Brent has a very nice car, but I think you misunderstand what his louvers are.

they look to be the standard fiberglass louvers with stainless glued on to it.  This is not the complete stainless louver that the outfit in Europe is selling.

Subject: Re: Bill's melted catalytic converter


I've had my cold start valve wired to my full throttle enrichment switch
ever since I ran a turbo charger which has since been removed. It does dump
a considerable amount of fuel ( enough to kill a idling engine if the switch
is activated ) but the distribution is uneven and all cylinders don't get
the same mix of fuel. I really haven't noticed any performance gain with the
exception of taking an extra gallon of fuel at fill ups when running with
other Deloreans. The only reason I did this with the turbo was an attempt to
cool the combustion temperature and it really didn't help that much. Also,
it's a bad idea if you're still using a catalytic converter as the extra
fuel will cause high temps in the converter. I really need to restore the
cold start circuit to it's original configuration now that I don't have a
turbo and I'd advise you not to waste the time trying it.

James,

      Ever think to see if they did that to a left door also?  Would be great 
if they did, then you could use the fiberglass shell you have and that frame 
to make the true "last" delorean and throw those doors on it.

Subject: Delorean for Sale


I think I have to sell my Delorean in order to pay for my wedding that is in March.  So let me put this out there and see if there are any takers.  
She is a 1981 with grey interior VIN 5043 with 108000 miles.  I have tried my best to give her a good home.  I have replaced numerous parts on her.  You can check out my website http://filebox.vt.edu/users/wmack to see what I have done to her.  I currently attend school at Virginia Tech, so if anyone wants to come by and see her, please email me.  I am asking $12000 right now.

Thanks 
   Willie Mack

Scott,

  Not only is this EXTREMELY dangerous, but this is illegal in many states.
I'm sure the reasons why, are obvious.

I tried playing my Discman portable CD player using the cassette adaptor.
It sounded terrible.  I ended up using the Discman and headphones.  The
headphones were the way to go.

Subject: Hello all new owner of VIN 0798

Sorry to not mention it sooner but now as its official I thought I 
should introduce myself. My Name is Matthew Stits and I am the proud 
new owner of Vin 0789 after nearly two and half years of searching, 
studying and getting help from my good buddy Robert R. also known 
as "The Real DMC Vegas" around here. So finally after looking
at 
around six cars in all I have found that one diamond of a car for me, 
any way I am here in Vegas waiting for Sema and to see a few other 
delorean owners. Anyway nice to see you all and if your ever in Vegas 
feel free to drop by or give me an email _at_dml_ stits (at) lvcm.com.

Sincerely, Matthew M. Stits

NOS replacements for the rear windscreen top trim piece are no longer 
available, though somebody might sell one used.  They typically crack for no 
apparent reason. 

There are several muffler brackets, and at least one is prone to failure. 
Newer style ones are available to correct this.  Don't know if this applies 
to all of them, or just one.  I replaced all mine when I replaced the muffler 
shield.

I have the Delorean Sunstar model. One of the doors does not stay up
and I need to adjust it. There are some instruction on Sinstar's
website (88-mph.com) but I've not been able to access the site. Can
someone email me the instructions?
Thanks

Shannon, please be careful.  There is tremendous
energy stored in those SPRINGS.  (Could be like a half
an inch-pound.)  One slip of the tweezers and you
could risk cracking the rear window (or breaking a
nail).  I'd recommend taking it to an authorized
Delorean Model Service Center.

Just having fun.  ; )

I think you are asking too much.  I live in  MD, and would love to add 
a manual DeLorean to my collection, but 12,000 for the condition it is 
in is too steep.

Subject: Re: Steering wheel play

I think I already know the answer to this but I thought I would throw 
it out there...My steering rack was replaced with a rebuild from 
Grady and it steers perfectly. The only problem I have is the 
steering column itself moves. The culprit is that little black 
bushing that goes in the hole where the column exits the car....

I know the solution is a $20 part but I hear horror stories of 
pulling the sterring wheel and messing it up or not getting the wheel 
back in correctly....Has anyone thought of a way to make a 2 piece 
bushing or some other clever way to put a new bushing in without 
removing the column???

I think if this could be done you would have a alot of happy D owners 
with great steering....

thanks

Aha!  A little light on the subject!  Thank you.  I looked into this a while
back and was told that they are out there, but most are black powder coated.
Why someone would do that is beyond me.  What I was looking for at the time
was the possibility of the brushed SS look over the whole car.  Does gluing
the SS over the existing louvers make them lighter than solid SS?  Is it
done well?  Much thanks to Brent and Marc for the enlightenment.

Subject: A few quick questions

My new "to me" DeLorean is a 1981 auto which seems perfect in nearly 
all its ways but I do have a few questions about two minor issues. 
First off the car did sit for most of its time garaged only to be 
driven once a week _at_dml_ best so I believe this may be an issue that goes 
away with time but the car shakes a bit at idle and high 
speeds "engine mounts I bet." The second issue is the mechanical 
aspect of my trans shifter.... in short I can shift from park to 
drive and back to reverse with out taping the break. It shifts fine 
and I can fix anything electrical "in short no issue there trust me."
it just kinda scary to think that I could be driving hit the shifter 
with my hand and have it go to neutral or worse reverse.
