Subject: Advertising Facts

I stopped by DeLorean One's website this morning and was puzzled by the 
main page that states "The world's largest source for DeLorean parts, 
service and accessories"   Correct me if I am wrong but wouldn't DMCH be 
the holder of "Parts Source" title being that they are the owners of the 
entire DMC parts inventory from KAPAC?  

This is not intended to start a flame war against D1 or to take issue 
with how many feel about his not providing phone support to non-customer 
calls etc....This is purely a legal and advertising question.   This is 
quite different than a hamburger joint advertising "The Best Hamburgers 
in the World", eh?

Is there any place that has copies of the original window stickers like

Or does anybody have my original window sticker for VIN# 06683?

Subject: Choppy wipers / leaks

Does anyone else have the problem with "choppy wipers"?
What I mean is, the wipers do not glide smoothly, but rather are
choppy across the windshield.
I have new 22" Triple-Edge wipers, the windshield is clean
and has been recently treated with Rain-X.
None of this has helped.
Any ideas?

Also, my car lives outside in the driveway.
When it rains heavy I have trouble with leaks.
I find a very wet carpet under the passenger seat.
It doesn't seem to be coming from up top because the seat,
or console, or no path downward shows a trail of water.
It seems to be coming from down below.
Also, each of the corners of the top of the door where
the sunvisors are.
Just the corners get a little wet.

It is getting annoying.

Before DMC Houston claimed ownership of all of KAPAC's inventory, D1 was the 
world's
largest parts source.  If you would have looked a little closer at the 
website, you'll notice
it hasn't been updated since 1997.

Not this time to be honest; I made this public over 18 months ago
and I got tons of email then, this time you're third...
My first message was on 25-7-2002:
<http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/dmcnews/message/27043>
And I comprised a FAQ regarding most questions I got:
<http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/dmcnews/message/27069>
Most of this still stands, except for the last question;
see below for explanation...

It's not THAT small an area. I'm actually anticipating someone
putting a small TFT-screen there, like you find on Cell Phones
and small color TV's nowadays...

> I would LOVE to have one of those!
[snip]

I don't sell them and don't plan on doing so either.
Over the past time I've made yet another 2 revisions of the
thing, the depicted one is something like revision 6 or 7...

As I said above; there's a little something about the FAQ;
I wrote:
>> Q- Can/will you provide me with instructions
>> and/or part# to make one of these things myself?
>> A- I can and I will, but this takes time

Since there was virtuellay NO demand for this I haven't even bothered
making any instructions or parts lists. The latter would have been
futile anyway as some of the NEW parts I'd used have since become
unavailable and/or have been relabeled or re-categorised...

And for those interested:
>> I just put together a list of what I'm WORKING on in some degree

>> still in R&D-phase... of these 23, 19 are car-related and of those 19,
>> 13 are meant to go onto Dagger sometime in the (distant(?))future.

Of THOSE 23 Projects 8 are still pending, of which 4 on my DeLorean.
But there've been 9 other (new) projects on the D that have been done
or are newly pending and I've also bought another car to replace
my old Ford Escort I then had and this "new" car has also added
new projects to my list...

Current score: 19 projects, of which 11 car-related, 7 concerning
the DeLorean, 4 on my Nissan and one on the various other cars my
family owns and drives....

If you have any specific questions on making such a panel yourself
drop me an email at <delorean <at> home <dot> nl> and I'll try
to answer every single one of them...

Everyone have a great weekend,

http://www.midstatedmc.com/  and click on Downloads. It's a totally free 
PDF reproduction that you fill in yourself with details you want. Then just 
print it out. Not 100% exact as far as typeface and size is concerned, but 
about 95% accurate. Originals were slightly bigger than 8-1/2"x11", so you 
probably won't get much closer. On the same page there is a link to a scan 
of my original sticker that you can compare it to.

Subject: Re: Choppy wipers / leaks

Try 0000 (4 ZERO's) grade steel wool on the windshield with windshield 
washer fluid. This will take all of the wax and built up dirt and other 
stuff of your windshield you just cant see. I worked at a Ford 
dealership and we used this to prep new cars and remove all of the 
shipping spray film off the windows.

From: tobyp_at_dml_katewwdb.com
Subject: Re: Choppy wipers / leaks

Robert - As far as the choppy wipers, it can be caused by an overly 
agressive wiper blade configuration creating too much "stiction", or 
worn linkage in the wiper system.  Some of these modern "upgraded" 
wiper blades that have multiple blades, etc. tend to not work as well 
as a good quality single blade setup like OEM.  I'm not sure that any 
of that applies to your case, but ...

The water in the passengers footwell is probably coming from the 
drain tube in the air intake box being plugged.  There is a rubber 
tube (part number 105909) with a 90 degree bend that can become 
clogged with stuff from the outside.  Remove the tube, clear it out, 
and reassemble.  The water seepage at the door corners could be 
caused by water wicking through in the headliner fabric.  Make sure 
that there is no fabric edge extending beyond the edging on the door 
seal.  You may even want to seal along the edge of the door seal with 
clear sealant to prevent any wicking.  Make sure all drain paths down 
from the upper door channels to both front and rear are free of 
blockage.  Welcome to my world - the Pacific Northwest, where there 
is always a chance of rain.

Subject: Re: Grady "Resold" parts. (WAS: RACK UPDATE)

You have to remember,THESE are parts that were made in 1980-82,and as 
such will show "warehouse" age,as a example I bought a totalled 
Delorean for parts in 1982,that was one month old when it got 
totaled,well when I got the car and started dismanteling it,I was 
suprised how everything was BRIGHT and SHINEY,and how things came 
apart real easy,fast Forward to 2004,I looked at the drivetrain the 
other day,all the luster was gone,the drivetrain looked liked it 
aged,BUT it still WAS THE SAME untouched/STORED drivetrain from 1982!!
My point here is you cannot judge a part(or drivetrain) by outside 
appearences,just cause something looks dull and ugly,doesn't mean,it 
is not a perfectly functioning part or item.(it's what is on the 
INSIDE that counts!!)Hope this makes some sense.

Subject: Front/rear fascias from Josh/Ken

I just recieved my front and back fascias I purchased from Josh today.  Josh
sent them out very quickly (got them in only 2 days!) Some people may have
worried about the quality because of the price being so low, but don't be!
I must say they are EXTREMELY high quality and look GREAT!!!  They even come
with the bar across the front fascia to take care of the eyebrow effect!  If
anyone is thinking of getting these I highly recommend them.

Take care,

I can make you a very good looking reproduction window sticker, actually I 
could print you out
several of them for about $10.00
I can also give you a few blanks.
These would be made on a high quality color laser printer, not an inkjet.
They would look very accurate.

All you need to do is send me all the info on your car, the complete VIN 
number,
auto/manual, if you know the dealer you got it from or where that would help 
too.
I need the month and year it was made.
