Everyone should definitely heed David's "duct tape" advice.  My
left-side window went off it's track and jammed in the down postion,
plus the door handle rods inside the door needed adjusting, so I had
my arm down through those cut-out holes. After I was done I went
inside the house to wash up and saw blood all over my arm and several
cuts.  Funny thing is, I never felt a thing while working on the car.
 Sure stung like heck afterwards though.

I call having the gull wings open, the "Parade Stance".  Pop them open
during a parade.     I will never forget at Memphis seeing about 20 D's
coming in to the entrance street to Elvis's "Heartbreak Hotel" with ALL the
doors up.  What a beautiful sight.  That was a group carvanning from
somewhere, I think Dick Ryan was in that group!

that combo sounds great...Could We get some part numbers on those items? I have been wanting to upgrade as well but keep running into problems locating the correct parts for the D. The parts people say that nothing matches for numbers i gave them cross reference for volvos, when looking up +4 bosch plugs...or anything else for that matter. Was also trying to locate part numbers for Rotor and distributor cap. any help will be appreciated!

Hey List,

I have put up a page on CarDomain about my car and the stereo I installed where I go into detail on the setup.  You should all check it out, and make sure you sign the guestbook and vote!!

Congrads Shannon on your new Baby. 
Looking at the Ultrasound I can't see the "Stick".
Is it a Boy or a Girl DeLorean ?

I could be completely out to lunch here but I recently removed the carpeted
panels that cover the rear bulkhead on four different DeLoreans.  The
purpose was to make modifications to mount speakers on these panels.  They
were absolutely four different colors.  One came from a black interior car
and was closer to a charcoal color.  The other three ranged from a silvery
gray to a rather yellowish gray.  The silverish was from a very low mileage
car while the yellowish had seen considerably more sun.  I suspect the
history of the car accounts for the most variation at this time.  Things
like smoking/non-smoking, battery fumes from leaving a battery charger on
too long, sun exposure as well as possible different batch lots of original
material.  There was a surprising amount of differences as well in the other
materials used so they were obviously struggling with vendors and getting
the production problems ironed out.

I kept carpet samples from spots not exposed (back side wrapover) over the
years and there was still conciderable variation, so I know it was not all
sun induced color change.  Hope this helps.

I don't have a D yet...but still dreaming and drooling.  I do have the 
Impulses, Conquests, ZX's, and SVX's and the parts getting Pathfinder. 

I have been here reading the list for a long while hoping that some 
interesting info might be useful in my Impulses..

Anyway, there was a post about the headliner falling down. :)
Well, of all of my babies that I have pulled from the yard or bought severely 
neglected had the same headliner problems...  

I just wanted to point out that Joann's fabrics (craft/sewing chain) has 5 
different colors of headliner material (fabric with the foam backing) for 
about $10/yard.

They are always willing to order for you!  :) At least my local ones love me 
to death!

I emailed them a while ago about finding other colors so that I can put one 
of my Impulses back stock for the Carlisle car show 5/2/03.

Here are the sku's that way they can order them for you.  It takes less than 
Black: 3496072
Dark Blue:3496056
Grey: 3496064
Maroon: 3496080
Royal Blue: 3496106
Tan: 3496098

Also, I have used a product for dying carpets on the headliner material  
since the Dark Blue isn't really the Dolphin blue of my Impulse interior.  I 
took this product and sprayed it on a piece of  scrap headliner material... 
You know, just to see what would happen and if I could use it! :)
It is made by Dye Pro International.  You can buy the 400$ kit to do every 
color of the rainbow or you can buy individual bottles from for about $10/bottle (and you have to buy the color 
chart for $20?) that makes about 1/2gal of color. You use a spray bottle like 
for killing weeds from Lowes for about 8$ and LIGHTLY SPRAY THE HEADLINER 
MATERIAL.   I didn't soak it and so far it looks decent!  I might just use it 
for my car! :) 

Hey! You never know unless you try it!  I remember the time 9 years ago when 
I used Rit Dye to dye the carpets of my 85.5 Impulse --cut in half and soak 
in a baby pool for 3 weeks!  And crochet hooks can be found in my tool box!  

I buy individual bottles of this dye from the auction that I go to every 
Tuesday... MAG(formerly MasonDixon Auto Auction), Greencastle, PA. if you are 
in the neighborhood! :)  They don't have you buy the color charts since you 
can look at theirs and pick your color.  

I hope this is of some use to you. ;)

I had a feeling the whole door-open-while-driving issue would come up. I was doing all of 15 mph... (that's even 5 mph under the campus speed limit). I'm not complaining or bragging... just thought it was a funny story and wanted to share it with people who could relate to/appreciate it :-). -Louie
