Let me introduce you to VIN 16951 from August 1982. I just want to create a thread on the car to share the work done on the car over the past few years and the years to come. Nevertheless, itís not a major restoration, so I hope you donít mind a thread here?
So, I bought the car on October the 14th of 1995. The car had around 24000 miles on the odometer.
It belongs to a lady who was living in Missouri. A French guy bought it and brought it back to France and keeps it just 2 years and decided to sell it because he has too many cars. It means I am the third owner of the car.
I took a few pictures when I brought it back home. Old license plate ending 73.

Changing owner means changing license plate, this time ending by 38
2944429445
Sorry guys for the quality of the pictures, but back in those days, I didnít have a digital camera and Iím not sure if it already exists.

I didnít think to take pictures of all the work done at this time and I regret it now.
Fortunately, I took a few and try to explain the little job done.
On the last pictures, I donít know if you saw it, but the front light was European, not the original sealed beam, I ordered them at D1. They had a really nice printed catalog and Internet wasnít part of my life like many of previous owners I guess, but it was fun to write and go to the post office to buy nice stamps for the USA!

Fortunately, some parts were available in a French Renault garage. I had to change the fuel accumulator a few days after being an owner. Spark & wire were changed too, to name a few parts.
I didnít think about taking picture at that timeÖ

I was younger and interested by new radio. I decided to take off the Craig to replace it with a more modern unit. Also, I have installed a rear camera because I thought it was cool to get a black & white monitor on the dashboard.
The new radio needs some power amplifier to play songs.
As an í83 model it doesnít have a clock on the dash, so replaced it by a thermometer at this time.

Like many people, I thought the car was too height for a sports car.
Old fashion way was to cut the spring to get it lower.
First time I made a mistake and cut too many spring so the front was too loo, and almost touch the groundÖ I had to ordered some new spring from D1 and cut it properly this time.
You can see the result below.

This was the first modification to the car. Time changed and improvement too.
For example, for the spring, it will be safer to change them for the set of Eibach which I already bought and changed the chock by the Spax.
Furthermore, the radio will be replaced by the original CraigÖ The camera and monitor will be removed too.

And then, time to digital pictures. (I have plenty of old silver pictures but it will take too much time to scan them all and beside they are only cruising pictures or stand still picture of the car)
So, when I had problem with my exhaust I asked how much it would cost for a brand new one, but with the shipping charge and custom tax it was very expensive. At that time even with a Swiss specialist it was expensive to buy it.
So, I asked someone to make his own exhaust in stainless to replace it. The price was almost equal to the original and will last forever. So, I decided to do it this way and the result was quite nice.
Iím sure you can find a better design nowadays but Iím happy with this one.

Someday, a leak appears next to the clutch pedal. It was time to change master and slave cylinder, and by that time to do a complete rebuild of the brake which wasnít be done since a few years.
The car will be unavailable for the next few months.
As you can see there is a lot of rust down there.
All the parts will be repainted.
I have tried to paint the breaks in red, but the result wasnít really good as the paint wasnít a good quality.
Time to redo it and remove this paint to paint them in grey.
Of course, the break line will be change for the stainless version.
A brand new fuel filter will be there too.
I was lucky to find a brand new reservoir on eBay.
Clutch and brake are now good, quite happy with the result.

As a bonus, I bought for the car the new door lock module and the joe cool module
This was allowing me to see a few problems I didnít pay attention into the past.
A few wires were melted as some fuse.
So, it became urgent to repair all this until the car will burn itselfÖ
29695296872968829689296902969129692296932969429686
I bought a brand new fuse bow from Ed Uding.
The job was done in one day, I must say I am most confident now but have to check regularly to see what is happening here to avoid this.

After 19 years, it was time to change once again the fuel accumulator.
I spend 3 days to change it because I was unable to unbolt the screw, so painful. There is no room for your hands down there.

Anyway, it was only for a few months, because something else appears on the car. The water temperature was going to the red zone.
In fact, it was a problem from the thermostat. A friend came to help me on this, 4 hands are always better than 2!

