[DML] Re: Mystery capacitor

I totally agree with Bill on a ground bus mod. Last time I was in my console, I got tired of trying to imagine how good the ground connections could possibly be and decided to change the rules- I ran a green #10 stranded wire directly off of my battery's negative to a bus bar mounted deep behind the radio. I re-routed every ground I could find from the console area into the new bus bar. No more guessing on how good my ground is in that part of the car.

I've never seen anything similar on domestic cars, even during the heyday of AM radio (about the only place you saw a capacitor then was on ignition). Had the DeLorean ground system had been better designed, I wonder if most of those capacitors could have been eliminated?
