[DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive



Hate to say,but the truth of the matter is anything Lotus engineered 
for the Delorean was of inferior design OR made to minimum standards 
or of inferior materials, including wiring/fuel/mechanical 
components/front suspension/rear suspension/ Brakes/window operation/ 
cooling fans,and their operation/door locks//frame/ even the simple 
things like door handles/heater controls/headlight switch,shifter 
boot/ suspension bolts/ball joints,circuit boards(taillights/ auto 
tranny) were inferior...interior was made of inferior plastic or 
vinyl,very little leather for a "leather interior"and crappy stuff at 
that..and even the location of some components was poorly done such 
as putting all the major wiring systems/fuses right above a enclosed 
battery putting out sulfuric acid fumes..bad for the electrical 
system.. with NO ventilation to remove heat or fumes from the 
enclosed major wiring area...even the rivitnuts were of inferior 
design(as you all have found out)
Few things were done right, the few done right were the stainless 
steel/black body/door torsions bars/plastic gas tank(but NOT how they 
engineered the fuel pump into it)just the tank and the location.There 
is a lot more I missed,these are just some of the items that I could 
think of that came to mind.It almost seemed like Lotus wanted the 
Delorean to fall flat onto it's face in a huge ball of failures.
