What is the DeLorean worth in the United States? people are paying 50k for them over here.

Not really sure to be honest, I looked at prices a few years back even beat ones were selling for nearly 10k. no idea what the good shape or restored ones go for

Snow should be melted enough by the middle of the week to pull her out and get her on the road. I still have to pull the dash to replace the heater core + blend boxes, not sure if I want to tackle that quite yet. Pictures when I do!

To be perfectly honest this car should have been parted out to begin with, it sat for over 10 years before I started working on it and just so much was wrong with it (still is) but I've got so much time and $$ into it now...its hard to say no to it lol.

Have to pull the dash to repair the HVAC system. That's going to be soon, it's starting to warm up

Front suspension needs some work, the LCA bushings need to be replaced too

Thank you Matt for the excellent pics/write-up on how to change the front header.

I just hit a deer and mine is now damaged, so it looks like I will be replacing mine soon too. Your pics should really help me locate  all of the spot welds holding it on.

I will try to re-upload the pics later and restore them. Photobucket is really pretty evil, they have disabled bulk downloading of albums in an effort to discourage people from bailing.
I managed to download the pics from an old version of their app on my old phone, but they dont appear to be original quality. It'll have to do, though

Yes, I can see all of the pics just as they were originally posted.

I'm using this extension for Firefox

There's also an extension for Chrome too.

Chispoe, it worked.  You're the man and Rocketman, you're the man.  Great project and coverage.

Hard to say how long it will work for, but I've been using the extensions for about 3 month now.
