Re: Legend Turbo Deloreans, factory and others

True on the etched thing,I admitted that on a earlier(vin) post,it 
was done with a hand(electric) etcher on the pontoon rear quarter 
that was fully covered by the Qpanel,it was done during 
disassembly,BEFORE I even knew about low vins,(or even the vin of 
570,I just had NOT paid attention to it,till way after the etching) I 
did it just as a history marker ID,or if it got stolen and/or the ID 
tags removed,(by a thief)since I was doing a ground up,and wanted a 
future owner 
to discover it/ know WHO did the work,kind of like the cave 
drawings/dates under the headliners.A very easy repair/removal for 
anyone who knows fiberglass repair--or could stay as it IS part of 
the history of that car.My intension was to make it into a very nice 
example of a Delorean,not as a history showpiece.I cannot comment on 
a low vin door switch,but I did switch drivers doors between a 81 and 
a 83 and they both fit just fine,and the 81 door fit and closed 
perfect on the 83,and as far as I know,is still working/closing fine 
as of the last(pic) view(early this year) of that car,the 83 door 
fit/closed fine on the 81.If you see my posted pics, the "newer 
Qpanels" fit just fine on vin 570.It is a BONUS to me to hear,that 
Chris is making it to orignal factory spec,vin 570 deserves it!! You 
must remember, Again IT WAS my car(at the time) if I wanted my name 
etched,where it did no visible harm,that was my choice.If I wanted 
smooth Finished surfaces on my car again my choice(which I had done 
on the red painted 82 Delorean that went with the deal,that was my 
personal choice,it did not effect structual integerity,or effect it 
for long term use.It is up to the owner to choose,How what or why of 
the car! Ater all you DO own one of the most altered cars! Now if I 
made it into a  hovercraft,or Hemipowered,or Monstertruck,now that is 
major alterations,90% plus DMC's are altered in one fashion or other.
Again is is up to the owner to make it as they so choose,I still say 
etch the vin number on the underbody(hidden inside and outside)(for 
recovery purposes)
