Small fix

By admin No comments

I replaced the battery bolts that hold the positive and negative wires to the car battery. The bolts that had came with the battery the previous owner purchased were pretty stripped, and the positive wire would pop out if jarred enough. I did not want this to happen when driving, or the DeLorean would just […]

More brake issues & upcoming maintenance

By admin No comments

So, today I decided to diagnose a slight squeal I have been hearing when driving 40+. I couldn’t really tell where it was coming from, but noticed whe I went down a sidestreet slower than 40, I could hear it echoing off other cars, so it must be present always just at higher speeds its […]

Clean stainless is pretty

By admin No comments

Had some time today to work on blending the stainless in areas that had stains or marks. It worked pretty good, but is very time consuming. I worked hard on the hood as it had several sections with spot marks that were detracting. As other owners have said, blending the hood causes the X brace […]

Tachometer (maybe) fixed

By admin No comments

I was instructed to try cleaning the tachometer ground wire to stop it from freaking out on me, so that is what I did. It involved removing the rear parcel shelf wall, which was very easy after removing the four screws that hold it in, located below the net hooks. The wall pulled forward, and […]

Wacky Tachometer…electrical issue?

I just seem to be breaking things the last 24 hours…first my fiancees hard drive died when I was using the computer, then the D had issues leaving for work, now I am at work and my monitor just started to crap out on me… So, I get in the car to head to work […]

Wow a step up…from mono to stereo (sort of)

By admin No comments

Today was the day from hell. I have (finally, successfully) completed the worst job to date on the DeLorean. No, it did not have anything to do with the engine, suspension, braking system, clutch, transmission, or even the trailing arm bolts (which were actually pretty easy), it had to do with changing out the dash […]

Updated to-do list

By admin No comments

1. Replace the front caliper 2. Replace the belts and bearings 3 a. Engine tune-up kit – spark plugs 3 b. Engine tune-up kit – distributor and wires 4. Pivot bolt replacement – seems like this breaking could be a bad thing, and its only $10 to fix. Do not want to be driving and […]

A/C panel realignment

By admin No comments

Ever since I have picked up the car, the sticker on the A/C panel was crooked. I had tried previously to heat it up and shift it to no avail. Today I ran it under hot water and then peeled it back and reseated it. Looks good now!

LEDs installed and dome light fixed

By admin No comments

Managed to get the LEDs in today and installation wasn’t a problem. Also fixed the dome light issue of the front not working right with the door open. Looked like the previous owner had switched one of the positive and a negative wire when replacing the headliners. The fragile plastic of the front dome light […]
