[DML] Re: DOT 5 Brake questions

Probably too late if there is any damage to be caused - I doubt if 
you will notice anything or cause any damage though. I put silicone 
fluid DOT 5 in my D clutch system years ago to keep moisture out of 
the slave cylinder. Worked great - stopped going through slave 
cylinders too. The Valvoline SynPower brake fluid is a low moisture 
type of fluid and synthetic base. It appears ideal for the DeLorean 
brakes and clutch.
