[DML] Re: New delorean owner - some questions on repairs



Heh, heh...welcome to the wonderful world of upgrades and repairs :)
I purchased my vehicle several months ago (original except for tires 
and stainless overflow bottle), and am fixing/upgrading little by 
little. You will get a lot of different opinions (as well as mine) of 
what you should do first. If you can contact and get together with 
other owners, they are best resource to look your car over. 
I believe your first concern would be safety issues (tail lights, 
reverse lights, brakes) and ensure all the recalls have been 
installed. Next, the known problems that will eventually bite you 
such as relays, fan fail, and replace all the fuses at the same time. 
Clean, and keep the old ones as emergency spares or buy new. Next 
tackle the suspension/ride issues, and finally the cosmetic (eyebrow 
guards and new headlights). Since your tires are the original NCT's, 
I would consider that a safety issue. Just a thought.
