    You are 100% right! I seem to disassemble, clean, and re-install them every year at least once! It isn't that complex a switch. I should really find a simple replacement for it...there must be a dozen options out there.

    My horns have been misbehaving for ages now. I discovered they were pretty much past it, so I got some new ones and made some stainless brackets to mount them.

    Changed the oil/filter and wiped down under carriage. Next on the list: stainless steel fuel lines and the rest of fluids changed just because. Oil looked brand new coming out, so I suspect it was already done recently - doh.

    Went out to the garage today to check on the car, only to find out my courtesy lights on my doors lit up! (I store my car with the doors up/open)

    These haven't worked for years, I guess that's my car telling me to fix those lights properly now!

    Went to a local car show Saturday(170 cars), first DeLorean ever displayed in this show. My Brother-in-Law's Road Runner behind mine.

    Took the car to get registered. In the state of Florida you also have to get the VIN verified by the police. (I presume it's to do with theft prevention?) Had fun at both places. First, the cop was delighted to see a DeLorean in person. Then at the DMV office a guy asked if he could take a selfie with the car. DeLoreans are awesome: they make people happy.
    DeLorean status: It's complicated.

    glass cleaning

    Since I purchased my Delorean in March I have been trying and trying to get the glass clean. dirty glass bugs me. So I have tried cleaning multiple times and always streaks up. I discovered that using a clay bar on the outside of the glass works amazing!! Just spray and rub the clay bar then wipe dry with a microfiber, then clean with your favorite glass cleaner. amazing the dirt and contamination that was removed from the windshield.

    The hazy film on the inside is what bugs me.
