[DML] Frame-up restorations/refurbished cars (was: Value of a "restored" DeLorean)

First, here are some photos of a remanufucatured car in progress here
at DMC (Texas). These photos were taken a couple weeks ago, but show
the frame being assembled. Note that this started as a bare frame and
was built to this point. Attendees to the DMC (Texas) Open House event
will be able to see this completed car, as well as the next one to be




There is a difference between a restored car and a remanufactured car
here at DMC (Texas) as far as terminolgy goes and the distinction is
important to note.

A "restored" car, as we use the term, is a client's car that has been
brought in for service work. The extent of the restoration is limited
only by the client's budget :-) and be as deep as a frame-up or simply
a mechanical restoration or a cosmetic restoration. When looking to
purchase a "restored" car FROM ANYONE, ask to see the receipts for the
work that was completed, they should be obtainable either from the
seller or the company that completed the work (for cars done here,
that requires the seller's authorization).

A "remanufactured" car (we formerly referred to them as refurbished
cars) are DeLoreans that we have purchased, stripped to a bare frame,
(sandblasted, powdercoated and chemically treated the cavities) and
thn rebuilt using new parts (NOS, replacement and reproduction) from
the inventory here. Each car varies slightly in what is replaced (we
won't replace a quarter panel that has no damage for the sake of
replacing it, for example) but as the photos show in the link above,
and as open house attendees will see, the work peformed and parts
replaced is extensive.
