Congratulations. Planning to strip my delorean back to stainless this winter. What's your plan to take the paint off? I was going for chemical first and if that fails soda.

i have a question...my interior is going to need some tidying!, however what is that pipe leading from maybe heater box is it?. is it a vac pipe? or water? if so what is coming out of it. i am puzzled by this photo.

Hi

i have had a few emails with Chris N regarding paint stripping.

he recommends not soda, but nitromors or other paint stripper (but test on stainless first!) and dont get anywhere near plastic, trim rubber! etc

Better if possible to take off panels? But that could be difficult.

mine is about 1/3 stripped by PO. Some door damage which Chris N may be able to repair.

first job getting it running, needs a pump etc.

tank been cleaned, new plugs and turns over.

fingers crossed she starts without too much trouble. 

what i will do is work on engine...while i paint on the paint stripper and leave it to work...

i am hoping it is easier than it looks!

I'd too would consecrate on the mechanics .....you can get it looking pretty later.

Flush plenty of clean petrol through the system first. You don't want to spreading crud around too much.

yes...will put all the injector hoses into jars and crank...new fuel filter, clean out the fuel feed, clean up the warm up regulator,,,but have a spare here.

also have spare elec window regulators!. if if they are gone that will be a cheap fix!. just cost plenty in plasters!! Big Grin

going to be great driving a Delorean again....

projects are exciting as you never know what work works and what doesn't, all part of the fun

Agreed with the above. Get it running etc first. Cosmetics come later.

Regarding your question about the pipe, i assume you mean the tube attached to the silver circle? If so, its one of a few vac actuators. What one though i cant say as they all look the same. Theres 2 or 3 of them under the dash/center console. I was under there earlier to find out why all i get is VENT and turns out i only have 2 vac hoses connected and its not even attached to the selector.

Here you can see one of those actuators. This is looking into the footwell where the center console ends.

   

Here you can see one above the other. Hope it helps you a bit

hi
thank you i did think it was likely a vac hose...not sure what is coming out of it!. any of you guys ideas?. wonder if the heater matrix is shot?. a Po has undone much of the interior, person i purchased off said he did not know why...thoguth maybe they were trying to get the heater matrix out, presumably is under the dash.

Guys i may be calling on my Delorean friends for plenty of under dash photos....

its straightforward when you take things off and put back yourself, the hardest is when someone has taken apart and you don't know where it all goes!!.

Thank you

Aint that the truth, I swapped Lambda sensor, plugs, HT, all manner of things which all needed doing trying to troubleshoot hesitation and stuttering and it was only when I found a black wire on my 4th Intake Manifold re-do which it turns out was the EARTH for the Lambda sensor so it had never been connected in my ownership. So I earthed that and its as sweet as a nut now.....

Hi Steve,

Huge congrats on the new purchase and as Chrispy said, it's great to see you back as a DeLorean owner again.

With regard to the panels, have you considered removing the front fenders and taking them to somewhere like Surface Processing in Dudley where they can just dip them to strip the paint off? That might save at least a few sessions with the Nitromors? 

I'll be at the NEC tomorrow too, maybe see you there.

Cheers,

Phil

Hi Phil

thank you for the email, yes glad to be back.....i should have realised years ago....and kept the BAE and spare seats i had!.

only sold 1621 as building trade went poor!.

yes i am considering removing panels. she has a bit of door damage (hoping Chris N can save it!), fingers crossed not too much more!.

has not run for 10 or 15 years.....but turns over ok, has had some wd40 down cylinders.

i will take out plugs and drop a little sowing machine oil down the chambers, check over the plugs...Tank has been cleaned but i will double check.

ordering a new pump and pick up system, aim is to try and get mot and looking reasonable by next July...not sure if i will hit that but will try...

looks like some nights in a cold garage again!.

how is spy100 going these days?. was at the NEC today but must have missed you..

Regards
