Sure do like most owners do who have no gas flap.  Open the hood when filling 
your tank.  This way you will also be sure not to spill gas down your hood.

Bill Schafer has a problem with his driver's side door:

Things like this have happened to me many times, Bill.  I got a good deal on my
DeLorean because the previous owner was frustrated with the driver's door, and he
had gotten a good deal on the car for the same reason.  My very early car was
made without door guides, and so the latches inside the door seldom lined up
correctly and became badly dameged over the years.

After years of working on this problem, I am very familiar with the inside of the
door mechanism.

The good news is that your late VIN car should have door guides already.

The bad news is that you do not yet have enough information to diagnose this
problem.

When you lock/unlock the door, can you hear a click from both latches?  When the
door is unlocked and you pull up on the handle, can you hear a different click
from both latches?

One possibility is that the door is wedged closed.  This can happen if someone
pushes the door in such a way that it torques clockwise or counterclockwise as it
closes, with one latch reaching the level of its post before the other latch has
reached its door guide.

If this is the case, you may have one latch closed normally and the other
(probably forward) wedged shut.  You might be able to open the door by pulling up
on the inside handle while punching or kicking the forward part of the door.  At
the same time you should have someone on the outside pulling up on the bottom
edge of the door.  That person should wear gloves.

Try this and let us know what happens.  If it works, please note the condition of
your latches and mention it on the DML.

Subject: Re: Still locked out

If you previously had you factory door lock powered up you may have a
partially burnt out lock solenoid that is preventing the lock from
releasing. You will have to remove both door panels to access the lock
module. Remove the solenoid and the door should unlock.

This is the reason that we routinely disconnect power to the lock module
whenever we prep a car for service.

Dear Bill,

    My late Nov. 81 vin 6058 had the same problem once. The fault was the 
cable that attaches to the interior door latch. Try pushing the latch down 
while unlocking the door. If this doesn't work you will have to gently take 
off the upper door trim. With the trim off, lift the handle and watch how the 
cable sticks. With your fingers or a pair of needle nose pliers, lift the 
interior latch and pull of the cable...this should release the door IF this 
is the problem.

Subject: Re: Dimmer Switch, continued

The number at the end (1176) is a date code.  So, this switch was made
in 1976, before the DeLorean was made!

Not that this matters...

However, I have received some information from TRW/Lucas with drawings
of the current switches they offer.  They still make a switch that
physically looks the same as the DMC dimmer, but the electrical
specifications are a bit different.  I expect the newer dimmer would
work in the DMC application in a acceptable manor.  The biggest
difference I can see is that the DMC version has a point where the
maximum resistance is infinity (The circuit is open).  The new switch
Lucas has does not do this, so the result may be that you can never turn
the dashboard lights completely off with the dimmer.

As far as the part Dave found, there may be a similar difference here...
Where, the switch will work in the DMC application, but it is not quite
the same as the original.

Dave-  Have you measured the "jag" part with a meter??  What is the
maximum and minimum resistance?  What does the taper look like?  BTW,
thanks for the information and pictures you have supplied so far!

If there is so much interest in this part, why are there only 15 votes
on the survey??  
http://www.egroups.com/surveys/dmcnews?id=190586

Also: I installed my "repaired" dimmer this weekend, it works great!

Ken Koncelik warned about the many speed traps in Ohio.  On Interstate 71 alone
he mentioned:

The last warning is very good, but the name of the city is not Lyndhurst, it is
Linndale.  Linndale is just outside Cleveland, and that speed trap runs almost
around the clock.

Lyndhurst is another suburb on the other side of town.  You should probably be
careful there, too.  Take it from an Ohioan who drives conservatively but still
gets ticketed for minor speed violations.

Hey group.

Just bought www.DeLoreanMotorCompany.co.uk

Its not running yet, but it will be soon. The site will be designed 
around the old DMC style (blacks and slivers).
It'll have a a big section devoted to the prototype and pre 
production cars too. It's kinda like what the corporate website

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, but be kind,

I am the orig. owner of VIN 6924. The "Silver Bullet" has taken me to 3 DOA 
Expos, as well as on various long & short road trips. The ONLY problem to 
ever develope on a trip was on I-70 thru Kansas to Snow Mass.  A strange 
sound from the engine comp. eminated from a broken alt. bracket bouncing on 
the fins. Parts were saved, it was welded snugly upon my return home. 
Presto! No problem!     I must say, I have seen MANY more OTHER cars 
sick/dead on the shoulder during many road trips, than DeLoreans. (OK, think 
about that a moment)   Any other "sicknesses" were ordinary "bugs" common to 
ordinary cars & treated back to health at or near home.     Pray tell, if 
there was an Antiques Mailing List, would the problems shared on Antique 
cars frighten away prospective purchasers?  I daresay NOT!   Is my '38 Buick 
more reliable than my DMC?  Depends on the day. Can this comparison splash 
onto ANY other older vs. newer car? I would wager so.      Any individual 
ordinary car can be a lemon, but overall, the DMC is as reliable as the 
owner desires. (As can be said of ANY antique vehicle)  If this prospect is 
scarey, get a bike! (Oops, they can get sick, too---walk.)         Drive

unbelievable customer service in diagnosing the
trouble.

