Dave, I use Krylon simi flat and hold the spray pattern back further. That 
will create the surface with a little texture.

<< Hi,
     I am going to bring my louver into a body shop to have it painted this 
 week.  What type of paint should I have them paint it with?  I have to use 5 
 bottles of tire shine just to keep it black right now;)  I have found that 
 most bumper paints just begin to fade after a few seasons of use.  Has 
anyone 
 used a paint that really works great?  At Memphis I saw a louver with a 
 lightly textured paint that really looked nice.
 
 Thanks
 
 Dave

Subject: Re: refabricate tosion bars

Andy and group. Last year when this came up I checked with the factory that 
made them for Grummond. There was one person there that remembered the 
department that made them and he knew some of the people that actually made 
them. I put out the request that if I could get enough people to put down a 
deposit on the bars I would see about getting them made. I only got 4 takers. 
I was thinking about having 50 made as one last attempt. Can't do it with 
only 4 takers. 
Vendors like myself don't mind investing in parts if the group or Delorean 
owners will support the efforts. But to many times folks would rather find it 
local and pay the same price or higher or cheaper instead of the vendors that 
are trying to support the cars. If the group wants to open this back up I 
would go at it again, but who wants to shell out $350.00 to hold, only if and 
when it happens.

P.S. I have already looked into replacement door openers.


<< I agree with Marc on all of this.  Torsion bar failure is not a widespread 
 problem and no one is going to worry about this kind of silly stuff (my 
 apologies to Paul) for decades, when it actually IS a problem.  And as far 
as 
 non-owners that are all worked up over this parts availability stuff - 
 doesn't it show something when the actual owners are not concerned?  i think 
 it's kinda funny how the recent additions to the list seem to be rallying 
 everyone to make sure there are parts available for future owners - you 
don't 
 need to worry about it! there will be parts!  we really need to quit crying 
 over quarter panel dies, torsion bars, etc....  cars are being parted out 
all 
 the time and there's nothing to worry about.....................
 
 just ask the list WHEN THE TIME COMES!  that's what i have learned. no part 
 is inaccessible.  if you have the $$$, that is.

Subject: Re: Long Island, NY DMC Owners

Thats Pretty funny because Before I became a Delorean Owner here on 
Long island I never saw any DeLoreans, but after I got mine they 
seemed to pop up everywhere. I even saw one park in someones driveway 
right next to a whte bricklin (about 5 min from my house at the time 
in syosset). I also came upon 2 other cars right in my area but could 
NEVER find the owners to talk to (just my luck). I even parked right 
next to one at the library one time waiting for the owner to come 
back, but after 2 hours I left. now I moved out to the hamptons and 
since I have seen 2 DeLoreans That I know live around here, but my 
luck every time I see the cars, There either parked for hours or just 
leaving. the piont of my story Is I too would like to get to know 
some other DeLorean Owners Here on LI, but have not been able to 
strike up not one conversation with a current DMC owner in the 3 
years I have owned my car.

List,

    I was visiting the Lamington Farm estate last year with my old 1981 DMC. 
I was given a nice tour of the grounds and the house. When I was there John 
DeLoreans dogs, Alfredo & Lucy were abandoned there. Where they still there?
    In addition, the grounds manager let me go thru some of the DeLorean 
memorabilia & tax records that were left there in the basement of the house. 
Did you have an opportunity to see them?

Best Wishes,
Michael Pack

I have some too, though not as big a selection.  I'll have to dig them out 
and see if they're totally different, or just a smaller assortment of what 
you have.  I'm guessing mine are an earlier, simpler versiion.

Subject: Torsion bar removal and fitting

OK so heres a question



If I need to remove a torsion bar from a car what is the easiest way to do
so i.e. relieve the tension.



And then what is the process to refit i.e. how much turning does the bar
need once in place.



The more detail the better



Cheers



Paul

Subject: annoying misfire

Hi all,

I am still having an annoying misfire, I am pretty sure it down to an 
injector that is passed it's sell by date, as it is not spraying very 
nicely. 

To my knowledge the spray pattern on a mechanical injection system is 
more crucial than on an EFI system because the valves are not always 
open at the point of injection.

I am fairly sure the misfire is fuel related for the following 
reasons:

1) My timing light suggests that all plugs are sparking
2) All plugs are less then 8 months old. 
3) 2 of the injectors are new, 4 are 2nd user but appeared to be 
clean and ok when 1st installed approx. 10 months ago, and the engine 
has run fine until recently.
4) All of my HT leads are new as well as the cap and rotor arm.

Anyway my question is really why are the injectors getting blocked?, 
have I just been unlucky?
I have a new fuel pump, clean tank, and a filter on the fuel pickup 
and had the main fuel filter change about 10 months ago.

Any ideas?


James RG
