Engine Bay Repaint

By admin No comments

One ‘defect’ with my car that has bothered me was that my engine bay was looking very worn for such a low mileage car. I don’t know if it was just from past owner neglect, but it was getting under my skin. Some areas were flat, some were lighter grey, some were shiny black. Everything […]

DMC Florida Passenger Door Dent Removal

By admin No comments

Went down to DMC Florida yesterday to get my unsightly Previous Owner body wound fixed. At some point my PO must have dropped something onto the door’s A-pillar side frame and put a nice crease in it. I have a few other small blemishes on the car but this by far stood out when you […]

Door aligned, roof set, things back together

By admin No comments

I spent another few hours playing with the passenger door to get it aligned right. Due to a good size dent I feel something was dropped on the car by the previous owner that knocked the door out of alignment. With the torsion bar out it is easy to loosen the door hinge bolts and […]

Painted the louvers, all black now

By admin No comments

So I had a chance with the louvers off and roof apart to do something I have wanted to for quite some time now. My louvers were nice and baked, a faded gray. I had cleaned part of them up by using a polishing compound to cut through the upper layer of paint. They still […]

Spoiler & rock shield repaint completed

By admin No comments

Now that the grill and bumpers are done, I need to freshen up the lower front spoiler as it has several issues with it. The rock grill is rusting and running onto the spoiler, the spoiler is discolored in some sections, and it also has a hole drilled from the previous owner. To start off, […]

Bumper repaint underway

By admin No comments

Began this week to repaint the front and rear bumpers. Both had been scraped at the corners by the previous owner, as well as the front bumper having other paint marks on it. Both were looking a bit faded and could use a fresh coat of paint to brighten them up. For this job I […]

Engine cleanup & coolant bottle replacement

By admin No comments

The DeLorean’s compartment was starting to show its age. While the car has low mileage, sitting for such a long time caused the stickers to yellow and peel, not to mention the water bottle was yellowed and cracked, and the metal hosing next to it was rusting. Yesterday I replaced the coolant bottle and brackets […]

Basic cleanup and detailing

By admin No comments

Also this weekend I got around to the following tasks: – Replaced side marker gaskets with new rubber as the old were shredded. – Replaced rear side marker lights as the old red lenses were cracked or damaged. – Replaced side marker bulbs with LEDs – Cleaned up engine compartment – Placed plastic loom around […]

Engine compartment label replacement

By admin No comments

So I am sitting around with not a whole lot to do today, and thought I would tidy up a few things that need it. First was my engine compartment right rear panel. The sticker was crooked & yellowed, and the latch was disgusting. It looks likt it had been brass coated, but I just […]
