[DML] replacing the fuses



The fuses do wear out...when they are chronically overheated.  My #7 fuse 
disintegrated when I tried to pull it out.

I've also cleaned them before with abrasion, but this makes them thinner 
(and thus looser).

In essence, the DeLorean electrical system was under-engineered, such that 
additional resistance from tarnished or loose connectors is enough to make 
things melt.  Cleaning the electrical connectors and ground points is part 
of regular maintenance.
