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

Perhaps you should stop arguing....

Your knee jerk response to anything/everything I do to my car does not have to be immediate disagreement. After a decade it has become quite tiresome. With all due respect, you have become argumentative just for the sake of being argumentative.

The predictable pattern is: I report a successful modification I have made to my car. You immediately argue either that the modification won't work (conveniently overlooking the fact I am writing in the *PAST* tense), or that the modification was not necessary. You typically add a few personal insults to your response (I may criticize the inanimate object car, but you criticize the human being me -- not very nice...). Your knee jerk disagreement forces me onto the defensive from the very beginning. Perhaps you should study the various things I do to my car first before reflexively arguing against them. They *HAVE* yielded very successful results....

When you see pictures of #5939 at various events, remember how far it has driven just to be there. I am the only DMA member who drives through five or six full size states to attend. #5939 logs 5,000-10,000 miles annually. To be perfectly blunt, I am the only one of us who is still driving the same car we bought in 2002. 

Anyway, my humble suggestion is to take a step back and let someone else be the first responder the next time I post a mod. It's my car and my sole prerogative to do anything I want to it. Nearly every single mod has worked exactly as anticipated (there have been a few experiments that did not work, such as the angle driveless speedometer cable and the mid column rag joint, but I *WAS* open and honest to report their failures -- complete with pictures...).
