    My VIN:    6895

    Car made it to DMC Huntington intact!

    1300 miles, one broken angle drive at about 300 miles out, one dead right rear taillight bulb!


    Thanks all!

    We took it into wine country on the way in Paso Robles. Has anyone else had a Delorean at a winery before???

    Great news!

    Damn angle drives! Are these ever going to not be an issue? Shannon has had incredible luck with his last replacement, and Josh had the key idea to utilize a GPS unit.

    I used to live just south of Paso, in SLO. There are two owners (that I know of) in SLO. I know the owners of a winery and have brought my Delorean there.

    Awesome!

    It's cool to see the stainless among the vineyards.

    All work was done by Delorean Northwest.

    DMC-CA is checking it out now, but the following are key items:
    - AC Vent Center Console isn't working..seems like the door is not actuating
    - Driver's side seal is whistling air at above 40mph, the entire trip I endured a very loud seranade of street sounds if I didn't have the tollbooth window open.
    - Valves are ticking so it most likely needs work there.
    - Angle Drive Repair
    - Changing water pump from original to a newer one even though cooling is intact and working
    - Alternator is original and leaking so it needs a replacement
    - Running stock fuel lines so thats the biggest ticket item to have replaced to braided stainless


    Those are big ticket items for me on the car and it would be pretty much a safe daily driver. It is right now, if I'm honest, but I'm seriously worried about the fuel lines and the alternator more than anything else.

    Fuel lines and alternator would be my 2 biggest concerns as well - especially if there was a Ducellier unit in there.

    I hate it when my alternator is leaky.

    Joking aside, glad the trip went well.

    Final damages update after the grand Tour, DMC Cali is working on it now:

    - New angle drive
    - New water pump, air flow control unit
    - stainless lines for the FQ valve
    - new engine mounts
    - Had an exhaust system leak that was Ďtickingí so thatís being sealed
    - new Fuel injection stainless lines
    - new fuel accumulator kit (cracking lines)
    - new fuel pump and sewer (the one that was added last year was coming out of the gasket and looked a bit hacked in which is scary as work was done at DMC Northwest.
    - New tailight boards and alternator
    - I still had the original relays so those are being changed
    - new drivers side door seals
    - the ac cabin fan assembly was also replaced which was the ac leak issue.

    And that is where I stand, 6 grand later.
