[DMCForum] The Resurrection of Vixen Continues...



Hi All,

Yes, believe it or not, the resurrection of Vixen DOES continue.  For those
of you who don't know me, I'm the stubborn fool who bought a completely
disassembled DeLorean back in 1999 and has been working (sporadically) on
bringing it back to life.  The whole ongoing saga is chronicled on my web
site,  <http://www.projectvixen.com/> http://www.ProjectVixen.com .

It's been about two years since my last update.  In fact, I have not touched
the car since the day after we got back from the Memphis show in 2002.  So,
with Pigeon Forge rapidly approaching, it's time to do the hard shift from
neutral to fifth to get the car done in time.  There's less than 60 days
until the show, and I guess it would be nice to actually -drive- the car a
bit before we leave, so that leaves roughly 30 days to get some projects
moving, which as you can guess, is not a whole lot of time.

My to-do list, while substantial, is a heck of a lot less than it once was:

ELECTRICAL
Install DELCO alternator
Put in dummy switches

EXTERIOR
Clean engine compartment
Glue down louver bump strips
Install hood trim
Install rear sway bar
Install Walt TABS
Refinish exhaust tips
Repaint all external black trim
Repair louver
Replace mufflers (I don't like the sound of the current ones)
Sandblast & brush finish
Touch-up engine cover
Touch-up trunk

INTERIOR
A-Pillar touch up
Clean trunk lid underside
Get new key cut
Install decals
Install door seals
Install right-side skirt/ground-effects
Mount rear view mirror
Recover headliners
Refinish steering wheel
Remount rear speakers
Replace door sills
Turbo gauge and vents
Window switches stencil

MAINTENANCE
Drain old fuel
Flush and fill fluids
Seal access panels in trunk

I guess I have my work cut out for me, eh?  As they say, "See you in Pigeon
Forge!"
