Re: [DML] Inadequate DeLorean Grounding Identified (Big Red Circle)



Won't happen -- my bus is weather protected inside the passenger compartment. Even the bus to battery connection is inside. There are only two external connections to the bus:
Front radiator bracket: http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/383933_294239117288012_384394085_n.jpg
Engine block (at the top, thank you very much, not right next to the pavement): http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/387305_294242413954349_1594776592_n.jpg
Everything else is just as weather protected as my upholstery, carpet, and headliner.

Note also that bus connections are not left bare as pictured in Message #85588 (that picture just illustrated how soldered factory junctions are attached to the bus). The saddle clamp is then wrapped in heat shrunk tape: http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/532723_357245094320747_1768539170_n.jpg
Bus connections aren't even exposed to the climate controlled atmosphere inside the car! 

Metal bodied cars contemporary to the DeLorean typically had capacitors on ignition only. They didn't need capacitors anywhere else because something as simple as turn signals didn't create a bunch of electrical noise. My ground bus emulates the electrical efficiency of a metal bodied car. 

IMHO.
