    Hi there,

    I have VIN correct dark wheels. If it helps to determine the closeness, here is a picture of the wheel and the front fascia next together.....

    I believe lighter colored wheels were used starting with VIN 1884 and up.

    I don't know if you've looked but DMC has several options available and will do a lot of custom colors. Still torn between glossy black with machine cut or chrome for my car.

    When will you be in Atlanta with your car? I'm hoping to have mine back down June 12th.

    Clearly the answer is to do one side dark and the other light.

    Then one side will always suit your mood

    You can't rotate the wheels properly anyway.

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    I will likely have my car at the GT Ramblin' Wreck parade, as far as keeping it in the ATL area, probably won't. I'm too paranoid about my nicer cars.

    Looks pretty close. I'm kinda leaning towards the darker ones now. However the lighter colored wheels are more well known...

    When is that parade? Im also paranoid about mine and having to find a place to live in the no man's land between atlanta and birmingham is being a pain.

    The parade will be during homecoming which is October 22-24. The parade itself will probably be on Saturday.

    Here's some more photos 2203.


    Thanks!

    Congratulations on your acquisition and welcome to the "fun". Mine came off the line 19 after yours (2222). She is also a black interior automatic.

    1954 Ford in the last pic? Looks like some classic experience around there.

    Wow that's neat! I found out VIN 2204 is in France.
    That's my 1953 Ford Coupe. Fun car to drive. A DeLorean is a radically different kind of "classic" haha.

    Last week a friend and I started tearing into 2203. First thing we did was find a replacement for a missing banjo bolt for the Jetronic system. We were able to get one at the local Toyota dealership. After removing the wheels, I decided my car is going to need all new brakes, tie rod ends and probably shocks and springs. I'll probably replace the shocks/springs with the Eibach set. I want my car to sit lower. One of the major things that was concerning me was what was lurking in the gas tank. 2203 has been sitting since 1996 and the old gas had turned to varnish and shellac. Took a few hours but my friend and I were able to siphon out all of the old gas and clean out the gunk inside with acetone. I don't know if the old fuel pump is still good, not going to risk it though. My next step is to redo the fuel system. Are the pumps with the built in sending unit recommended? Does the accumulator usually need replacing? I do know I'll need to replace the filter though.


    Thanks!
    Jayce
