    The reason I use PayPal is to pay for an item with out having to do this.
    I.E., my contact information and desired shipping location is already stored with them.
    Sorry, no sale.

    Thank you Tod. I hadn't checked this thread recently as it had seemed dormant and just spotted this now. Doh! I'm trying to stay in the shop more too. Jessica and myself appreciate your comments and the feedback. Keep the thread alive!!!

    Hey George I'm sorry but our site doesn't always work as intended and we may be switching providers soon to hopefully have fewer gitches. We have sent you parts before and you can always call (800)350-7429 to report a glitch or to order it direct.
    It's a shame because I think you would have really liked our gas springs better than whatever you're using now.

    Hi Rob,

    I have a set of your door pistons that probably go back to the late 1990s. No complaints at all and they lasted a very long time. Are the replacements similar or improved somehow? It never occurred to me (until reading this thread) that they were not all the same.

    At this point I need to replace all three sets although I have a backup set for the engine compartment from Pittman DeLorean, which I imagine are very old as well, if they are even good anymore. Last time I worked on the car it was a pain propping everything up.

    Thanks

    Bill

    They will be shot from sitting all those years Bill. Most "Gas Springs" as the mftr calls them leak out at the rate of 5% a year but ours have a double lip seal so should do better than the average. I visited my manufacturer for a tour three years ago and they supplied me with numerous prototypes built to my specified charge and dampening ranges and incorporated a then new dampening feature which slows the speed at the top of the travel. I determined the best setup for each of the three gas spring types needed for the Delorean using these different prototype settings. It's all contained in the first part of this long thread if you want more info and we've sold many hundred's of these units with many happy customers. I even have door pistons designed to let you just swap from a summer to a winter piston to avoid seasonal T. B. adjustments in colder climates for those who use the cars year round.

    Hey Rob. I did end up buying my set of lift pistons from you, (I had to call instead of using the website), when you had the introductory special. I Love them.
