[DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive

I have to disagree on the spare,my friends 83 Lotus DOES have a full 
size spare in his trunk..it is NOT a Donut spare.
Also i am going by my experience in Dissecting deloreans apart
the frame is a very mild steel and very thin at that!!  The epoxy 
coating makes the frame look very thick,but you would be shocked at 
the thin Gage material that was used !!...in fact in some areas it is 
less than the thickness of a Dime!! the A-arms were engineered to a 
very minimal standard,the rear trailing arms were very poorly 
engineered,The wiring was poorly engineered,almost every electrical 
Motor that operates something in the Delorean were of sub-par 
standards,even the taillight circuit boards were faulty from day one
The AC was always a problem,including switches,the Cooling system was 
faulty from day one with all the tubes and Hoses,the water pump was 
NOT engineered to handle a rear engine car.The Fuel system was VERY 
poorly engineered,in more ways than one,all switches were very sub-
par etc..and that is only the tip of the iceberg.To make it 
simple,you could count on one hand the things that were engineered 
correct on the Delorean by Lotus engineering.
