RE: [DML] Re: Rotting Deloreans



  Indeed, that brings up a curiosity:  I think in my 1938 Buick Shop Manual, it says for extended non-driving times, to OVER inflate  the tires (they, like the DeLorean, are low-pressure tires).   However, in my 1978 Suzuki 550 Owner's Manual, it recommends  DEFLATING the tires by ~1/3.  Why the difference? I found that rather interesting.     Drive Stainless   (on PROPERLY inflated tires!)       Robert    VIN 6924

> I had Deloreans that I stored and COVERED----INDOORS from Day ONE--- for a way longer period of time....the net result---perfect flawless frames/dashes/ seats/OEM Tires/no seized parts etc---my point NEVER EVER store a Delorean(or any nice car}outdoors even if it is for "that minor" repair that you will get too...the end results is as Dave found out.Always plan for the worst.For example after driving my Bricklin for the Summer of 1994...I drained out all the fuel changed the oil and Filter,ran the Carb dry and then even rebuilt it,waxed the car real good,drained out all the anti-freeze. .. then put a one off custom fitted car cover over it in my Garage...little did I know then but 15 years later it is Still sitting in my garage just as clean as when I first stored it.
