Even with the exact same quality of book price could vary quite a lot 
depending on the market at the time. $200 wouldn't be aout of line. 

Typically I see copies go for $150. I got mine for $75 though and the 
book doesnt even look to have been touch. The spine was perfect, you 
pages bent, no scuffs, no damage what so ever to the croners. However 
mine didn't come with the dust jacket. $75 is cheap IMO for a perfect 
example with no jacket. If it even overpacked by 4 times for safety.

Paul - The box you have found is the lambda counter.  This counter
represents percent of 30,000 miles.  When the percentage reaches
100, the counter turns on the lambda light on the dash indicating
that the oxygen sensor should be replaced.  The reason the wires
are clipped is because your previous owner didn't know about or
didn't know how to reset the counter.

Hi all

Whilst moving on with the restoration of my car. the speedo comes next,
Instead of a straight cable to the wheels , half way is yellow/White box
showing % of life used on a counter. What exactly is it and is it really
needed as the wires leading out are snapped and will take some real work to
fix ( I Can do this though).

Does anyone know if this is available yet?  I didn't see anything on 
their site saying it wasn't.

DMLers,

Can anyone give me a code ref. for the light grey paint colour of the
DeLorean wheels. I want to powder paint an extra set I have.

Thanks,         IAN

It was a MIRROR-switch from a Saab 900 that would just about fit 
and could be rewired to work on a DeLorean. Hank Eskin 
discovered this and did this conversion, have a look at message
17131, or on the web: http://www.eskin.net/saabswitch.html

The WINDOW-switches allmost matched those of a Renault Clio (see 
message 6918). There used to be a picture in the Files-area, but it 
seems to have been removed...

Over two years ago (message 1392) someone mentioned a LIT set of 
switches from a 1983 Renault Fuego, but I haven't been able to find a 
decent picture of those switches...

I read somewhere that DMC Houston is working on reproduction switches 
and I think John Hervey (SpecialTauto.com) sells rebuilds.

That's all I could find in about 5 minutes,
Good luck!

I just bought Stainless Steel Illusion from Amazon Z-shops for
$170.00.  The book is in good shape, but the pages have yellowed
a bit. Was pleased with content, understand now why everyone says
it is a must have book.

Subject: DMCNews Website Status

I'm aware that the DMCNews.com website has been off-line
quite a bit lately. It is due to server issues with the
"Code Red" virus. (This virus only attacks webservers, not
your PC). Here is the servers's latest network status:

8/4/2001   3:29:00 PM
Code Red Update
Due to the code red worm, we have been forced to
block the IP ranges of networks with the highest number of
infected machines. We will lift these blocks as soon a
possible. We have technicians working 24 hours on this
issue. Thank you very much for your patience during this
situation.
