    Another update on 2203!

    Made a lot of progress since the last post. I've had the wheels powder coated, new tires fitted, new lugs, nos DMC center caps, Hervey's lowering kit installed, new steering rack, and ball joints. Even replaced the side view mirror glass. Just a few days ago, I replaced some faulty capacitors and transistors in the shift governor, shifts so much better now. Before, it would shift to 2nd late and never get to 3rd.
    I even took it to its first car show this past Saturday. It runs and drives great now! The only thing left to sort out as far as the drivetrain is some stumbling off the line. It misses out sometimes as well. I have a new distributor cap, rotor, and Magnecor wires to install. When I replace those, I'm going to clean the intake manifold and the VOD. I may even try to clean up the rest of the engine, it's fairly dirty.
    Photos to come soon!

    Here's a group of pictures from this weekend.
    The first photo is both my car and my dad's 62 Corvette Fuelie before we left for a big car show in my hometown, the second is really the only photo I have of my car at the show, so many people were wanting to talk to me about the DeLorean. The next few pictures are of my car in front of some storefronts and signs that have been changed to resemble the town in the 1960s. They're filming a movie called Hidden Figures here locally. And the last few show the rebuilding of the shift governor. You can see how the old capacitors have blown open. I replaced them along with the two big transistors and a few large resistors. I opted to cut the wire going to the governor and solder/heat shrink it back together. Each of the eight wires are individually soldered and heat shrinked, and then the whole bundle was heat shrinked again. Works just fine.

    Right now I'm working on converting an original Craig radio to Bluetooth. Photos and demo of that soon!
