Subject: New eBay item

Hi group.

Just letting you know that I'm selling my DeLo front fascia and 
assorted gubbins (lights, et al) on eBay (sorry for the plug). If 
anyone wants a cool DeLorean display, can't ask for better than 
that. I've also got diagrams on how to convert the peice to a BTTF 
DeLo, should anyone want them.

Also, does anyone have any pictures of the said Ital badge for the 
car? I like the sound of that

Thanks group!


VIN....... um, no.

John and Group. Your welcome, just wish we would have had more time to Fix 
the problem. That's what's nice about owning a De Lorean, people coming 
together to help one another. We may have different paths in getting there, 
but our goal is the same. I also enjoyed working with P.J. Grady side by side 
and swapping Ideas. 
Let's do it again.

Subject: Re: vin plate

To my knowledge, the number plate on the frames never match the VIN plates
on the dash and door opening (although they seem to be close on many cars).
Perhaps they meant them to match at one time, but in the end, none of the
cars were assembled that way.  Also as far as I know, there is no record
that keeps track of what frame number was used on which cars.  Unless anyone
can say otherwise, it is safe to assume that the number on your frame is
completely arbitrary and has no relevance.

Subject: Re: badge

The badge talked about here is DeLorean specific. It says styled in Italy
for DMC by Ital Design. I wouldn't think the Masterati club would be selling
this. It's stainless with black lettering and the DMC is in the original
font the company used for their logo. I bought mine several years ago from
the DeLorean Motor Center. I believe the old defunct Delorean Club of
America had them made at some point.  Don Steger bought much of the
remaining items that club had when they folded. This was a number of years
ago so I have no idea what, if any, of these things Don still has in his

Subject: Rear Rotor measurement help ...anyone?

Could someone please measure the diameter, circumference and total height of
their rear rotors?  There isn't another D close by to me to take a simple
look - so I'd appreciate the help.

I need to change my rear rotors this week and have a hunch mine have been
replaced with something other than original parts.
