Re: [DML] Re: undercoating



This is a great topic 
Ugly undercoating
 
YES even I agree with Dave that the cars that have no undercoating are more  
shall we say awe inspiring and it was for that reason I brought a non  
undercoated car to the last concours.
 
BUT
and this is a big BUT
 
IT takes a lot more to keep an undercoated car looking nice than it does a  
non undercoated one.
 
I spent much much more time cleaning Gigawat vs any other non undercoated  
car.
 
In my case however the undercoating is preserving the zinc plating much  
better than a non undercoated car.  So for that reason it has its  advantages.
 
As far as daily drivers I see very little difference in rust of undercoated  
vs non undercoated cars.
 
I think they tried something that did not work
The 83 that I am driving now (not Gigawat and maybe the raffle car) had  
undercoating and it had rust.
 
Its repaired now and the whole frame redone with POR 15 tinted to match the  
epoxy and it looks awesome so I am happy with that and the car will not be  
re-undercoated.
 
I undercoated the last raffle car and now wish I had not although  it came 
out real clean the shocks and springs looked a lot nicer shiny than  the dull 
undercoat color.  
 
But that can be removed.
 
Anyway this "attitude" towards undercoated cars I have been championing the  
cause for quite a few years now and I am glad to see I am now not alone.
 
All said 
 
The DeLorean is unique and these weird versions make the car  interesting  
despite the fact that to the average viewer they are all  the same

I had 11 at one time and I could tell them all apart just by looking at  them
All the same but all different.
 
See you in Houston
Maybe  Undercoating will truimph this time LOL
