VIN 2327 From white to stainless

Postby Bvvarf » Fri Feb 19, 2021 10:41 pm

Hi,
I eventually bought a Delorean for the second time, #4500 ten years ago and now #2327.

Looking for the prices ... God above! damn expensive now, I regret having sold the first one !
So I turned to a "low budget" one, white painted with some "minors flaws"

The engine has seen better days,

and the chassis seems a bit rusted but OK

After receiving it, it looks like a kind of barn find : a lot of rust inside the car, a broken glass, a lot of fruits stones, dried cherries, four mice nest done with Chinese restaurant plastic bags, missing parts, wrong wheels, .... and this ugly white paint hiding a boatload of dents.

I forgot to say that the mice loved the cables in the electrical compartment :-)

It reminds me of the work done on #4500, very funny in fact.

So long story short, the car is a wreck, and I'm looking forward to restoring it (again)!

Last thing: -as usual- English isn't my mother tongue, excuse any nonsense that slips in.

What's going on with those wheels too? Same size front and back?

Hi all,
thanks for your messages folks!

For the wheels, honestly, I don't know the story of the car, but it's the weirdest combination I ever saw on a DeLorean. I'll trash them when once the engine rebuilt!

Hello,
some news from the barn, the interior is almost gone, and the engine is slowly dismantled

I do have two questions :
- Someone has already removed the car doors without disassembling the torsion bar, just by unbolting them?
- Do you have a good address to buy replacement cable for the loom, some cables have been chewed by the mice and I would like to repair the loom without changing everything. I still have some, but I forgot where I bought them (ten years ago).

Thanks ;)
