[DML] Re: Does anyone else have one of these? Blank VIN Plate



Patrick,
It's a rare item indeed, it was on my last Delorean(vin 00570)as for 
one thing it is made from SS,while the later production ones are made 
from crappy tin materials,that could easily get damaged or even rot 
away!!(if exposed to the elements)
Like other stuff on the Delorean,as production went on,cheaper 
materials,and more cost affective materials were used some examples 
were: door weights,hoods without lines and gas door delete,cheaper 
radio,leather delete on the dash,windshield antenne/fender antenne
(labor savings),seperate door pull strap,dual key system,The more 
expensive early owners manual,tool kit/tire jack ect ect.I am sure I 
missed out stuff,that became/was downsized,the big one of course was 
NOT to use a SS frame(only one car(that I know of) was factory made 
with the SS frame)(see James report somewhere on the DMCNEWS site)but 
you get the picture.
