[DML] Heads-Up Display & Washing the car



After a week of pretty good rain washing the salt away, DeLorean season 
has started in MN  :-)

    HEADS_UP Speedometer:

I drove the DeLorean today for the first time with a GPS heads-up 
display and I must say that "I like it".  I have not positioned it yet, 
I just set it in front of the binnacle and it worked fine. When you 
project it onto safety glass without the supplied film, there is a ghost 
image (one from each glass surface) but it is not really distracting so 
I may not install the film.  My only complaint is that they use too good 
of a power cord and it is a bit stiff.

My speedo gives me troubles.  It reads about 20mph high at 55 and is not 
very stable. Some day I'll get it resolved but even then I will use the 
HUD.  When I'm driving either the wheel or my hands on the wheel block 
the speedometer.  The HUD puts a nice sized LED 2 digit speed display on 
the windshield where a slight eye flick makes it readable.  These can be 
had on Amazon for about $100 (put it on your Mothers Day or Fathers Day 
wish list)

FWIW ... a while back I wired a 12Vdc outlet on a coiled wire to use 
with GPS's and the like.  That way I don't have the power adapter 
sticking out of the cigarette lighter outlet and in the way. Eventually 
I'll wire another that is switched to be used for the HUD.

    WASHING THE CAR:

I washed the car the other day and was not satisfied so I tried using 
white vinegar and water and it seems to work really well.  It cleans 
well and the slight acid nature of vinegar seems to remove that slight 
grey corrosion that SS can accumulate. So the SS seems brighter than before.
