[DML] Re: Fluids changes

IMHO it is not a great idea to drive to the Spring Social and attempt
a fluid change. What are you going to do if you break off a bleeder
screw? Or maybe blow a seal on the master cylinder. You won't be
driving home, that's for sure! Get your car ready BEFORE you go so you
know you will be driving it home too. The Spring Social is a great
place to learn more about your Delorean but only very minor stuff
should be done there. It is not meant that you limp in and expect
others to fix up your car for free. Besides, parts you may need may
not be there to do it anyway. Door adjustments, inspections, and other
minor stuff are about all that can be done in the limited time
available for each person. BTW one of the MOST IMPORTANT things you
can do to prepare the car is to CHECK YOUR TIRE PRESSURES!!!!.
Checking all of the fluid levels is also important along with all of
the lights.
