    Reopening old threads seems to be current de jure, so here we go. Michael's descriptions and at least the diagnostic steps here lead me to choose this particular thread.

    My original Motorola does ~14.3. I had understood this to be the normal DeLorean range.

    Finally got around to installing the DM dome light dimmer relay. This was a bit of a challenge - you have to remove all the relays access pins, and on my car the purple wire

    How could it? As has been mentioned, there hasn't been some a competition in many years. And the number of cars that come up for sale (at least in public) that are candidate concours...

    I think your Command Strip idea will do short term, just until you can get it to such a person. But the job is not that hard for anyone who's worked on the car that you might be able to find at your...

    Personally, and having done it twice on different cars, it's a real PITA. The vinyl isn't always in great shape, and my panels were held down on one car with additional screws and sealant. Still,...

    Mine was originally rivets, which doesn't seem to be an ideal choice for plastic. Anyway, I put in screws, as per the picture, and the largest washers I could fit.

    I did a similar repair on the...

    This may not help, but there's multiple causes of steering play. The most usual is the firewall bushing, which is a relatively easy thing to replace, and should be obvious

    Well, I'd debate that. Yes,it's often true that an owner will have very extensive knowledge of a car *especially* if they've done a restoration, but it's also common that they do not - e.g, owners...

    Yeah. Well, I already see people asking 80K for cars. Whether they will sell for that is another matter. *However* historically it's rare for marques to appreciate for long periods of time - history...

    Phew, well back on topic.

    I just learned (and probably well known to many), that DMC offers a 6 month/6000 mile warranty on their cars. That's exceptionally generous for any used car (which of...

    As it happens, that's exactly the car I'm restoring now. But realistically, it's going to be months yet until it's ready and likely you'll find a car well before then, but you never know.

    Nice! Of course, things have changed a lot since. Whilst the guide is obviously excellent, I think it's better to characterize it as a "VIN inventory" with some other stuff. A comprehensive

    There are people that'll swear up and down to not finance, but plenty who have done it and wouldn't have been able to otherwise. I was lucky enough to not need in both cases. However, there's a...

    Well, the early advice in this thread was spectacularly bad and/or nonsensical. And the word is "Concours". It's weird that DavId T has enough attention to detail to win such an award, but can't...

    Ugh. The further you get in, the more you realize there is to do. As usual, progress is made every day, sometimes I get a rash of things done, but usually it's very slow.

    Because they can. As you probably know, mark-up or some kind or another is pretty common from mechanics. A customer can at least be certain it's the correct type for the car without running the risk...

    For most automotive wiring, especially outside the cabin, you want to try and avoid electrical tape; it doesn't last. You want to use harness tape - you'll find this much more satisfactory.
