    As someone who takes huge pride in your own car, that means a lot a Michael. Thanks!

    I fixed my replacement LFF as best as I could. Personally, I doubt I'll ever feel as proud of something and it really wasn't as hard as it's made out to be.

    Old


    New Damage


    Straightened. Will have someone at work weld up the crack


    There's a bulge above the wheel arch, but it's really only noticeable at certain angles. I dont think I can fix it with the tools I have.

    Hi everyone - well, not something I've done today, but this week...

    I bought a DeLorean. Picked up VIN 5510 from Mike in Fall River, MA. If all goes well it'll be in an enclosed trailer next Monday, May 4th, and over a week or so it will travel the 3000 miles to Mill Creek, WA (Seattle area).

    It took a lot of coaxing to get my wife to be on board with this, haha!

    Good luck, is it a resto build or a decent one? Post some pics when she arrives. Every time i have shipped my car, i get all giddy and seeing it come out of the truck is always a total joy!

    Found the little end cap on the Carb inlet on the charcoal canister was crumbling apart - replaced it.

    So would that cause a vacuum leak? or just a smell when warm?

    I got a replacement auto trans dipstick tube installed. That seal on the bottom of the tube is no picnic to get in properly. Something about trying to centre something over and behind your head, that you can't really see and that is limited to how much you can move it around because of what the other end is pushing up against.

    Anyway, it's in. So that's new dipstick tube plus fuel filter and fuel lines all the way from the accumulator to the distributor on the engine. Still need to clean-up my air deflector shields and wow are they filthy!!

    Here are some pics including what the auto trans dipstick looks like in the tube with the end of the dipstick sticking out. For reference if ever wondering where the level is compared to that seal.
