[DML] Remaking Fenders.

It is strange that this discussion comes up all the
time on the DML.

Has *ANYONE* had a problem getting a body part when
they need it?

Unlike other orphan cars, we have the advantage of
being able to take a fender off of a junk car that has
been exposed to the elements for 20 years, and clean
it up with some elbow-grease in no time at all.

If it was necessary, and cost effective to reproduce
any parts I am sure it would have been done already. 
People are not going to throw away their DeLoreans
because they cant find a fender.
