Re: [DML] Newbies to Deloreans and the DML



I would like to add something.

Type something as simple as "DeLorean" into google. 
Or type whatever your question is into google or at
least a few key words ..EX: "DeLorean Binnacle
Repair".  I have found so many websites, and I mean
old archaic ones at places like geocities where there
ARE no frames on the webpage, but there are perfect
instructions on how to do a repair for the car.  Print
print print.  Make a notebook.  Don't assume you'll
find that old old OLD website again sometime -
especially when you really need it, and don't assume
the website will be up for you to reference when you
need it *cough* JORDAN *cough* =P j/k.  I myself have
5 manuals.....parts,work,tech...than the service
bulletin manual and my own homemade repair manual of
every single last little thing I can find on the
Internet.  Any aritcle - pictures or no pictures, list
format or paragraph, 3 lines, or 30 pages - I don't
care.  If someone's done a repair, there's nothing
better you can do than at LEAST read it and get
familiar with it.  Sometimes I'll have at least 3
articles documenting the same repair (taking the
binnacle off the car for instance - I found Jordan's,
Travis', and one off another website in the UK). 
Sometimes (and this didn't happen with the
aforementioned example) you'll find articles with
missing steps, or extra steps or extra
hints/tips/knacks that could save you alot of trouble.
 For example, instead of using 3 three inch extensions
on a 3/8" drive to get to a certain bolt from one
article, another may say to purchase a "ratchet
wrench" (new wrenches with boxed-end ratchets) and do
directly underneath the bolt you desire to reach.

I don't know - I'm starting to digress, but don't ever
discard information that you assume you already know
(unless it's something REAL obvious like taking the
air filter box off or something).  Even than, that
took me 3-5 trys to nail down ;).
