[DML] Re: Powdercoated DMC frames experience anyone?



Have you considered a galvanized frame as an option?  My frame was 
galvanized in the early 90's by the original owner and survived 
Kansas City in the winter for over 10 years as a daily driver.  Is a 
great article in Delorean World on the frame change out.  I do not 
know the issue number and issue but here is a link to the article 
entitled "rust never sleeps" http://www.roberts-
