    Update on Iron Man Delorean NEW FRONT END WIRING DIAGRAM

    Attached is diagram of the Stock Delorean Wiring in the front bonnet area of the car. This shows exactly where the wires are located. An interesting find is the hidden
    channel inside the fiberglass frame that the wiring goes through!

    Now you know where to look for the actual wires

    New steering wheel with controls

    We have been considering a new steering wheel with various controls that many high end cars have. The question we have had was how to they transfer the control information from the switches. One thought we had was the use of a microprocessor and a single wire data bus. I know that one after market paddle shifter product does do this via blue tooth.

    However, in talking with one of my AMC cars friends at the AMC car show in LV yesterday, he said he was working on a similar upgrade for the Javelin. It turns out that Chrysler and other car steering wheels use a ribbon cable that floats
    around the steering column when you turn the wheel. These flat ribbon cables are expensive to replace >$100. Anyway. this information makes is possible to use a model multifunction steering wheel in the Iron Man Delorean.

    Now we just have to chose a steering column.
