[DML] Re: Peter Chant... the fella responsible for our epoxy?



Harold,
  
The REAL reason that ERM the(Elastic Reservoir Molding) or "Plastic Sandwich" was not used was that the engineers found that in a less than 30 mph rear end collusion,the rear drive-train,would become the front drive-train,meaning that the occupant's,would become/be wearing the drive-train,the reason that the VARI (Vacuum Assisted Resin Injected)process was used in conjunction with a full frame was,to give the Delorean the needed rigidity so that, the Black body worked in conjunction with the double Y frame,to give the needed strength to resist major damage in a 30mph rear collusion.Had the Delorean been built with the ERM process,it would have become THE most dangerous car to be in, surpassing the Ford Pinto,and Mal Bricklin's Subaru 360.  
   
  Hope that Helps,
  CBL
   
   
  
I thought this was the work on the "fiberglass" substitute that was 
never successful. The license plate holder is the "new technology" I 
thought - which explains why JZD had to stick with the original form 
of fiberglass for the D's body structure.
