    Question. Is it OK to use regular jack stands on the body jack points or do I need some sort of an adapter that fits inside that metal recess?

    If you have the jackstands with a flat pad on top, those are ok, if we are talking about the four jack points on the underbody. If you only have the jack stands with the two-finger channel, you should have a 2 x 4 between the stand and the body or else the stand will dimple the underbody.

    Does anyone know if there is a car VIN search services that gives info of previous owners? I used Carfax on the last couple vehicles and noticed that they no longer give you names and addresses of previous owners. Just the state it was registered in.

    LOL...if any group can tell you the history based off the vin, this one can!

    PS, search the DML archives(if they are still up), I got a ton of info on mine that way.

    That's DeLorean Mailing List BTW

    You can check to see when/if your VIN was ever registered on the DeLorean VIN Registry

    http://www.citizenkidd.com/dmc/pages/vin.aspx

    Or you could use Google to search the DML as Michael suggested as well as DMCTalk. Maybe a previous owner was an active member.

    This came with my blasting booth. Do you think it is safe to use? Or should I buy glass beads?20211111_085105.jpg

    Well, I am still a bit in shock but our prayers have been answered.
    We found a usable frame 6 miles from my house!!!
    It needs work but I think it is definitely usable.
    The odds of this situation occurring is mind blowing. I live in a town of only around 4000 people but there still happens to be someone else in town that owns a DeLorean. And, oh by the way,...he just happens to have a good frame sitting put back. For $1000.00

    When I pray for DeLorean frames, I like to picture my Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt. 'cause it says like, I want to be formal, but I'm here to party too.

    'cause I like to party, so I like my Jesus to party.
