  How about the telephone tech service you provide during DeLorean Services' 
normal business hours?  Will this continue for non-members or will we have to 
become members to enjoy this great help?

Nick, you are the answer to a prayer, I've been so distressed, my brakes squeal only
periodically, can't be depended upon to squeal when most needed.  Please give shipping
details (do you give stamps?).

Subject: a-ha! car alarm and remote entry

I am Done... I should have more faith in myself.

Here are my notes from the field, for posterity and those also thinking of
doing it themselves.
I used a Crimestopper 2001FC. It's good model though certainly not top of
their line; but it is reputable. I initially bought it based on the two
auxiliary remote outputs, though I found it was unnecessary. This does,
however, leave me with room to add remote start or bonnet unlatch if I get
my springer fixed on the trunk(bonnet).
Basically, I used the secondary unlock circuit (or passenger unlock circuit)
that was designed for non-central locking systems to un-latch my driver's
side door. It is activated by a second press of the disarm+unlock button.
The aux out #1 (trunk pop) unlatches the passenger door.
I used the solenoid ground wire method. It is a bugger to track ground wires
down, I'll tell ya. Basically-- disconnect everything in the door and the
two harness joints at the rear of the cabin behind the removable rear-wall.
The LH solenoid wire ended up coming into the relay/fuse center from the RH
bundle; it was the lone ground wire, not in a pair. The RH solenoid ground
wire came through in the LH bundle. Two ground wires are side by side
there-- you'll have to test with an ohm meter or continuity tester.
I bought some SPAL actuators at Car Toys because I couldn't wait to order
Darryl Tinnerstets. They may not be strong enough; they were kind of iffy at
first but I didn't have any problems at all today (and I made lots of trips
out for myself and coworkers). I mounted them straight back from the lever
that is attached to the inside handle and connected right where the cable
from the outside handle connects. It seemed like the best spot. I bent the
linkages in nice clean angles to avoid other pieces.
It may not be the best-- that would be Darryl's; his is long tested and more
professional than mine. But it is working!

other things to note-- don't hook your "ignition wire" up to the AC fan
relay! When I flipped the AC on my alarm started chirping as the fans kicked
in and stole power! Pretty funny....

It's a litlle block with a clamp that attaches to the wiper arm, to direct a 
jet of windshield washer fluid onto the windshield. Unlike cars that use two 
fixed jets hidden in the air intake grille, the DeLorean only needs one jet 
since it sweeps back and forth on the wiper arm. I broke the clamp on mine by 
mistake and did a temporary fix by reattaching it with two tiny black cable 
ties.  The part is still available, last I heard.

Subject: DMC Parts Free - Just Pay for Shipping!

I just completed the job of lowering my car using the PJ Grady set up.

All I can say after some short driving trips is "WOW"! The shocks are light years ahead of the tired OEM 20 year old items. The ride/handling is excellent and the car looks much better IMO.
It no longer has the front high look and the tires/wheels fill the wheel well really nicely.

I also performed a complete brake overhaul including new rotors.

With that I have free for the cost of shipping: 
2 OEM Front Springs (33K miles on the car at time of removal, same for rotors.)
3 Rotors (Can be cut again, I ordered all new ones blindly that I really didn't need.) 
The drivers side rotor was stuck because of a bad wheel bearing and took some "persuasion" to remove so it's pretty beat up.
Both Cables for the emergency brake (THESE ARE BRAND NEW) My E-Brake only needed new pads and an adjustment.
I bought them blind as well, my over anxiousness is your gain, I know I could probably just return them for credit but I'd rather help somebody out who might really need them. 

So if you are experimenting with cutting your own springs or have a need, contact me off list to arrange for shipping at haneydr(AT) FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED.

The Wiper Arm Jet Part # 100806 can be located in your parts manual at 3/6/1
fig 19. As pictured it is attached to the passenger side wiper arm. When the
washer is activated the jet distributes windshield cleaning fluid to the
windshield as the arm sweeps across the glass.

This part has a high failure rate because it is constantly exposed to the
elements. Fortunately this item is in stock and relatively inexpensive.
