[DML] Re: factory painted car,

As a point of fact the factory was involved in the painting of
Deloreans. There is a procedure that was circulated on a method of
painting the stainless steel. There was a test panel that was in the
wharehouse in Ohio with several patches of different color paint on
it. There were plans to offer a "color change" to owners. You would
bring the car to a dealership and pick it up the next day with
different panels bolted on, trading in the old panels for painted ones
(or a different color). There are no "known" factory painted cars.
Just about all Deloreans that are painted can be accounted for by
either the selling dealership painting the car in the hope of selling
it quicker or a body shop after repairing body damage with filler and
painting the whole car to cover it up.
