Subject: DeLorean/Need for Speed

Does anyone have the info that was on here a while back, where someone from
Russia had an addition to the Need For Speed program where he added the
DeLorean to the stable of cars.  I am not sure which version it was either.
I have NFS III but would get a later if need be.  I am not into gaming, but
grandson (12) would love to have it on my computer.

Subject: Re: Need used manual LH transmission bracket, please!

Thank you to everyone who responded to me.  I finally purchased one 
from Walter Coe.  (Sorry I lost track of email and ended up sending 
payment late.) :(  I want to point out that I discovered as part of 
this that this part seems to have a HIGH FAILURE rate.  This 
concerns me greatly.  I examined both the LH and RH brackets.  The 
LH bracket is of thinner metal than the RH one which may be why it 
breaks.  They all may be breaking in the same place at first (near 
the middle hole where the metal is just 1/2" wide).  One person 
mentioned that it might be caused by too much play in the rubber 
frame mount, and I found extra play in mine so replaced it.  I am 
considering having a new stronger bracket fabricated (if it's not 
too expensive) since with the extra power I have I'm worried this 
new replacement will eventually break as well.  CHECK YOUR MANUAL 
FRONT LH TRANSMISSION MOUNTS very carefully because there can easily 
be a small crack that is not easy to see!

Subject: re:headlinings

When I got my D the headlinings were in a pretty bad state, torn and 
discoloured, so I decided to completely recover them myself.

I found a classic car material supplier in the UK and they supplied me 
with material with a foam backing that is almost an exact match for the 
original material.

I then removed the original material and used these as templates for 
cutting new pieces. Removing the original foam was a bit of a job as 
its difficult not to damage the 'card' backing. But with a lot of time 
and the use of a little white spirit and an old toothbrush I managed to 
remove it all.

It was then simply a case of glueing the new material in place. I was 
told by the people who supplied the material that spray glue isn't 
usually strong enough for headliners but they supplied me with a tin of 
liquid glue that was suitable.

The most difficult panels to cover, without wrinkling the material, are 
the two that go in the doors but with a bit of patience this isn't a 
problem.

Hope this helps.

Subject: "Chirping" sound

I've had an annoying "chirping" sound coming from (I think) one of my wheels for awhile now, one of the rear ones I believe.  It only develops after driving for awhile but it goes away when I break.  Any idea on what this could be?  A bearing?  Something wrong with my breaks?

Thanks for any help,

Richard

Subject: Please help

I have just done a really dumb thing, and need some serious suggestion of help before I permanently injure myself.

Whilst sorting my brake system with new pads I had replaced the front and removed the rear drivers side. I was the distracted by a visitor for a few minutes. The next thing I did, don't ask me why, I got in the car an put my foot on the brake pedal to feel the travel.
yep the rear pistons closed right up to the disc. And now I can't get them back in to put in the new pads.

I have tried absolutely every thing I can think of and they seem to be solid stuck.

Can they come out too far and not go back in??  Is there an easy way to get them back in,  Or is it a case of taking the whole damn calliper off, if so how do I do that??

Yours hanging

Subject: Hail Damage

Hello everyone,
   My new DeLorean has some hail damage across the hood and on
top of the doors and t-panel. Luckily all the dents are a small
diameter, and are extremely shallow. I was wondering what the
preferred method of removing the dents was, and if someone could
give me some detailed intructions on how to remove them. If this
isn't something that my father and I should tackle, does anyone
know who in NC I can take the car to? Please feel free to email
me privately. Thanks in advance-

Louie Golden

Subject: Re: Faded Signal Lenses

Hi Jeremy,
    I had that same problem on my DeLorean. To fix it, I took off the lenses, went into
my work's prototyping paint lab, mixed up some translucent orange paint and shot it
quickly with a professional paint gun.  Very tricky, in that you have to use just the
right amount of thinner to make the paint translucent.  The wrong proportions will either
give you a bad "fish eye" effect, or it won't be clear enough.  I'll have to look at my
mixture again to give you figures on those proportions though.
    I tried a few other things, like generic model paint and even markers, but those
weren't permanent solutions.  So far the orange has lasted through a year of meticulous
car washes and even "armor-all-zation" without showing any signs of aging.  You can see
pictures here:

Before:

After:

I can probably do another set if you'd like.  Let me know via private e-mail if you're
interested and we'll talk details.  Same offer goes for the rest of the group.
    Thanks,
