Do you guys get Auto Glym products in any specialist shops?

http://www.autoglym.com

If  you need a cleaner or care product for your car, Auto Glym make the 
one you need.

You mean 9 DeLoreans?
Remember to have 3 of each model year, 81, 82 and 83 ;)

1. Any leather care product should work.  Lexol seems to be the most popular, but others have been discussed on the list- check the archives.

2. Someone probably did not install your center vents correctly at some point.  Remove the center vents and reinstall them correctly.  To do this you need to pop the flow control wheel and moveable vent out of the plastic frame (Be careful not to loose the plastic "+" part or the O-ring).  Then reinstall the frame in to the dashboard with the 2 plastic hoses, making sure the hoses are attached to both sides properly by working it though the front.  After the frame is installed, snap the vent and wheel back in.  

3. Coolant leaks should not be ignored.  Pressure test the system and find it.  If you need to replace the radiator, it is not the worst thing in the world.  I found it very easy to do with the spoiler, grille, and shroud removed (no need to drop the anti-sway bar).
