    They were 15 shipped to the US. Much cheaper than what they sell (sold) for here. They come without adhesive, so I used the super strong 3M mounting tape. They also sell the bumper letters for 20.
    That is a good price. Ordering..

    Drove it to work. Almost got run down by a giant Brinks cash truck whose driver was taking pictures of me. I thought those guys were supposed to be unflappable?

    Took a few minutes when I got home to install something I've been wanting for years....



    Thanks, David!

    I like this cover, it's definitely quality, and it fits the Delorean perfectly.
    It was $73 at NAPA, after tax and AAA discount. Size B.

    Just ordered on of these things. 1258s about to become a daily driver...

    I had got one also, amazon had them for 53.
    Mines a daily driver also, be extremely careful with hot tail pipes.
    They go through this cover like butter.
    I grazed them while installing the cover after a drive once.
    The holes are in places that don't matter and I can patch them, but still it was brand new only had used it 3 times.

    Oh well. Too late now. Thanks for the info about the tailpipes, I'll make sure to be careful.

    Good advice. I always leave my cover folded up halfway up the louvres until the engine cools off.

    Fixed window

    When I bought my D, driver side window didn't work. It wouldn't open. I just hear the clicking noises. So today I took the door apart and found a broken plastic part between tube and motor. I added a metal brace (took me about 2 hours of trial and error) and now it works perfect. Saved $300.

    Before

    drill a hole

    metal brace
