Wacky Tachometer…electrical issue?

By admin No comments

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)

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

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

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 […]

More work done, some problems hit

By admin No comments

Replaced the spark plugs today, but had planned to do the wires also. The wires purchased seem to have a much bigger metal clip on them, and do not want to sit right on the distributor cap. Also, the wires are hard to access. Will probably wait until I get a new distributor cap to […]

Problem seeing through windshield

By admin No comments

Well, was heading home yesterday and driving in hard rain. First time driving like this in the D. Good thing I didnt have far to go, as my visibility was 10% at best out of the windshield. Water on the windshield was being washed away by the wipers, but leaving a thin film behind, which […]

Front caliper – check one off the list

By admin No comments

Well, yesterday with the help of a friend and my father (who has experience rebuilding cars, did a frame up restoration on a ’69 Camaro SS) we took off the caliper and rotor on the front drivers side. Dropped the rotor off at a tire store on the way to work. One hour and $15 […]
