    Got my DMCH seat covers back this week and installed the passenger side. I found the rubber bottom was split so I patched it with some flex tape and tensioning straps. I don't think the flex tape really does much other than improve how it looks, but with the straps installed it feels like a different seat. I saw some other folks said it was uncomfortable, but I used 4 straps and I think it must distribute the weight a little better.

    As for the seat covers, I like how they look, though in the picture they look almost too wrinkled. Must be the lighting b/c they're not that bad in person. I'm not sure how I could have gotten them any tighter without ripping the seams or my own skin.

    Incidentally, if anyone is looking for some electric blue seat covers with matching door trim panels and steering wheel, check back in the parts section next week. I'm going to try to sell them all as a matching set, unless someone just wants to buy the trim pieces for the backing boards. One looks like the original cardboard, but the other is plastic.

    Usually an upholsterer will ad a 1/2 layer of fresh foam to the top of the seats to help compensate for shrinkage of the old seat foam buck. Without it you can get the excessive wrinkle look in the outer panels. The center panels are supposed to be wrinkled like that though.

    My DeLorean overheated for the first time of ownership last week. The fans decided they had enough and weren't coming on when the engine reached temperature. After some troubleshooting, the otterstat seems to be the problem. Got one on order from DMCMW. Hope to get her back on the road soon. Didn't seem to be any damage, steam or strange noises, just the temp gauge spiking.

    Same thing happened to me a couple years ago, otterstat failed. I ordered 2 so I'd have one as a spare in the car. You may want to order another for a spare, just in case.

    Carry a small jumper wire as well, this comes in handy in a couple of failure modes (RPM relay for example) but it can help get you home. Make up something with two male spade lugs, about 3 inches long.

    Did my first angle drive replacement. Pretty straightforward, hardest part is getting the that huge wrench into that tight space. I wonder if anyone makes a stubby 1 1/4" wrench. Switched to a one piece cable and changed the gauge cluster LEDs to the color I wanted (white, not 'incandescent yellow').

    My car came with the original speedometer in a box of parts and a 170mph speedo in the car. The complaint on the original was that it bounced, but when hooked to a drill it was fine. Test drove it last night and it works perfect, even calibrated correctly as it's very accurate at most speeds. Very happy. Also lightly 'refurbished' the 170 speedo. Need to make a for sale thread soon to get rid of that and some other odds and ends that are starting to pile up.
