[DML] Re: Rotting Deloreans

If you are talking about a NEW frame --maybe--and for SHORT term storage... You can do that...but in 2009 on a original frame that has typical use(ie:wear and tear) and is not a trailer queen--and storing for more than the winter season...not a good idea...Again in 2009 that is the areas that are prone to have rust or weak from stress from years of use,thus the weakest areas..again the best bet is junk tires/rims.It's a HEAVY car(the black body mostly) with a light duty frame(mild steel) with all the weight in the ass end and the blackbody.Heck the frame is so light on these cars that one person can lift it up(stripped of all components, I have!!)
