[DML] Re: New Delorean production....



The ONE thing that HAS to change *MUST CHANGE* on a new production 
Delorean is the BRITISH SPEC. wiring harness...if there is one thing 
that brings the Delorean down to being known as a POS in the world of 
Cars...(in all factors including the BTTF Movies)it is that Damn 
troublesome POS wiring harness...it MUST...and I mean IT HAS with a 
BIG POINT on this....to BE BROUGHT up to American SPEC....2007/08 
levels...without that...it will just be a new/old version of the same 
old grief..with the same old melting/burning/fire hazard/old 
gremlins/no start/no run/wiring harness,that we all have known and 
have a love/hate relationship with.
