    Well, yes, Exactly. For now, both my cars have original (or apparently so) fans, and until there's a compelling reason otherwise, or I somehow run out of
    other things to fix, they'll stay like that....

    Oh, Ron. Now you know why I like precision.

    Anyway, shorted the otterstat, and fans run. Although it does sound a bit like something is bouncing around in one, although it's not really something...

    Well noted. On my driver DeLorean there is some fading, and if I ever decide to improve them, this is likely what I'll do.

    However, the project is a different story. I've already painted the...

    Yes, it's the boring black one from DGo. I was gonna get the stainless one (same price), but the look didn't work for me.

    Finally got the rear inner panels off. The rear speakers, as usual, are trashed. Also, endless dead spiders. The bolsters on these pieces are of course loose too (as per the early VIN design), so I'm...

    Sorry, dude. I have a copy of DeLorean World from 1995ish, and the classifieds have cars ranging from 18-25K. Whether those cars were sorted or

    I'm confused too. He bought a Lambo, why does he need so much handholding with a DeLorean? Perhaps this is where his expectations are at, in supercar land.
