Reason is, the DeLorean is a classic and therefore has specific needs.  The
only way to ensure it will be restored back to it's former self, is to use

else will do.

If the insurance company has a problem with that, remind them that it is
stanless steel and the next closest vendor to fix panels lives in the UK.

Good luck!
