Re: [DML] Replica



Matt,
  
  4300 was actually driven betwen 1-2K miles.  There is an article  on 4300 in a recent past issue of DeLorean World.  Not sure which  issue, but I have the issue at home

they were actually a spare set of panels for the first two incase 
something happened to them.  Well, nothing happened because 4300 and 
4301 were never driven.  Except for the passenger side door, they 
did not have that one in gold when building 20105.  So they plated 
another door and the gold plating on this one is actually darker.  I 
don't know how the gold on that door would hold up compared to the 
rest of the panels.  But looking at it you can definately tell it is 
different.  Also, if I remember correctly, I believe 20105 actually 
has the rough pontoon surface of the early cars.  But don't hold me 
on that.
