RE: [DML] Re: clutch

We were talking about under the car. Yes on the fuel system it can be hacked
up as well as the electrical. But under the car is not that technical and
were not talking about James Billy Bob shop. Trans pulling, shock install,
ball joints install, brakes can be done by almost any shop and never be told
it's a DeLorean.

I couldn't disagree with you guys more, and I think it's an absurd
suggestion.  I agree that general automobile knowledge will get you far, but
Mark, you spent a LOT of time at tech sessions and on mailing lists to gain
the knowledge you have.  A run-of-the-mill mechanic will neither have the
knowledge, nor an interest in obtaining it for such a rare car.
I've seen plenty of examples of "professional" work on DeLoreans:  hacked
wiring, homemade fuel system parts, sloppy finishing work, and damage to
other parts due to a lack of knowledge.  Suggesting it is the same as
everyone's mom's Honda is just wrong.  The majority of cars that shared the
DeLorean parts are rarer than the DMC is!
I've never trusted a normal shop to do any of my work, and the ones that I
was forced to (for tires and alignments), I have been less than satisfied
with.  If you want it done correctly and reliably, a mechanic familiar with
the car is only kind.  I've found that my best DeLorean mechanic is me.
