Vin 6511 - Dan's 2nd Delorean

Postby Dan 6511 » Sun May 11, 2014 11:15 pm

Well as my D is currently bobbing around the Atlantic ocean I have made a start stripping the engine out of my Volvo.

I got the engine out and took off all the volvo crap not needed for the delorean and cleaned out the valley which was full up with mud and crap. The block is sound thankfully, no rot down the deep holes :)

Experience might make this an easy job for you! Not for us, mere mortals

Great stuff. Have you got a date for delivery into Southampton? Are you using a shipping agent to handle the faff at this end?

I'm actually looking forward to this new shitter arriving in a sort of sado massochistic way to be honest :kiss:

Great Progress Dan,

As for the choice of engine.........

If you were going to build one of these would you have chosen this engine?

Good video skills though. No Spielberg material, but still nice.