He took me threw the entire fuel system and alittle
into the electrical system.  What at first i believed

wires to the impulse coil.. cleaning the contacts and
firmly reattaching them.. Once i did this.. BOOOM!
SHEEE LIVVVVEEess... quite a feeling.. i felt like

After having my D gone over pretty well my DMC joe i
have a few spare parts i replaced for some reason or
another.  If anyone is intrested in these lemme know.

left rear lens -yellow has faded otherwise good
condition

-original ashtray -like new

passenger kneepad, goodoverall conditon, no rips -grey

binacle-  DESTROYED, this is more or less a peice of
trash.  just wondering if anyone wants it before i
throw it away.  Basicly its there.. just the top has 
MAJOR SUNBURN..its cracked and faded. -was grey,
pretty brown now :)

Hood - I have a late 82 hood.. totally flat no
grooves, no flap.  the hood is in excellent conditon,
no dents.  There is a minor dime size imperfection
that can be seen at some angles that i can only assume
came from the factory. Its not a ding or stratch. 
there is VERY minor x-pattern in the hood which again
can only been seen at certain angles or in the right
temperature... otherwise its not there.

Windsheild.  the windshield i own has no cracks but it
does have scratches in the glasss... in certain areas
it looks as if someone took sandpaper to it, there are
3 areas on the glass about 4-5 inches long with
scratches. depending on the response, i might be
parting with most of the other glass sections of the
car, they all seem to have some scratches on them.

If intrested drop me a direct email.. thought i would
mention it here before ebay or the likes.

Subject: DMC Car Alarm - ENFORCER 600


I think I have found a nice alarm for the DeLorean when it comes to 
installation without having to make permanent changes to the car.

Please - if anyone has installed ENFORCER 600 (U.S.-made alarm) please 
e-mail me privately. I'd like to discuss something with you regarding this 
alarm.

Sincerely
Stian Birkeland

Subject: RE: New tachometer, still nothing

Hi Dave....

I was having problems with my gages a while back.  The needles would
shake when I turned on the power.  I later found that I needed to repair
some of the ground wiring.  I know that this is a little different from
your problem, but I thought I would offer the advice anyway. You might
want to check to make sure that the tach is getting the correct amount
of current, and that the polarity is correct.  I would also check the
fuses to make sure that the current one is in place.

Hope this helps.  If you end up finding a solution, please let me know.

Thanks!

Dave

Hello again list,
    maybe I didnt explain my problem good enough.  The tach never moves.

when you drive the car it stays at 9000 RPMS even if its in idle.  when
I put 
in the new tach and I received no movement from it at all.  what could
this 
be?  I know it stays at wherever the its at when the car turns off.  any

ideas?

thanks

dave

Subject: Re: Painting a DeLorean

From what I've heard, painting a D takes alot of work & preperation. 
But since you want you car to be differant and you're willing to put 
the effort into it. Why not consider polishing the stainless to a 
mirror finish? I would imagine that your car would be even harder to 
keep clean then, but it would be original!
Just a thought...

Since I don't have a gas flap, I've never cut my knuckles on one. But 
that fiberglass can slice pretty good if you ever pull the jack & 
tool kit out!

Subject: Re: Still locked out

Bill,
Is your door stuck or your lock stuck? Is the door fully closed or only
partially latched? If your door or latch pins are not adjusted properly this
can jamb the door. If your lock is not working it may be a loose linkage
wire inside the door. You will need to remove the door Trim Pad which is
held in place with fir trees to access the linkage. (Thats the upholstered
part above the arm rest on the door).

Subject: Re: Stainless Steel Letters.

Me again, 

Does anyone know where i can find ( in the U.S. ) the Stainless Steel  
Delorean letters  that go on the rear bumber?    I only found one site, that 
had them, but 
they were out of the U.S.

Also, I notice many people on the DML who sign with their name and Vin #.  Any
significance on signing with your Vin #?

Thanks Again
Dave
