    My VIN:    3937

    I keep the inside of the car pretty neat and tidy and don't often have anything sitting in the coin tray. If I grab a coffee on my way somewhere though, I'll often throw the change into the coin tray. It tends to slide around a lot though when that's the only thing in there.

    I MacGyver'ed up a solution on the weekend for that though with some of that tacky rubber shelf liner stuff you put under your cups or mugs in the kitchen. The roll I bought was about a million times too big as the piece I needed was only the size of the bottom of the coin tray. I put a couple of small bits of double sided 3M tape on the corners to hold it in place. And it matches the black interior quite well.

    Fitted reversing sensor at the weekend. Great no drill solution.

    Yesterday finished up installing the new radiator, fans, and condenser. Today I pulled out the old AC hoses and installed new split hoses rated for R134A. Tomorrow I'll add the new OT, compressor, and accumulator, gas it up and finally see what it's like to have decent AC in the Mississippi heat!

    Took my DeLorean to the NORCAL RADWood show (80s and 90s cars only) and won the Most Raddest of the show award!

    After more than 2 months of work, which included cooling system, brakes, electrical, Wheel refinish, stainless/paint restoration, suspension work, etc, It was worth it.

    Added the rest of the new AC components and installed new bearings in the AC idler pulleys. The system held a vacuum overnight, so I charged it up. It's blowing cold air, but after a 30 min drive in 85 degrees I'm still breaking a sweat. I think I'm going to have to take it to a tint shop and get clear ceramic tint on the windshield. All the other windows have a dark tint and the interior door panels are comfortable to touch in direct sunlight. The dash and binnacle, on the other hand, are scalding hot. I can put my hand between the dash and windshield while I'm driving and the air there is hot. I think it's cancelling out most of the AC cooling.

    Radiator and fans seem to be working great, though. Temp is steady, fans are quiet, and the car doesn't try to stall with the AC and headlights on!

    Added under-body LED accent lighting. LEDs are mounted on aluminum angle and can quickly be removed or installed.

    Like most Saturdays, I drove it with my iPod play list piping through the Craig....a sweet piece of heaven. This car is like no other I've had for attention it garners. Last weekend a mint Ferrari 308 GTB was directly behind me on a downtown street with tons of pedestrians. While I was looking in my rearview mirror admiring the car, the people on the street were pointing, smiling, and photographing my car. Man, I felt bad for the Ferrari driver, as he had to watch this unfolding in front of him all the way down the street.

    I picked up VIN 2282 from DMC Midwest on Thursday after it had a few things done to it post-purchase. Big thanks to Mike and Jason at Midwest for their excellent work and Stephanie and Suzy for their outstanding customer service. Also, thank you to Dave for his invaluable advice. About halfway home, I hit some heavy rain. Probably the first and last time it sees rain under my ownership. The car performed flawlessly for the 60 mile ride, and I surprisingly did not get pulled over despite my bogus BTTF plates. The real ones aren’t in yet. I also gave it a good wash before parking it in its new garage space next to our Mustang. I took it out for gas later that day, and some firemen in a passing fire truck were snapping pictures and video of it getting gas ha. The next morning I left town for a week and miss the car already!
