[DML] Re: Carburete a DeLorean at DCS'12?

I don't think the host hotel bargained for automotive work to be done in their parking lot. In all fairness, before offering to do something like this you should at least find out if it is OK with the host hotel and the people running the event. At the very least they may require a Certificate of Insurance. This is not something you "spring" on anyone. It needs to be prearranged properly. I remember when you worked on your car at the Porsche dealership at a DMA event you spilled fuel on their freshly paved lot and left a stain. That is NOT what the DCS show will want to be remembered by the host hotel. With the proper precautions and approval it could be a good idea.
