   Dirk from DeLorean Steel Products is a very nice guy who I'm sure 
would be happy to help you with the letters. He can be contacted at 

I have a full set of Stainless Steel lettering on my D. It looks VERY 

One thing to keep in mind: the proper glue is essential. The letters 
tend to fall off if not glued well. He recommends "the atomic glue 
from LOCTIDE (the green one !!)". I used an epoxy, and they aren't 
going anywhere. Make sure you lightly sandpaper the area where the 
letters are to be placed for best adhesion.

There is a product that DuPont (at least used to) sell that is a peel and
stick gooey gray substance held together between pieces of plastic.  The
installer just peels off one side and sticks the sheet to any clean surface
in the car.  One of my old GM cars had it in the trunk over the wheel wells.
With age and heat some of the stuff would liquefy and run.

A DuPont representative said that the automotive paint division sold it, and
it was rather expensive for what it was.  He told me of a demonstration that
they would do by sticking a 1" square piece of the stuff to the bottom of a
gallon paint can.  He said that the sound deadening properties  were great.
It is useful to stick inside of doors between the inner sheet metal and the
impact beam since this is a difficult area to get a good coat of rubberized
undercoat applied without dripping it everywhere.

Before the moderator kills this thread, I'll tell you of another
soundproofing job I did to a stainless steel sink.  Hey!  It's soundproofing
stainless, so it applies to this list, don't it?  I used a can of that
expanding foam insulation sold at home improvement stores.  I applied a
series of 1/2" thick beads of the stuff to all the under surfaces of the
sink.  As it hardened, it made a uniform 3/4" thick layer of foam
insulation.  Before I did this, the sound of water resonating on the bottom
of the sink would drive me nuts.  Afterwards, the sink was very quiet and
kept the water nice and warm to do the dishes.  I've thought about putting
this stuff inside of cars, but it would be very messy unless you had a lot
of room to work.  In fact, I'm considering applying this stuff to the inside
roof of my Delorean while I'm replacing the headliner.  It would sound proof
and also keep the car cooler -- a big plus in Florida.

Subject: Gas cap replacement

I replaced my locking gas cap with a Stant model # 11623

I got tired of bending up my ignition key trying to unlock my old one, and I
didn't see any reason for locking the thing since I don't have a hood flap.
I called DMC Joe, and he suggested the one I bought.  It's not OEM, but I
think it looks better.  It's wide low-profile with a chrome finish.  It
looks like it belongs on a 1930/31 Model A Ford, but fits great on my
Delorean.  There were other models that Pep Boys had on the shelf that
looked like they would have worked also, but this one was the best looking
and was recommended by Joe.

I don't like labels, so I removed the sticker in the center that had the
standard warnings.  It makes the car look better while the trunk is open.
