The DeLorean goes on a permanent vacation

By admin No comments

Made the move yesterday from good old Niagara Falls, NY where I grew up, down to Orlando, FL where they never ever see snow. The DeLorean is in for a treat, as I can drive it all year ’round now. The drive down with the moving truck towing the car was a bit hectic, but […]

New ignition coil & tail light replacement

By admin No comments

Just a few other simple jobs today, I replaced the ignition coil with Special T Auto’s performance coil. Looks nice, car runs very good. This was recommended to me as I had replaced all the spark plugs, wires, cap & rotor but still had the original coil. I would say that it would be a […]

Master clutch cylinder & stainless line replacement

By admin No comments

To start with, for the life of me I could not find the bleed screw or the slave by simply looking behind the engine. I knew I saw it before. Couldn’t find it now. After 30 minutes of searching, grabbing, feeling, etc, I decided to take apart the air intake system so I could shift […]

Pivot bolt replacement & parking brake tweak

By admin No comments

Todays goal was to replace the pivot bolt which could break off thus causing the car to stick in gear. This is not a ‘huge’ safety issue like the trailing arm bolts, but important none the less. Plus it only costs $7 for the bolt. Always jack the car up and make sure it is […]

LED interior light update pictures

First, for those who think the binnacle would not look good with LEDs, or look too dim, heres a pic for you. Rather than replace with the WLED-W white bulbs on superbrightleds.com I used the WLED white 6 LED bulb. It is bright, gives the car a more modern white with a tint of blue […]

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 […]

Stereo and speaker upgrade

By admin No comments

Well, the car has made its return from storage back home yesterday. Got a LOT accomplished. In regards to the stereo system, with the help of a friend we first started by cutting and splicing in the new radio harness to the old car wiring, and removing all the old speaker wire. We ran new […]
