RE: [DML] BTTF removables

Yes, you can build a complete time machine replica without

a SINGLE permanent alteration to your car.

I can help you with a lot of this stuff.

The whole back wall (Flux Capacitor, etc) can be put in and taken out in a minute

and then just plug into the cig plug.

You can set the Time Circuits on the dash, the Plutonium Gauges into the glove box

and the drive switch onto the center console.

You can attach the upper console using bungee cords to the top.

I did it this way for years just fine.

The inside is pretty easy.


The outside is a little more difficult, because you need to remove your louvers

and they can be a hassle to re-align.

However, if you are only going to use the rear deck for a shot time like a rare

car show or something you can build it out of wood.

As an experiment I built a complete rear deck out of 1/4" MDF sheets I bought from Home Depot.

I used staples, hot glue and paint and they looks very good.

I even built my rear bulkhead on the inside of the car out of this wood and painted it chrome.

It came out perfect.

Have a look at this video:

Everything I have described was used in this video.

I can help you with all of this stuff on my website

When I get my hands on a DMC12, I'd like to play with making it look like 
the one in "Back to the Future". At the same time, I'd like to have the 
car look more or less stock. The means for doing such a conversion seem 
to imply that the stuff is mounted permanently. Has anyone here 
considered what would be required to be able to quickly (ie, in an hour or 
two) be able to add or remove at least the exterior dress-up stuff?
