[DML] Re: Spacing

Thanks for all the replies as they were helpful.  It would appear 
that the "problem" is somewhat universal and not just isolated to my 
car (6452).  Now that I know this, I guess that I feel better.   

It does look a little strange and I have determined that 
the "problem" is clearly related to the mounting of the license plate 
holder.  It is simply not "centered" between the two back 
taillights.  I actually measured the taillights and they were very 
close to the same on both sides.  It actually makes sense as I am 
sure that with the different holders (European and USA) they would 
have been added at the QAC as stated in one of the posts.  Using this 
scenario it is easy to understand how they could have been "off 

After spending some time on my car this weekend I also discovered 
that that the "t-panel" is a bit different in that while the doors at 
the rear corner are identical on both sides, (they barely touch the 
back corner) and the spacing between the doors and the "t-panel" are 
also uniform, the spacing at the joint on the rear quarter panel is 
not uniform.  Not sure why?could be the way the quarter panels are 
attached or it could be the universal explaination that it is a "hand 
assembled" car.

These cars really were "hand assembled" and I guess that a close 
examination will yield other unique situations.  Usually, when we get 
together with more than one Delorean we seem to concentrate on the 
mechanical issues and I guess that I have not paid attention to the 
construction details.

In my case, the next serial number 6453 is also located in San Diego 
and I guess that I should pay more attention to that car.
