[DML] Re: Was Turn signal switch - Car Display Option(s)



Rich and List,

Almost every DeLorean owner has to struggle with either
displaying with the doors open or closed, hoping to keep
unwanted people out of their DeLorean.

I have heard of and observed the "switch break" scenerio
several times over the years, and although I have not had
it happen to me, I have helped others with the repairs.

The display option I have been using for a long time is to
only have the passenger door open, since there is less to
break when someone gets into the passenger side seat.

Of course, you still need to watch out for the people who
lean or grab onto the top corner of the windshield, to
try to get in or out, but at least most switches are safe.

I usually put a gray or black duffle bag on the driver seat
(filled with towels I use to clean or prep the car) and I
have not had anyone try to move or sit down on the bag.

Keep displaying the car, but try to keep it safe as well.

Later,
Rich W.
