    My speedo looked suspicious, so I knew I had to fiddle with it.




    Only time will show if this thing work.




    Got my hands on a fiberglass binnacle, since my car came without one

    Could not resist the price on some new girling rear shocks. Colormatched a pair of spax front shocks with a old volvo colour (80)





    More cleaned parts.

    Cant wait to see the finished product.

    Also, whats the backstory on the car?

    Got it 2 years ago:

    That home electroplating job turned out great as did the underbody cleaning!

    The replacement frame arrived this summer.







    Not without it's problems.





    So I sendt it off to straitening, many workhours later I got the call, it's ready. Took it home again, but that thing did not look ok so it was returned back. A couple of weeks later it was finaly ok.

    Found the nearest sandblasting company and delivered the frame. The day after I got a call, the guy gave up, saying it would take days to get rid of all that epoxy. At least the rust spotts where gone.










    Then I grinded clean every sign of cracks in the epoxy, and the rust-prone areas and painted it myself.




    So finally I have a frame to work on. Just took 2 years and a lot of money.

    Amazing. This is a true testimony that every abandoned DeLorean out there can be saved!

    I knew the car was too good to let go when I found it. I imported it to Norway (it was exported out from Florida, US, along with a bunch of other project DeLoreans), put up for sale, and Geir ("Slammer") bought it directly from me. I wouldn't have sold it to just anybody. I sold it because I knew Geir was the right guy for this job. My mission is to get more DeLoreans restored and back on the road.

    It has taken a lot of time and money, but still worth it. These cars are so rare and will only increase in value. Congratulations to Slammer, looking forward to seeing the car back on the road in due course.

    Started to assembly some of the finished parts.




















    So this is where I am today. Winter temperatures up here under the north pole will stop most of the work until springtime.

    Hopefully I can do something with my seats during wintertime.

    If the weather is good to me, I'll try to get the engine and trans mounted before I snow in
