[DML] Re: Rotting Deloreans



We've lifted literally hundreds of cars by the underbody - it's really the only way to work on it with a standard shop lift. It's what the designers intended. I've left them hanging literally for weeks if not months like that in my garage at home  (before I pulled the lift out). The fiberglass is pretty stout stuff. 

We were pretty worried about the frames we've been discussing here and avoided walking under the cars, and there wasn't much holding the engine in, but nothing ever fell off. Other than lots of rust and epoxy. And the rear suspension.

The only one that ever fell on me was at a tech session where Rich W took all the bolts out without telling us (actually he thought they were just "loose".
