    Thank you for your comments. Finally some good press on this forum. I just may stick around!

    If you want a positive review of your items, I can't say enough good things about your tail light boards.

    I had the transmission cooler you offer on a previous car and would love to order another one.

    I'm also VERY impressed with your angle drive, though I have no personal experience with it.

    Thank you Chad. We do still carry the cooler fin kit (#111488G ....$34.95). It may seem pricey for aluminum finning but it's a custom order of 200 feet IIRC and it was a substantial layout of money. The margin is so thin I may raise the price soon but in case anyone here is interested I'll hold the price for now. The good news is it drops the operating temperature 20 degrees which I read will double fluid life and lessen the load on transmission seals and clutchs. As we know the DMC automatic needs all the help it can get on the reliability front.

    +1 on the Grady tail-light boards. My car came with them equipped and they are great. Had to modify them for the UK rear fog-light requirement, but understandably not a standard feature for such a small market!

    Look at this guy flaunting his Pep Boys louver struts AND PJ Grady S/S louver latch plate!



    I have DMCH louver struts, and they don't open nearly as forcefully as this. In fact, I can no longer use my SpecialT engine-cover-hook because it will bring the whole thing crashing down.

    It looks like some of you guys are using these struts already. The video says they're Strong-Arm 6148.

    Pep Boys does stock them! Note 'S' at beginning of part number.

    Doors have been saggy for a little while now. It is even worse since we are in the middle of the snow storm of the century. We are predicted to get .5 inches of snow tonight.

    I just emailed the eBay seller I purchased these struts from back in 2014. Hopefully in a few days I will know how good that lifetime warranty is.

    I just got a response from seller via eBay messaging. They are sending me a new pair of door struts on Monday. They didn't even ask me to send my old ones back, however I would have gladly done so.

    Providing this company never goes out of business, I may never have to buy another door strut for the Delorean.

    21.50, I have Grady's struts but I'm tempted to buy a pair "just in case."

    I was going to buy another pair at $21.50 even if they didn't honor the warranty.
