Well, that would of course be too easy. Yes, it did occur to be to do
so, but the night I discovered it went out I didn't feel like dealing
with it when I got home at midnight, and assuming it was simple I
figured the next time I was out I'd just pick one up at an auto parts
store. Well, if a DeLorean is even listed in a store's data base, it
would say "no parts available". So after two stores I go home and look
in the Handbook, and no trade numbers, just wattages. So then I look
around online, and could not find a thing beyond a DMC part number.
Yes, at this point I could have removed the bulb to see what it was
because I'm going to have to do it anyway, but from experience I know
that the correct part is not always the part you find when you remove
something off an old car. There's always the chance "Bubba" was there
at some point before you and rigged lord knows what. I sleep better at
night knowing that I've confirmed I'm getting the correct part from a
legit source. That's why I looked in the handbook, and searched
DeLorean sites that I have confidence in. I'm a little too thorough,
even when it comes to light bulbs.
