Subject: FYI-Painted Deloreans

Recently, there was a thread about painted Deloreans.

I found Service Bulletin (ST-02-2/82) that deals with painting the Stainless
Steel Body panels.

This bulletin goes into great detail on how to paint the panels.

What was really interesting is that it states that 3 Deloreans were test
painted by the Delorean Motor Company and were very attractive.

Maybe these three cars did get sold to the public, who knows.

Just a little fuel for the fire.

Central locking is another name for power locks. It simply means that all
doors can be locked from the drivers door.

You can replace the original keys with Volvo blanks from most locksmiths or 
hardware stores. If you want the thick plastic coated dealer type keys you 
can go to any Volve dealership in the parts department. That's what worked 
for me.

Subject: The dream begins!

Group,

      Well group, I FINALLY BOUGHT A DELOREAN!!!!!!!!! Can you read into my 
excitement. I will now be asking your help in maintaining the car. First 
post, first problem. What is the color code for the fascias? Mine are 
painted black...it looks ok, but the grey looks better. What will it cost to 
have this done? Also, anything to check for right after you buy the car? 
Since it runs and drives fine, what should I do to ensure it will stay this 
way for a while? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am happy that the dream of owning one has finally, after 13 years turned 
into a reality! Good luck to all those still searching. By the way, if 
anyone is looking, I know of a few DeLoreans for sale for $9,000. This seems 
to be what most people can afford. All run and drive well and are in good 
shape. e-mail me privately for more info. Thanks!

Best Wishes,
Sean Spurlock

Subject: Getting to Cleveland

This reminds me that I've been evaluating all of my options for getting to
the Cleveland show.  Driving from Texas is 20+ hours each way.  I looked
into trains but it takes just as long, and the "Auto Train" only runs
between DC and Orlando.

Since it's difficult for me and the S.O. to arrange that much time off and
take such a long drive, I am currently considering flying and having the car
shipped.  It would be about $600-$700 for airfare (for two) and about the
same for the car shipment (one way).

It seems expensive, but it's saving me mucho driving, an overnights stay
halfway, $200 in fuel, untold wear-and-tear AND any possibility of accident
or traffic violation.  I've gone to auto events without my car before, it's
very lonely.  :-(

So am I nuts?

Well if you think being part of the largest DeLorean event possibly ever is 
nuts then you are in good company. The only way to get 100 cars here is if 
everyone makes their best effort to get there cars here.  Let me know who 
your shipper is because I may be taking (shipping)   my car to Vegas after 
Cleveland.

Gus, I have been to Ireland, Cincinatti and Snowmass CO without my Delorean and had a
great time at all of them.  Infact, this summer, my wife will probably fly to Cleaveland
while my son and I drive.  Go to the show with or without your car.

Subject: DeLorean Car Show UPDATE PLEASE READ

Hi
time is getting closer and I have been asked to post times for some of the 
events. One of the hard things to do is to plan when you are not sure how 
many people are going to come.  Well I have kinda figured that out but poor 
Mike has been overwhelmed by the number of people going on the ralleys. 
I have asked Mike to try to post the times within a week or two and announce 
where he is going to end up Thursday night.  
Mike and the DCO will be heading up both Ralleys so if you have questions 
please direct them the him.  This is one part of the event I have no idea 
whats up and plan to be surprised like all of you.  He has put a lot of time 
and taping into this event and it is no charge.

As far as the rest of the show I had to make some last minute changes with 
John Coming and as soon as I get the travel plans for him finished I will 
announce what he will be doing and where and when.  I will also set the 
schedule.

The Hotel if it is not already will be full in a day or so.  If you cannot 
get a room at the Holiday Inn the go to the Hampton at 1-800Hampton ask for 
the Downtown Cleveland one
It is off of e-9th st only a minute walk from the Holiday.
If that fills I will post another hotel but I have not found one as of this 
posting.

Sorry for the long letter but there is a lot.

PARKING

I have secured the parking in three seperate areas.
especially if you have a trailor you need to read this.

The Hotel Parking is $10.00 per night with in and out privelages but you will 
be parking with all the other cars.  It is guarded and it is 6 levels like 
most parking garages.

IF YOU HAVE A TRAILER or MOTORHOME DON"T EVEN TRY THE HOLIDAY INN
you will not be able to manuver around the front of the hotel.  
Parking for you is behind the Science Center at the PORT AUTHORITY LOT.  
This is a patrolled parking lot used by the military, Stadium Security and 
the Cleveland POILICE.  When you enter you will be charged $5.00 per day with 
in and out privelages.  There is 24 hour access.  NOTE: NO CARS W/O Trailers 
period.

I strongly suggest that the Science Center Garage be used. It is easy in and 
out and we will have the second floor to ourselves.  A special place will be 
made available for our DeLoreans to ensure security.  The cost is $5.00 per 
day.  Tickets may be purchased for the weekend with in and out privelages.  

The garage is open from 7:00 am until 11:30 PM Thursday and 12:30PM Friday 
and Saturday with in out privelages during these times.  FOR MAXIMUM SECURITY
the garage WILL BE LOCKED between the close and open.  NO ONE will be allowed 
in and it will be patrolled by Science Center Security.

This is a two minute walk from the Hotel.

I will post the Parking Contracts on my web site shortly and I will be 
providing maps probably in your mailer packets that I will be sending out 
around the end of MAY.

Thank you for putting up with this long letter.

Subject: Re: The dream begins!

Sean,
Having just had my front fascia repainted the color code is DBC 33584, the 
old code is DAU 33584. Before calling your local auto paint store call PPG at 
440-572-6100. They can give you the nearest store that has this paint. You 
might want to check the past DML issues to get more details on what else you 
will need. I checked with some of the 4 big Delorean repair places one quoted 
me a price of $280.00 to do the job. I found a local painter that did mine 
for $120.00 and I supplied the paint. Check around and ask to see other autos 
that they have done, that will give you an idea if you want to use that shop. 
Again I only had my front fascia repainted. Good luck with your new ride and 
now you know what living the dream is all about!

The first thing I always do when I buy any car, is change the engine oil and
filter (and on other less well made cars with rubber bands for timing belts
..change that)  I once had a Peugeot car who's timing belt snapped..cost of
repair? 1,300! ( $2000!)...Not a problem with our DeLoreans of course
though.

Subject: New nose Bra

I have one of the old nose Bras, and although they look great on the car
when it is still, they vibrate way too much when you are going past 50mph,
and this vibration 	SCUFFS THE STAINLESS STEEL!!  I assume everyone else
with this bra has the same problem, since no one responded wth solutions,
Also... 

  If you've

Mine has bug flaps (triangular prisims) sticking up on both sides of the
front of the car.
