About DMC-81
I am restoring my DeLorean as a hobby. I am having a great time and I am slowly learning about the car. My restoration goal is a "mostly correct" car, but I am addressing known flaws or weaknesses so that I will have a reliable show car.

Car: A one owner, un-molested and complete 1981 DeLorean from Georgia, with manual transmission, black interior, gas flap hood, windshield antenna, dark wheels, and 26K miles that I purchased from Tony at DMCFL.

Interior: DMC door seal kit, DMC leather seat covers

Parts refurbished: Mechanical: brake booster (using 2 DMC kits) cooling fans, steering rack, brake calipers, front upper and lower control arms and ball joints, tie rod ends, rear upper control links, and many parts and fasteners re-plated. Exterior: front and rear fascias and engine louvers repainted using the correct paint codes, side mirror glass, Interior: Craig cassette stereo repaired and modded, OEM door lock system repaired and modded

Performance/Improved Parts: Mechanical: DMC fuel pump and sender module, DMC SS fuel lines, DMC SS brake flex hoses, DMC SS clutch line, DMC stainless steel muffler heat shield and aluminum radiator, lowering springs, DMC EU adjustable shocks, Marty Maier adjustable rear lower link, McKeen Solid State RPM Relay, DMC LED door light and exterior bulb kits, SS coolant header bottle, SS caliper pistons, DMC ceramic brake pads, DMC 8 mm spark plug wires.
