    I use Invisible Glass cleaner, seems to work fine for me...granted I've only had mine sitting in the garage so far....but worked on our Focus too..no film on the window.

    I use Sprayaway on my daily driver and never had issues with it. But it wouldn't touch the hazy film on the 37 yr old glass.

    I agree! You'd think that after 30+ years the DeLorean would be done outgassing.

    Use a hydrocarbon based glass cleaner to cut through the "haze". Regular glass cleaners (Windex like) will not cut the crud and smears it around. I learned that at a dealer. They had a spay can of glass cleaner and it did a great job. BTW ... Invisible Glass is a hydrocarbon based cleaner.

    Rebuilt my original door key using a 3D-printed button and an LED/switch that I borrowed from a cheap grill lighter.

    Drove it to and from work today. On the way there, the high pressure relief valve burped a bunch of R-134a onto the streets of downtown Miami. (Hmm, I think I know what the terrible squeak in the a/c system was now!)

    Thank goodness the window motors work... mostly. LOL

    Replaced the trunk light with something a little less primitive. Much easier to see in there now.

    With garage lights on and camera flash:

    With no other source of light:

    Replaced the stock 80 Amp Ducellier Alternator with the DeLoreanGo 110 Amp Alternator. Nice direct replacement for my stock unit and it now charges again.

    I also replaced the 1-3 Valve Cover gasket as it had a slight oil leak.

    this past weekend, I replaced my OE flexible brake hoses with Grady's new braided stainless hoses since i was due for a brake fluid flush anyways.

    I no longer have to all but stand on the brake pedal to stop the car, or have it pull hard to the right under heavy braking due to a starting/partially collapsed front brake hose.

    Installed relay update kit from DeloreanGo. Took the car for a drive and made sure everything was working. Everything did!

    Thatís so cool! The button on my door lock key is gone too. The light/battery are still in place, just nothing to turn it on. May have to look into doing this!
