[DMCForum] Re: New guy after some advice.



Thanks guys,  What I'm looking for is a project that needs a far bit of tiding up, but a
basically solid car.

I will do all the work myself so I will save on the labour.  I have Just completed
rebuilding a Lotus Elise and I'm now looking for something else to get my hands dirty.  I
have rebuilt 4 Lotus Esprit's in the past, converting two of them from left hand drive to
right hand drive, so I'm up on the whole removing body from chassis thing as well as
ripping interiors out and replacing them.

I must say that from what I have seen the De Lorean look's very much like an Esprit S3 in
both interior and how it fits onto the chassis so hopefully I wont be too out of my depth.

I just need to know of any that are for sale and the best places or people to goto to find
one.

Any help would be grateful

Dan

P.S. Are the Parts and Service Manuals available still ?  Has anybody got them in
Downloadable format like PDF ??
