Re: [DML] Frame Flex? (weight of galvanising)



Hi Marc, all,

My friend recently galvanised his DeLorean frame - it came out 
fantastic, absolutely no warpage. I'm getting ready to do mine still -
 hoping to have it done in the next few weeks so that I can have the 
car back together for Eurofest... I'll update the website 
http://www.delorean.ie soon with what has been going on with my 
restoration.

Anyway, I thought you might all be interested in this fact - 
galvanising added 40 kg's of weight to my friends frame. This does 
not inlude any weight addition to the control arms, just the bare 
frame. He has decided not to powdercoat over the galvanised surface.

How do Lotus Galvanised frames hold up after a few years of use? Do 
Lotus use anything to protect the galvanised surface from 
chipping/scratching?

Regards,
John