During all these years the car was still at my parentsí home because I was living into an apartment without any garage for the car.
Now, I live in a house, and I have made a special garage for the car. This will allow me to work more often on the car.
297862978529784297832978729788
Right now I have to change the water pump because it leaks a few.
Furthermore, all these years I bought several parts I have to change on the car. (from all the vendors out there)
I will try to take a picture of all of them when I will find some time.
So, I will try to post some pictures when Iíll be able to work on the car.

Thanks!
The stainless water pipes came from the UK: (Thanks to Chris Parnham for the link)
http://www.stainless-exhaust.com/
The stainless tank plate came from a vendor from eBay.
He sold 2 or 3 of them.
I bought it because is has the same design of the original plate, the other vendors (for now) doesn't have it but just flat...

After all these years, I have decided to remove these entire little gadget, rear camera & bip when you back up.
At the same time itís time to change the plate behind the exhaust, because mine was a little rusty. The new one came from Delorean Industrie, thanks to Josh
338303383133832
As always, the screws are also rusty and broke when I tried to remove them. They will be changed by new one in stainless.
33834
33833
Removing all the wires I have connected
33836
33835
The new stainless plate from Josh, a beauty
33837
These screws are also a little tired and two of them brokeÖ
33838
Iíd like to replace them by something like this
http://www.deloreanindustries.com/rear-fascia-lower-stud-kit-stainless/
On the other hand, how to remove the old ones?
And how to fix the new ones, by glue?
Any advice guys?

Next step will be to change the water pump, which is leakingÖ
I need to change it to take it back to the road again.

We remove the old inserts with a flame-less heating element and or cut out with a heated knife. Installation is a breeze with the proper two part epoxy and new insert kit. Replacing all nine usually takes a couple of hours. We only do this off car btw.

Domi
04-24-2015, 12:57 PM
I finally managed to remove this nut
34083
I go so slowly
34084
Everything we cleaned properly there 1 year ago is refilled yet again, proving that the pump actually doesnít work properly
34085
I struggled to loosen the alternator belt
34086
Finally I managed to dismantle the pump
34087
To disassemble the rear of the pump. I still have 2 screws
34088
My vacuum cleaner "home made" (yellow pipe)
3408934090
I also wanted to dismantle these pieces to better clean them, but it remains stuck on the seal and on the other there is a screw that I can not get loose, I'm afraid of breaking it.
34091

Domi
04-25-2015, 10:50 AM
Failing to undo the last flanges screw I decided to leave them and clean them in place.
I'll see later to change the two gaskets.
I have installed 2 temporary hoses supplied with the kit. (silicone in the next few months)
34095
Until the last screw soak in wd40, installation of the taillights circuits from PJ Grady bought at DPI
340963409734098
I think to get my wires here rather than the intake pipe, which will prevent me from dismantling the connectors in the future.
What do you think ?
34099
Finally, the last screw was removed, but for now impossible to remove the back of the pump.
Does anyone have an idea?
34100
Thanks !

Domi
04-25-2015, 12:02 PM
Finally find a way to remove the back of the pump

It's a little bit rusty inside

Fantastic work Domi!! Although that beautiful rear plate is not possible to see when mounted... The pump pulley the the most important look;). That's some pretty awful rusty coolant water:s

Domi
04-26-2015, 12:17 PM
Thanks for the compliments, appreciated :)
We can see the stainless plate trough the hole of the bumper and always see it to enjoy it :hihi2:
Yes the coolant in the valley has a dark color, nevertheless, the coolant in the pipes was fine.

Nice Domi! Small tip;
When applying liquid gaskets do not clean off the excess glue upon assembly. Let it dry for a couple hours and then you can easily pull it off when dry. That way it is nice and clean and you don't get all smeared in it;)

Free time today, so let's keep going on rebuild my parts
Put these two pipes around the water pump. One of them was a little bit too long, so I had to cut it.
Next time it will be silicone pipes.
3427034271
Next:
342723427334274
I replaced the broken screw from the fuel line.
I think I need a complete kit of screw for the next time.
I tried to mount an alternator tensioner I bought on eBay, unfortunately, like I still have an old alternator, the hole for the screw is too small anf I can't fit it.
So, for now I mounted the stainless one from Josh.
34275
Almost done, top of the engine is okay, I just have one little wire to connect on the starter at the bottom.
34276
Next step, buy some coolant and do some test :)

