RE: [DML] Is dry ice under car harmful



Let me add a small caveat here, a smoke machine uses ethelene glycol, an oily fluid similar to radiator fluid.  Over time glycol can build up on surfaces, it will temporarily fog glass, can settle into soft goods like vinyl and carpet, and if enough of it collected on the brake pads and rotors, it would lubricate them slightly until it burned away.  For a one evening event the effects are likely minimal, but we are careful with fog machines going into permanent or semi permanent installations and generally try to take these factors into account.

Faded,



A better option hat I have used on display is a fog machine.  I used a timer with it to have bursts come out every couple minutes. Works great with no side effects. 



You can find these year-round at craft and hobby stores for about $50.

Dear fellow De Lorean owners:

 

I have agreed to display my car at a fund raiser for a school using the theme "Back To The Future" and they would like to use dry ice under the car to I presume simulate clouds.

 

I plan to open and keep the doors up and I am wondering if the fumes or vapor from the ice can cause any damage to the car? I imagine that some of the vapors will comes into contact with the car's underbody, brake and clutch line rubber hoses, stainless steel side panels, plastic of the bumpers and possibly even the upholstery of the open doors to name a few,

 

My guess is it won't be a problme but I may be overlooking something and I would appreciate any opion on this.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Faded
