DeLorean Restoration

Here I will guide you through the complete and comprehensive frame-off restoration of a DeLorean, VIN #3281, with all of the gory details. My goal for the end of this restoration is to have an extremely nice, drivable, and reliable example of a DeLorean sports car. This car is not intended to be a concours competitor, so I will be replacing common failure-prone components with the standard community-accepted upgrades in order to achieve greater reliability and/or performance. However, I am a purist when it comes to DeLoreans, so there certainly will not be any wild modifications performed.