Domi
05-09-2015, 12:22 PM
Bought some coolant today, and fill up the tank.
Bleed the air and everything should be fine, but no.
The water temp came up to 220į and my fans doesn't start at all?
I don't know why, as the thermostat is like new, less than a year.
Also, I had to replace the copper seal on the fuel lines, as I had several leak, i don't want to burn the engine compartment...
3431534314

Domi
05-09-2015, 01:21 PM
Small update, I just check the level of my water tank and it was empty!
I think that's why the cooling wasn't on at the moment.
I don't even think to touch the water pipes next to the cooling system.
Next try tomorrow!

Someone told me the lift piston on the trunk and louver are upside down?
What do you think, is there a way to lubricate the piston better than another?

Bought a brand new alternator from John Hervey, 140A and started to remove the old one.
Also, bought a tensioner bracket on eBay to replace the original one, I think it it will be easier for the belt.
Connect the new wire of the alternator to the old one by soldering.
Here are a few pictures.

The new alternator is in place. Too bad the 12v screw is not at the same place of the old Motorola.
The wires are now closer to the exhaust :(

Tried to replace both tie rod end with no luck today.
3538335384
I wasn't able to unscrew them, maybe because of the original black paint.
35385
So, for now I have just changed the ball joint with some new grease inside.
This is the fastest way to repair them, as I need the car to be ready for the French test (MOT) at the end of this month.
Next time I will change everything.

Hi Domi,

Looks like you're very busy working on the engine! I didn't get Josh's hose kit, but I found a pic of the installation of my new DMC hoses by the heater valve.

37861

The 2 short (5/8" I.D. ?) hose lengths go as follows:

1 From the hose barb on the left engine bank (near the ignition distributor) to an aluminum tee
2 From the other side of the tee to the heater valve

The other side of the heater valve connects to a longer length heater hose of the same diameter, that connects to a hard pipe on the right side of the frame. (I can't remember which one as there are two).

The 5/16 I.D. hose connects the top of the aforementioned tee to the coolant expansion tank. A shorter length of this same diameter hose is used to connect the top of the radiator (right) to the barb in the pipe that feeds it.

I found the DMC website's parts diagram to be very helpful. I also labeled everything with tape.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

I'm trying to remove the two screw of the cross brace.
The screw on the right seems to unscrew easily but the one from the left doesn't coming, and I don't want to break it.
3815138152
The car sits on the frame for now, so no strength on these screws?
38153
Any advice to remove those screws please?

Domi
11-23-2015, 01:25 PM
So, I was able to remove the last screw. Below the screw, I have a square nut which I hold with a screw driver to avoid it to move.
A little bit rusty but I will clean them and they will be like new.
38196
Letís hope I will be able to do it again when I will be ready to put the cross brace back.
A few pictures, but sorry for the bad quality, I guess my camera is a little bit tired

Here are some pictures of my cross brace, this way, you will understand why I needed to remove it to repair it properly.

Hey Domi, I would recommend you get this plug for the pump:

http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=3781002&cc=1381069&jnid=513&jpid=1

I didn't really like the one that was provided. There is also an AC Delco branded one as well:

http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=340894&jsn=233

Just a point to remember, the vendor who sold you the pump bends the pump connector pins out slightly to accommodate his plug. You will need to bend them back so the correct plug fits like it should.

Found the answer by testing one switch after another.
One switch works properly, and the other one don't.
Once the jumper is in place the fuse blown. I bought them in 2015 from DMCH (installed now), so I guess the warranty is expired ????

http://dmctalk.org/showthread.php?3180-How-To-Remove-Interior-Door-Panels
http://dmctalk.org/showthread.php?7228-How-To-Replace-Delorean-window-drop-glass

The 2nd one has videos that go through how to take the panels off as well. I remember finding it kind of tricky to get the escutcheon out, and then get the bolts back in under it when I was done, but I can't remember exactly what I did that finally worked, sorry...

(I think I had to put the bolts back in by sticking them in the socket wrench and putting them in upside down with the door up. The video talked about some way to do it with a special kind of tape (double-stick?) that probably would have been easier than what I did...)
