Re: [DML] Wings-A-Loft



I installed the whole kit last month... I replaced a Zilla remote 
attached to a Delorean Motor Center door launcher (however, for ease of 
installation I kept the DMCGG launch solenoids.)

Short answer: I love it!! The launch is better than Zilla, in that the 
2-door launch is immediate (Zilla takes up to 3 seconds of button push 
to activate)

I did replace the door lock solenoids with the actuators... easy install 
and works great, and installed the trunk popper. I did have to replace 
my non-standard trunk latch spring, as mine was way too strong. I also 
installed the window control module which I LOVE. The windows now 
automatically close when I turn off the car, or open 1/2 inch if the 
interior gets too hot when parked outdoors. How many times did I forget 
to close the windows only to remember AFTER leaving the car? that is a 
major pain... But no more.  Also, just one momentary push on either 
switch fully closes or opens the window.

I also installed the remote engine start feature. It works well, but I 
can not imagine really using it in real life. Still, fun to show it off :-)

Installation took about three weekends. The directions were 
straightforward, but finding some of the wiring points inside the car 
took some doing. You'll need the car's wiring diagram and possibly the 
service manual. I took it slow and easy, just to make sure I got it 
right. The crimp-style fasteners included with the kit were a pain for 
me to attach to the various wires, so I did not use them, and instead 
used press-on wire tap-ins like this:

In all, a very well designed kit. Works as advertised, and I think well 
worth it.
