Re: [DML] Hosting a huge archive of delorean stuff for robert AKA DMCVEGAS



Which articles are you having trouble viewing? On my XP laptop, they 
all appear just fine on my side. However, I will give fair warning 
that at home I use strictly Macintosh, so zooming on on the TIFF 
files is no problem for me. If nothing else, try opening them inside 
Quicktime viewer, and see if you can zoom in with it.

Big, if not HUGE thanks to Matt Stits for hosting this. I met with a 
few DeLorean owners in Houston in '05 who wanted me to burn some 
DVDs for them of what I have. But finally, they've got access to 
what I have, so take a look around.

Now, first and foremost, I do NOT claim ownership of a good number 
of items contained within. Lots of what I have I got from other 
people's websites. Especially the articles, the videos, as well as 
the technical documents. I'm no Eric Bauman (EBaums's World), so I 
don't take credit for simply passing things along. If it had a 
watermark on it, it was left in place, and most of the time, you can 
pretty much tell where I got the things from. And if you don't, just 
ask me, and I'll point you off in the direction of where it came 
from.

Now like I said, this is all stuff that I collected off the 
internet, and from friends as well. As an example, Matt who is 
hosting the site, took the photos of the 24K AMEX car in Reno (I 
don't think I ever scanned and uploadted my own personal pics), and 
he got some amzing photos INSIDE of the car that had never been seen 
before.

Other things that I have in the collection in the Misc folder as 
well are DeLorean related, even though they may not look it. These 
documents are for customizing the drive train mainly. I have guides 
to rebuild the UN-1 Transaxle, as well what gearsets for the trans 
are available, based upon what car they came out of (quick segway: 
after Lotus Employed the UN-1 in the Esprit, they finally convinced 
Renault to beef up the trans. So later models are listed as being 
able to takeon up to 400 bhp with no problems, but only one car 
matched the ideal gear ratios of the DeLorean).

There is also a big section of turbo charging that I have too (not 
DeLorean specific per se, but a DAMN good starting point on 
learning, designing systems, as well as showing what can be done 
with the D), and some info about the PRV. I believe I have some info 
on what vehicles it crosses over too, but not all my stuff was 
online. However to show you how interesting some of this stuff is, I 
had no idea that there is equipment available to convert the same 
PRV that we in our cars, for use in military-aeronautical 
applications...

Now one last thing though. There are some fonts and Icons available. 
The fonts are True Type, so everyone can use them. However, the 
Icons are for OS X only. So unless you're on a Mac, you won't be 
able to see them. But if you can, they look almost like photos.

In the mean time, I hope everyone enjoys!
