RE: [DML] Re: Doors

Hi Sandor,

You and some others are correct in the correlation to "droopy" doors and
colder weather. Basic laws of physics cause gas's like nitrogen to expand
with heat and contract when cold just like water and ice. Residing in the
great white north you and I get to experience this first hand every winter.
I've probably adjusted more DeLorean torsion cars than John's whole
production run of cars. Whoever said you must never adjust the torsion bars
must be from Southern California. Are you reading this Ed?  Sandor BTW thank
you for the "you know what" as I'm having a great time with it!

It is most likely the weather, not the struts.  I have brand new 
struts on my car.  They were perfect in warm weather, droopy when it 
got cold, and perfect again this summer.  Now that the weather is 
getting towards freezing they are a little droopy again.  Just the 
nature of 100 pound doors and nitrogen struts in cold weather.
