Re: [DML] Bryan Pearce's Frames

My thinking on "Bryan Pearce's frame?"

For you info, a decade plus ago, I had given strong thoughts to  
purchase the Pearce's Stainless Steel Frame when the chatter was  
strong within the DeLorean community and I believe this was a time  
period before you came on the scene?  So, I am not really "silent on  
the subject," I think you were not around back then.  The going price  
for the Pearce Stainless Steel Frame was about $6K and I understand  
the going price is now $8K or more?  Anyway, the reason why I didn't  
do it back then is because I didn't know if I was going to keep my  
DeLorean and plus I just didn't have the time and the hassle to have  
the frame shipped to NYC and to have Rob to make the transfer.  So,  
have I addressed your point of interest on Pearce Frame?

Also for what it's worth, two summers ago, I had thought about  
purchasing the Stage 2 (or 3 if it was available) as well.  I was  
going to make the appointment and drive my DeLorean to DMC of Houston  
as to have done.

In my way of thinking, between the two combinations, it would be a  
better DeLorean.

Now let, me ask you a question.  If I were to have your conversions  
done, would you have a warranty and insurance backing up your  
conversion as product and service?   I do believe that Mr. Bryan  
Pearce and DMC Houston have a warranty and insurance backing up their  
products and services?  They would be foolish if they didn't.  So,  
with their warranty and product liability backing up their products,  
I WOULD NOT hesitated to purchase and install either or both.  And I  
still may do so in the future!!!???

You are claiming that Dave and I are giving you "grief."   No we are  
not, for you are giving yourself your own "grief."  We are just  
chiming in on your postings.  So, you don't  want grief, don't  
post...  It also seems to me Dave and I are not the only who give you  
"grief" or comments that don't sit well with you.  So, on a personal  
note and my advice to you is to learn the principle of "avoidance."   
I used and practice that principle when necessary to keep my sanity  
and no "grief."
