    There are already wires going through the bulkhead for the ECUs behind the driver's seat. Admittedly, since I did an EFI conversion those holes weren't used anymore, but you may be able to run your...

    Ah, I should have mentioned that -- these bulbs seems be more commonly used in reading lamps, so they only had them in cool and warm white. They had no colored versions at all. I used matching...

    [Electrical] LEDs for Special T Auto third brake light

    Not sure how many people have Hervey's third brake light (HCSL, CHMSL, whatever you want to call it), but I recently switched out my tail light bulbs with LEDs, and decided to do the ones in that as...

    I think the problem was just that people read it as wanting to change it for the sake of changing it out, not that you just want to replace worn parts with more sustainable ones. I wasn't sure which...

    I'm not either, but shops can be expensive and take a lot of time, and I'm impatient. Over the last 15+ of DeLorean ownership I've gone from "I'll let someone else do it" to "I can replace an...

    There are some options towards the back of the car, in so far as getting wires through the bulkhead without making any new holes:

    I have a new manual for everyone -- the Renault MR215, which is the shop manual for the 4139-4141 automatic transmissions (the DeLorean uses the 4141). It's a useful supplement to Section G of the...

    No problem. My friend is confident he can reseal the transmission. He's not confident about replacing the clutch packs. Before he switched to classic cars he worked at a Mercedes dealership and...

    Oh yes, Section G is on my reading list.

    That shaft does sound like a good candidate for the leak. I'm guessing it's part 103581, which is of course out of stock at store.DeLorean.com . ...

    I was thinking the dye test for after it's all back together again, just to make sure we actually fixed it.

    I definitely agree that whatever is leaking is what needs to be fixed. I assumed it was...

    Just to be absolutely clear: I am only slipping when I'm low on fluid. I wind up not checking it for too long, it slips a little (or doesn't move or moves too slowly on it's own when putting it in...

    I probably have done some damage to the clutches, since the trans has slipped on me due to the incessant leaking. I do immediately put fluid in when that happens, but by then it's been running low...

    I was only planning on driving it into the ground if some of the expensive hard parts had been damaged. I'd rather save it.

    I drove 200+ miles in the last week, and checked the final drive again...

    It also depends on what quality youíre looking for. My simple ABS prints are just functional, and I donít care as much about them being pretty, and if I do I can sand the down later. Iíve printed...

    Yes, much thinner. It easily poured out of the drive, and what I got on my hands felt thin, much more like ATF. Actually having new gear oil to compare it to made it obvious. The new oil took forever...

    [Transmission Auto] Significant automatic transmission leaks

    I put a quart of fluid in my automatic a month ago. Yesterday I put in another full quart when I noticed it slip slightly when cold. That can't be good.

    That worked pretty well, CriticalB. It dims it down quite a lot, but I can still raise the brightness a little more to compensate. In daylight you can only see the blue digits shining through --...
