Star Automated heaterbox project
Posted by: Reinsch - 15 Jun 2019, 18:21 - Forum: 7 - Heating / Air Conditioning - Replies (1)

Hello members,

I thought I will share my project in regards of automation of heater box. As my project car #4454 is undergoing resto-modification, all parts are reviewed and upgraded if possible.
I explain most of the details in video attached.
if you want to know prior to watching - I did standard renovation of box, but also lined it inside with silver tape to increase efficiency. On top of that I've added electric stepper motor to control air mixing flap (no more mechanical cable). Direction flaps are still based on vacuum actuators, but those are connected to air solenoids. Heart of this project is Arduino microprocessor that will be also gathering data from few temperature sensors, to achieve demanded cabin temperature (this will be set by dial knob).
For testing purposes I'm using touch screen, but vehicle control panel will have knob. More in video:

  Bracket under dash
Posted by: Boz666 - 12 Jun 2019, 12:24 - Forum: 3 - Electrical - Replies (3)

Hi all

I know this is a big ask but can anyone get a picture of the bracket that holds the wiper control module and buzzer in its location under the dash. I have got under there while fitting a steering column bush and this bracket is just hanging under the dash and not fixed to anything. I have tried stuffing it into various locations but none look right.

Any help is very much appreciated.

  Roof T-piece
Posted by: Boz666 - 02 Jun 2019, 08:53 - Forum: 8 - Frame / Body / Interior - Replies (3)

Looking for some advice on how to tackle some damage to the roof t-piece. No idea when/how this happened but when I removed the piece it was clear that this has been off before and looking at the damage I would guess the sun screen cover was repeatedly rammed into it. I can get a new piece shipped from the US at some expense but the right people must be able to straighten this. Someone not too far away would also be good, I am in Cheshire. The marks on the metal are blood, the edges are like razor blades.

  What is the part called
Posted by: Boz666 - 23 May 2019, 07:14 - Forum: 8 - Frame / Body / Interior - Replies (3)

Hi all, I have just acquired vin 6642 and I am going through the repair items and the bits needed for the UK registration. So far I am doing ok, I have built two kit cars in my time and most of the jobs needed appear well within my skill set. My question is about the fill pieces at the corner of the dashtop, I don't have any or know what they are called or if they can be bought. Piccy included to show which part I mean. Any help very much appreciated.

  WTD - Stock silencer/ muffler.
Posted by: Rich Hanlon - 22 May 2019, 09:45 - Forum: DeLorean Cars or Parts For Sale or Wanted - Replies (5)

Hi folks - as per the title really - am on the lookout for a decent secondhand stock exhaust silencer as mine has cracked through in several places on the rear.  I have welded it in the past but my present stripdown has shown that the crack has run again and it is now cracking around the rear rivets too.  Later ones preferable but anything considered!  I'm near Derby but can pay any courier fees or pop to collect if it's reasonably near.

Many thanks, Rich

Not sure this has already been posted but would love some expert's opinions. There's lots of photos and a video showing the underside (and its lovely rust).
