[DML] Re: DeLorean Frames

(Moderator's note: I read every message all the way to the end...and I'm a 20 year vet of railroading myself thank you very much! N-scale that is.  haha!  -Josh)

All this discussion about frame rust misses the other gremlin that
haunts DeLorean owners: Sunlight.

Which is a particular affliction of western (ie: Arizona) vehicles BTW.

Our windshields let in a tremendous amount of sunlight. Plays havoc
with the vinyl dash pad and binnacle. I purchased a dashmat from
www.dashmat.com to keep the sun off. Everyone who sees it assumes my
dash is cracked already. No, it is quite intact thank you very much,
and my dashmat is $30 insurance that it stays that way (I run them on
all my vehicles).

BBTW: I doubt the moderator will let this through on another thread
(let's see if he reads THIS message all the way to its end): Only half
the railroad locomotives in this country are equipped with dynamic
brakes. You won't find them on switch engines or most shortline
(older) units. A railroad locomotive isn't going to spin its generator
(which doubles as a starter motor) on 60 volts, no matter the
amperage. And much more than 72 volts WILL damage its onboard
electronics (you've got to be careful with the welder when jump
starting one). I worked in the railroad industry nearly 25 years.
