Re: [DMCForum] stainless thickness

Gotta agree with the others. Go for the girl.

And like Hank Breer said, you can't compare the panel thickness with other
cars. Almost every other car out there uses the steel body panels as an
integral part of the structure of the car. On the DeLorean the panels are
just cosmetic. The fiberglass underbody is the structural part.
So you're comparing apples to oranges.
