Uhh...before you take a whack at the rotor I would loosely tighten a lug nut 
or 2 onto the studs so that the rotor won't fall off.

Subject: Re: CUSTOM RIMS

A seen a number of Delorean's with those wheels on them. I've 
never actually asked the owenrs there impressions but the fact 
that they still have them on the car much imply they are at least 
somewhat happpy otherwise they would switched back.

I beleive one of the Deloreans for sale on ebay or one that 
maybe just closed was selling with these wheels as well as the 
OEM wheels as back-up.

Having 15/16's is a WORLD of difference over the stock 14/15's.   Lower
profile, wider tires makes the car feel and handle like it should.

I don't believe William sells wheels anymore.

I bought the ones you see on his car in the ad when he was selling his
car.   My car is still available for sale, perhaps its my car you are
referring to.

Subject: Re: Re: CUSTOM RIMS

It is interesting to note that one of the largest and
most respected aftermarket rim manufacturers (Enkei)
says if you need "spacers/adapters" for a particular
wheel to fit your car, don't buy that wheel, even if
it is theirs!

I realize that part of the reason for such a
disclaimer  is to cover their a-- in the event of a
failure and subsequent lawsuit, but I also believe
that it is a word of advice that one should consider
seriously before going the aftermarket rim route.

Just my 2˘.

From: wmack <wmack_at_dml_vt.edu>
Subject: Door stuck and won't open

My drivers side door will not open.  The rear latch has released and the door 
has cleared the striker pin.  However, the front latch has no released.  I 
have taken the interior apart and tried to manually release the latch, but no 
success.  I have taken the lower side trim off and tried to open the latch 
from underneath, but that didn't work either.  
I am puzzled as to what to do now?  I do not know how to open the door, other 
than to break the latch and buy a new one.
Any ideas?

Thanks

From: "Dave Sontos" <dsontos_at_dml_sybercom.net>
Subject: (Re:) Radiator Cooling Fan Rewire

Using the procedure from Darryl Tinnerstet I finally got rid of my three wire jumper in the fan fail module. Actually its a good thing too because one of the wires was turning brown on one end.

The only problems I had were that I couldn't find the new relay female crimp terminals for the two short jumpers you need to make and finding the additional five pin relay to go in the fan fail module socket. I ended up sabotaging the hot start relay socket terminals and after going to three different auto parts stores finally found a five pin relay.

My suggestion to anyone thinking of attempting this modification is to get the parts from Darryl or one of the other DeLorean suppliers FIRST.

I am very happy with the change and feel a lot more comfortable having the two relays in there instead of that damn jumper thing.

Subject: How do you remove a stripped out lug nut

Has anybody ever had a lug nut stripped out? The million dollar 
question is how to remove it? I've been messing around with it for a 
few 
hours and have had no luck. Can you cut it off with a torch or some 
how drill it out? If anybody has a idea I would appreciate it very 
much. Thank You
