    Exclamation NEW EVENT: DCF Tech Day on Saturday, October 1, 2016 in Oviedo, FL!!!

    Greetings DCF Members,

    Now that Summer is on the way out and the Fall car shows are coming up fast, it's time to have another DCF Tech Day! We had a great turnout at the last one this past Spring, and adjusted a lot of torsion bars that day. This time, we're changing it up a bit.

    Have you ever wondered what your car looked like underneath? Have you ever wanted to check or re-torque your TABs but weren't sure how to go about it? Do you have some small-ish jobs to do on your car that would be made 1000% simpler if you only had a lift? Well, my friends... for the first time in a good long while we're going to hold our Tech Day at an actual shop.

    With a lift.

    And a compressor.

    Our friend Bruce Coulombe of Coulombe Enterprises LLC has graciously offered to host this DCF Tech Day at his shop in Oviedo, FL. For those of you not familiar with Central FL, it is located just East of the Orlando Metro area:

    Sounds exciting I'm in! Going to either replace my seat rails or work on the passenger side mirror.

    Hi Brandon,

    Thanks so much for organizing our last tech day, it was indeed a very good turnout.

    Please sign me up for the upcoming one, if you can use any assistance please let me know.

    I'd like to look at the air/fuel mixture ratio and a brake rattle.

    Look forward to seeing everyone again.

    Regards,

    Maurice

    Hi Brandon,

    I plan to attend as well. I need to check and adjust my torsion bars, and then install new PJ Grady door struts. I think my driver's side is 1 spline off.

    If time allows, I'd like to take advantage of the lift and check my TABs. I have a new pair if anything is wrong with my originals.

    Let's hope for a sunny day!

    Thanks for organizing the event!

    It won't matter what the weather is, because Bruce's shop is AIR CONDITIONED!

    Good Morning,

    I just recently joined the group and bought my first Delorean last month. I plan on attending the event also and would like to replace my rotors and pads unless I am able to get them done before then. Also if anybody can possibly give me some advice on fixing my AC. Looking forward to meeting everybody.

    Hi Dan,

    Welcome to the forum and ownership! I look forward to meeting you. There is a wealth of very smart people on the forum to help you with your AC. I'm in the same boat, and I'm gathering parts for a detailed overhaul in the late fall.
    I would suggest searching for existing answers to your symptoms. Use Google this way... Search " topic X site: DMCTalk.org ". If you don't find an answer, just post your symptoms in a new thread.

    Cheers,
    Dana

    I'll bring my DeLorean and wear the new DMC FL shirt. I just had the new A/C put in my vehicle, so it'll be a nice drive there and back.

    It's been a year since I driven the DeLorean on the highway.

    Driver side torsion bar needs adjustments as well.

    Can't wait to say hi and look at your DeLoreans.

    I'm sure you meant DCF shirt...LOL.

    I would wear something else if you plan on doing any car work!
