Does anyone know of a compatible bulb socket for the side markers? 
Mine have totally rusted into bits and need to be replaced badly.

Subject: Aircon hi/low pressure connector plugs


I am in the final stages of giving my aircon system an overhaul.  Having 
cleaned the grime from the connector plugs that fit onto the high and low 
pressure switches I have found that the wire sheath has split just above the 
plug/moulding to expose the copper within.  The split is too close to the 
moudling to allow a thorough repair.

I would like to find new moulding plugs as mine were badly corroded anyway.

The markings show 'RWC England' on the mouldings.

Can anyone suggest the correct name for them so that I can find 
replacements?  Or know where I can get them?

I thought that the crimp connectors and wiring slid in separately but the 
crimps seem encased within the plastic...

Many thanks in advance

Subject: Dealing with windshield when replacing A post trim



I need to replace the A post trim on each side of my interior.  I see
that the vinyl seems to pinch in just under the windshield on the
inside.  

Is it possible to replace these trim pieces without removing the
windshield?

The Auto Glass Specialists in my area said the odds of the glass
breaking are very good.  What has been other peoples' experience
dealing with the main windshield?

I've been a long time reader of the DML and hope to provide some
insight to others with my experience restoring vin#10579 in the future.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Kevin and everyone,

We really enjoyed the Spring Social.  It was a break that we really 
needed to get away from work and play with fun people.

The shop owner was great and PJ deserves a big hand for working, while 
the rest of us were having fun.
Debbie was great handling the parts table.

It was also great how Dave helped all the people with there cars.   
Socializing and working on cars at the same time is something the 
Midwest club needs to learn how to do .

Real on site cooked food, what a treat.!

Hope to make more of the future events.

thanks for all the fun

Bob, Gail, Ryan and Tiff.

PS.

I only wish more of the ice cream flavors were not sold out.!

I was at DMCF the other day with one of the other list members who was 
having his replaced. I was told that some cars require the windshield 
removal and some don't. We thought it had something to do with interior 
color but his 83 grey needed the windshield removed and my 81 black would 
also require removal so I am not sure there is any real logic to it.

At the spring social, Kevin had one of the designers and installers

THe most interesting statement was that  he figured that they had 
installed the dual turbo set up in at least 150 to 200 cars.   He 
substantiated this count.

Most conversions were done on Ds in the Long Island area.   Some

I should have checked the DML archives (like I am supposed to) before
posting.  There have been a few similar issues.  It sounds like this
work can be done without removing the windshield.  I can cut out the
old post and remove any vinyl that is sandwiched between the glass and
frame.

I have already purchased replacement posts from DMCH along with metal
clips which I am not sure what to do with.  What I need to know now is
how to install the new posts and what the clips are used for.

Please show patience for a new and very enthusiastic owner.  Again,
any help in this direction would be appreciated.

Don't 'cha just love it when you can answer your own posts? 

Your glass man is right, although it is possible, more people break 
windows getting them out than not. It only takes one little slip. 

In the build of the car, the post covers are installed prior to the 
glass. Depending on how the vinyl was cut, the glass may actually be 
glued partially to the vinyl. Be careful about pulling it off, the 
operative move is to cut it with a sharp razor blade since you don't 
want to pull the glue out from under the glass. 

The posts just sort of glue in, I don't recall any metal clips on the 
ones I've done. Hoopefully it will be obvious when you pull the old 
covers off, if no metal clips fall out you probably don't need the 
new ones. I recall it being handy to have a bunch of those huge clips that you get at Harbor Freight to hold it all together while the glue dries.

If you are taking a census Vin # 17043 has a very early orginal twin island turbo set up. 
 
And I very much enjoyed meeting and talking with the designer John Conway at the social and having him test drive my car. John informed me that 170 MPH speedometer in my car was part of the offered turbo package...I had always thought it was a just stock Delorean speedometer. 
 
It is a unfortunate that the service and support for these systems has declined, perhaps the Association can play a role in restoring it.

Anyone have a good recommendation as to better, LOUD horns that they have

There are some almost (need to add a ground wire) exact replacement 
FIAMM horns available about anywhere that are pretty loud. There's 
plenty of room under there, if you really want to wake people up, hit a 
boneyard and get a set of horns from a big American car - Lincoln, 
Caddy etc. If you do that you will need to run a bigger power feed back 
to the electrical compartment and use a relay to turn the horns on. The 
stock DMC wiring comes right off the steering column switch and will 
not power a substantial horn directly.

This is how most vehicles (circa 1981 at least) do it. Allows you to
test for a bad sending unit by simply touching the wire to the block
(BRIEFLY! Leave it there too long and you'll burn up the tiny wire
that moves the pointer).

Have you checked the upper suspension bushings? Collapsed bushings 
could account for that much negative camber - but, I would expect 
the problem to be somewhat obvious. -1.7 degrees is a lot (over 3/4 
in.) Something out at the bottom end could be at fault too allowing 
the bottom of the wheel to shift out. Is the lower control arm 
tearing apart at the ball joint (this seems to be happening more and 
more)?

My shop manual specifies front camber at between 0 and -0.5, and 
says it's non-adjustable, so if that's correct, something is strange 
with the left side.  Additionally, the left front sits 0.5" higher 
than the right, so we're not sure what's going on.

I installed a set of air horns from a chain auto store for about $25
-$30 and have enjoyed the result. 

I used the existing horn bracket mount and put the little compressor in
the area in front of the trunk compartment where the tire tools are
intended to be stored (on the driver's side). I had to drill a hole
(about 1/4") for the airline an a very small hole for the wires.  Now
the electrical connector is not exposed to the elements.

You could get a bigger horn if you want to be sure that people look in
their rear view mirror looking for a chrome bumper rather than a
stainless car. :-)

I was responsable for getting the guest speaker and really lucked out!
John Conway was really great. He said he enjoyed meeting all of us and
had a good time. This is just one of the many perks of joining a club.
It gives us a way to do things that cannot be done on an individual
basis. We will try to involve John in the future and in the meantime
he is our link to the past when entrapanaurs offered all kinds of
options and upgrades for Deloreans. His recollections offered a peek
into the past and the way Island Turbos operated. He said he himself
did over 200 installs. Don Steger has told me he did over 400. That
would mean that there should be over 600 twin turbo set-ups out there.
In the future we have other speakers that will talk on different
topics so if you want to learn more about the world of Deloreans you
really do have to come to our events! A shameless plug for Delorean
Midatlantic.

the blade or of one that is compatible with it?  Where could I obtain one?

Thanks

Hello group. I was inspired by the Project Delorean site at 
http://www.projectdelorean.com/  ;while searching for some more 
foam/fibreglass projects I found this 
http://www.lionheartcreations.com/Portfolio_Page3.html it appears to be some 
sort of Delorean/Bricklin hybrid! Would it have been a contender for a DMC 
12 compact like BMW's 3 series? http://www.bmwworld.com/models/compact.htm

Just to make sure you didn't get a bad strut, did you swap out with the
other one to confirm it isn't bad before you adjust.

Conundrum:

I had same problem.   It is your torsion bars, and it was discussed at
length like one month ago.   Go to Google.com and do an advanced
search picking only DMC news and put torsion bar.

Good luck!..
