parralel
  to the door-lock-switches, but I am not sure.

  Please enlighten me!

Rob Grady sells a remote module that hooks up to the LockZilla and will
unlock and lock the doors.  I got one myself and love it.  It just plugs
into the wirering harness, no splicing needed.

Does anyone have experience with a car shipper from the US to the UK

Dan,
Sorry to hear about your flat experience. I too have had a flat and found the 
spare low on air. A very common problem. I was lucky and had a place to air 
it up. You are right about no place for the rear tire to ride. I have one of 
the luggage racks just for this reason.Have not had to use it for this yet, 
but is a great place to haul 20lb sack of dog food. Save your $, contact DMC 
Houston, get a luggage rack. When not in use ,it stores in the compartment in 
the front. As for the repairing of the spare have no idea. But your posting 
can serve as a warning to all CHECK THE AIR IN YOUR SPARE!!!!!

slippage between the clutch disc and pressure plate. While driving the car
at highway speed (45-65mph) in 4th gear push the accelerator to the floor
while observing the tachometer. If the RPM's increase quickly with no
apparent change or very little change in speed you have a worn clutch disc,
pressure plate, and possibly a worn flywheel. If your DeLorean is equipped
with the original clutch and has more than 60k miles on the clutch system it
is not unusual for slippage to occur. You will need to have all of the
clutch parts inside the bell housing replaced. Be sure to ask your mechanic
to check the condition of the flywheel and replace the crankshaft lip seal.

Hmmmm. I'm sure this isn't the case. I cruised all the way home with the
problem....once you are totally in a gear and the clutch has "caught"
fully-the car drives/accelerates as normal. Of course, when I took the car
for a 15min drive to troubleshoot nothing out of the ordinary happened!!

Subject: Re: tires

The front is a 195/60-14 and the rear is a 235/60-15. A lot of tires don't
have BOTH of these sizes available. I highly recommend keeping both the
front and the rear the same model of tire if you drive the car very much.
Different models can affect handling drastically.

I personally recommend the Yokohama AVS Intermediate. This model tire is a
very good high performance tire with excellent dry and wet weather
performance. The price is very reasonable also. If you don't have a
Yokohama dealer near you, the tires can be ordered at a good price from the
Tire Rack  http://www.tirerack.com/   I can recommend them highly as I've
been ordering tires from them for the past 5 years. I paid $350 last year,
for a full set of 4 tires delivered to my door. They have a list of
recommended installers around the country that you can access on their web
site. If there isn't one in your area just try calling around. Many shops
will mount other brands of tires. Just find someone that doesn't hassle you
about it.

There was one for sale about two years ago on the internet,but it was 
about 80% complete,and I have no idea what became of it.I never 
downloaded any pictures of it.

Walt said "maybe whoever did your work for some reason took
your steering rack off and managed to put it back on upside down.  I have
read about that before on the DML."  Sorry, but I don't think you ever read
that on the DML. Its impossible to put the rack in upside down, unless you
are converting to RHD (and then it would also steer backwards).  If
installed incorrectly the pinion would either be pointed forward, or on the
RH side of the car.  Either way it would be difficult to hook up the
steering column.  Just thought someone should point that out.

I was at Sears auto recently and was surprised to see they sell Yokohamas, 
the favored replacement.  I didn't ask if they had my size, since I already 
have the Yokos.  But I was surprised.  You can also get them through the 
internet.  I did, and so have others.  I think it's www.tirerack.com.  Prices 
were decent, too.
