[DMCForum] Re: My Rear Tire Fits in the Bonnet!



Hi Bob,

Sorry, didn't realise this was going to be an electric car! What 
kind of range are you hoping for? If I could get a 150 mile range, 
I'd seriously consider converting my car to electric.

That is actually a very good way to cool the interior of the car, 
with full size door windows and the rear window retracted you will 
have huge airflow through the car.

Do you have any good pictures and/or video clips of your full size 
power windows from the BTTF car in operation? I'd love to see some 
good pics of that - most pics on the web are not great.

I spoke to you a while ago when you were thinking of offering the 
full size door windows in a kit form - I'd be very interested in 
that! Any plans to get this kit together? Alternatively, could you 
give some pointers in making a similar system myself?

Lastly, good work on the trunk area in the front - I'm thinking of 
making a custom trunk floor myself to increase luggage space to the 
largest possible size.

Thanks,
John
