RE: [DML] Gold Cars

How much gold would be needed to plate a single DeLorean?  Since it's
atomized and the layer of gold is so thin I would think a few ounces(?).  If
someone where crazy enough to drive it, what kind of wax would they use to
protect the finish (from rubbing off)?  Couldn't they have made a gold fleck
paint on the nose/tail to match the gold plating?  I'm so used to the grey
and black DeLorean interior the brown/tan interior on the gold plated cars
and the prototypes look a little bit weird.  

Here's an interesting project (may have been done already) build a kit to
retrofit HIDs onto a DeLorean.

All 3 sets of panels for the gold cars were made at
the same time!  Why would one be better quality than

Interesting story, but the DOC had the guy who made
the gold cars speak to us at dinner.  Apparently, they
were tight on time and one of the doors was not masked
before they plated it...  and that door has gold
plating INSIDE as well.
