    Yeah, those wheels sure are sharp. I guess what I'm asking is if I wanted the wheels you have, would I need to custom order that finish with John or is that just the way they come if you order silver finish?
    You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a DeLorean and that's sort of the same thing....

    Today I went on a 100+ mile trip! Was going to add my antenna etc but decided to go on a drive instead. Flawless drive. Great day!

    What have I done to me DeLorean today? Had a DELOREANNIVERSARY!

    I had the car out last night for another beauty drive. The weather here has been unseasonably warm for October. I'm coming up on 2,000 miles this season and that'll be about the 2nd or 3rd most in a year since I got it. Which was exactly ten years ago today.

    Here is 3937 on the day it arrived, October 10th, 2007:

    And here it is last night, closing the book on my first decade of ownership:

    The car came with a list of problems as long as my arm. Now there's hardly anything on that list at all. A gas station guy came over and said how immaculate the car is and he was really impressed with it. I think I am finally too.

    Drove it to the racetrack and back last weekend
    for a work-related race. It got pretty filthy from all that driving, about 200 miles so I Cleaned it up today.

    Also I think I may have fixed the one loose rocker on the passenger side after taking off the valve cover and doing another valve adjustment. Now it's time to pull the engine harness apart and do some wire rerouting in preparation for my new exhaust system.

    My VIN:    831

    1. Recovered and installed the T piece of my headliner.
    2. Removed window and installed a bolt and washer on front track.
    3. Reinstalled the door panel assemblies.
    4. Tested window and door lock operation with my door switches.
    5. Adjusted my front hood hinges downward.
    6. Adjusted my driver's door torsion bar. (Was sagging since I last adjusted it with the door panels off.)

    Going to drive the car tomorrow while Houston has its one cool day. When I receive and install DPI's AC hose set, I'll probably begin driving it more often.

    Got my order from DeLorean-go today. Aside from the needed clutch kit, I got the binnacle flex PCB, the screw in otterstat pipe and one of the new window switch connectors.

    Now I will look for a higher temp otterstat switch so it will serve as my backup on my electronic otterstat. The switch that came with the pipe is a 92-87 C unit.
