[DML] Re: Flatbedding Delorean - to cover or not to cover?



Hee are the things to know when flatbedding a Delorean:
NEVER PULL ON THE LOWER CONTROL ARMS, use the loops on the frame.
Don't tow with the back facing forwards, you will damage the sunshade
Make sure the trailer is wide enough so you won't damage the tires.
A cover will just flap and beat against the car and scratch the stainless.
Stop once in a while (more often when first starting out) and check
the tie-downs, trailer hitch, lights, and trailer tires (lug nuts and
pressures). If you are stopping overnight with the trailer it is a
good idea to make sure the car is locked and covered. I like to
trailer the car backwards, better weight distribution, but I use an
enclosed trailer so wind is not an issue. If you have problems with
the trailer swinging pull the Delorean as far forward as possible. An
equalizing  hitch with sway control is the way to go but you are not
going to have that on a rental truck. Remember to leave a lot more
room to stop and stay away from 18 wheelers, as they go by they will
"suck" you over into their lane as they pass. Take your time and be
careful.
