[DML] Re: DMC Midwest Update & revised date



We're moving the "Grand Opening" date to Saturday April 28 due to a 
couple of conflicts. So re-mark your calendars. More info later.

And now for a shop update - the inventory got here on Monday, and with 
the help of Ben from Texas, and local helper Bill Schafer, we got an 
entire 54' semi full of DeLorean parts unpacked and put away in one 
day. In 10-degree weather. It now looks like a miniature Houston with 
the crates of doors and fenders reaching to the ceiling, as well as the 
smaller racks of bin boxes in the loft. 

Within 24 hours we'd had our first over-the-counter parts sale (a 
windshield and a fuel system rebuild) to a local customer that we'd 
never met before. Word must be getting around. We're officially opening 
the doors Monday February 5, but we're actually keeping longer hours 
now. Not many DMC facilities are manned and accepting deliveries on 
Sunday afternoons, but we did just that this past weekend when 
Fedex/Passport dropped off an out-of-state car (#12 in the shop) for 
service. 

An interesting note - we decided that we'd better inspect the entire 
two crates of of OEM windshields since the crates appeared to have 
quite a few miles on them (Germany to Ireland to Columbus to Houston to 
Chicago). Pretty scary for Julee and I - moving close to $20k worth of 
glass a sheet at a time! We found one broken one, but I was very 
pleased to see how good they looked overall. With all the noise over 
the past few years about so-called delamination I was worried about 
what we'd find. 

We should have the website up shortly with some currrent photos. 

Dave and Julee (still tired....but looking forward to working on cars 
again, instead of buildings).
