Subject: Re: TOBY-TAB update

Actually, there are two Pearce Design solutions for the known
limitations of the original trailing arm mounting solution.

If you look at the photos on the PDC website, you can see the
differences between the first and second T/A re-designs.

The first re-design is based on using the existing OEM trailing
arms and the second is based on the new PDC trailing arms.  The
first re-design is on Bryan's original prototype SS frame that
has over 100,000 miles on it (with OEM type TAB's) in which he
uses the original OEM epoxy coated mild steel trailing arms.
The first re-design was never marketed as an "add on" kit, but
with all the recent discussions on trailing arm support, I will
talk to Bryan an Reg Pearce about designing this in a kit form.

The only draw-backs I can see about installing a kit based upon
the first PDC re-design would be the need to separate the body
from the frame to install the kit and concern over structural
integrity of the existing frame where the kit would be mounted.

Later,
Rich W.

An excerpt from Service Bullitin ST-02-2/82 recently posted to the 
DMCNEWS.com website about painting the body panels, wheels, and 
fascias...

"Road Wheels

Since the road wheels have a color coating that is impreg-
nated into the surface as part of the heat treatment used
to temper the alloy, with an epoxy clear coat applied over
that, the adhesion of another color coat will be difficult
to achieve even with careful preparation.  Again, it is
suggested that you consult with your local paint distributor
before proceeding."

I'm not sure really what this means (seems a lot more exotic then 
simple paint), but it would certainly help all those painting buffs 
out there.  FYI, my wheels are flaking terribly.

I am also in Toby's camp.

Referring to this as a "catch" and not allowing movement ...
To reiterate my last email & to quote from earlier this year when on this topic
[message #30794],
"Dave said that this is NOT primarily a 'catch' all though it can act as one if
need be. It is mainly a support. Also Dave commented on the side to side twisting
motion that Toby mentioned stating that the amount is minimal enough that the
bushings in this setup can allow for such movement."

When developing the brackets they did have the trailing arm bolt hooked up to a
computer to measure movement both without and with the bracket in place. The
result mentioned in the above paragraph.

Since I suck at formulating coherent thought into writing [just ask my pal Jim -
I also have the English grades to prove it] here is another quote from earlier
this year. Yet another opinion but take it for what it's worth.

message #30804 
"I installed Dave Brackets on my V8 DeLorean in addition to changing bolts.
However, prior to installing the brackets I measured the movement of the bolt end
under full load acceleration using a piece of clay. I then installed the brackets
and remeasured the movement. The brackets reduced the forward movement of the end
of the bolt by almost 1/2". They clearly are to me superior to just having a bolt
into the frame for 
high horsepower applications. 
BOB [Brandys]"

As far as the design, Dave is a mechanic not an engineer. So laugh away. Grady
wasn't laughing, at least not to my face. He said it would be overkill for me to
put the Toby Tabs on my car. I then offered the extinct bolts to someone who
needed them.

I will keep you all posted if my epoxy cracks or frame rusts because of the
brackets. So far so good - least 12 yrs.

3lbs or less? Don't know.
Again, for "real" specs on the brackets and/or questions give Dave a call and get
it from "the horses mouth" rather than a posted guess-da-ment or a customer once
removed.

Just wanted to let you guys know that a 1981 DMC, VIN 1776, Turbo, 
Black interior, 5 speed manual is for sale in Fort Walton Beach, 
Florida.  This is a one owner, complete history is available by 
calling (850) 651-6616 preferably between 5pm and 8pm central time.

Harry Costanza is the seller.  The car has all upgrades from when it 
was new.  The turbo upgrade was professionally done by a Volvo

Is actually a problem endemic to all PRV's, not DeLoreans (are there
even any 7mm bolts on remainder of car?)

If you ever do strip 7x1mm bolt hole, 5/16-24 taps VERY nicely as a
replacement. 1mm pitch translates into slight fraction more than 24
TPI. Tap will follow remaining threads as easily as bolt itself.

7mm hardware from industrial suppliers, but you need to order in bags
of 100. My local NAPA sells individually (grade 8.8), but cost about
45 cents each.

Painting with a clear coat will hold up fine if you prepare the 
wheel correctly. I did mine about 15 years ago and they still look 
good. I scraped a curb just this year and a little NAPA touch up 
paint hides the scrape nicely. However, powder coating these days is

Subject: Re: wheel color

Powder coating is a very hard, durable coating. One of it's
limitations is repair and recoating. Since it is so hard to do a spot
repair it is recomended that you strip the part (which is harder to do
than epoxy coatings!) and repaint. Powder coating has been "perfected"
since the 70's. The main thrust of development now is lower
temperature curable coatings. In the beginning you had to heat the
part to over 450 degrees F. This prevented powder coating many types
of parts. Eastwood has a whole line of powder coating equipment and
colors to choose from but if you are not going to do a lot then it
makes sense to send the parts out and have them done profesionally.

Subject: Re: TOBY-TAB update

With all this talk about the trailing arm bolts I guess nothing is
indestructable. The BEST advice, no matter what kind of bolts you are
using, is to inspect the trailing arm bolts and washers OFTEN. A
"trick" that is often used on aircraft is to use "witness marks". This
is nothing more than a fancy nail polish. You put it on the part you
want to watch like a bolt head or nut. Spread enough so it goes in a
line over the head of the bolt onto the washer. Now when you inspect
and you see the nail polish is cracked you know something moved. You
could also use a magic marker and write the # of washers nearby on the
frame so when you inspect or work in that area you know how many are
supposed to be there. Ask your wife or girlfriend for some of her old
nail polish, they all have some that they will never use, and put it
in your tool box. If anyone asks, it is to do a quick touch-up if you
chip a nail while you are working on the car! I also use it so if
anyone messes with a part I know immediatly if it was touched. It is
also handy when you take things apart, after centerpunching you can
put a drop in the dimple to make it easier to see.

Subject: Re: 7x1mm Bolts on PRV

A good solution and very tempting. The BIG drawback is if you or
anyone ever takes it apart you will mix up the bolts and not put it
back in the right spot. Now you have 2 stripped bolts. It is always
best to try to keep things origional if you can but I know sometimes
you have to take shortcuts. Just be aware of the pitfalls. It is not
that hard to get the right bolts and coil inserts. Even Home Depot now
sells metric hardware. You can always buy a longer bolt and cut it
down if you have to. When working in the water pump area you have to
expect to break one of the bolts so be prepared.

Subject: nice Delorean for sale, make offer

It bothers me that I have been trying to sell my Delorean for so long and haven't even gotten offers. I have been asking 18,000 for my car and the reserve was 16,500. Which if I may say is a great deal.  It is a '82 with 5spd and grey interior. It is turnkey and very nice, plus many extras, and it is even autographed by JZD. Check it out at http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2447754905 

If you are looking for a nice car just make me an offer. I will consider almost anything. I am easy to deal with and will not play those annoying games.
