    You should see a refund soon. I ordered some of the DMC stickers for my shift knob and after a while I got a refund and a reply saying they were no longer in business. I didn't need to cancel.

    My theory, judging by how high it sits off the ground, is that they took the fiberglass body of the Delorean, and dropped it on another frame. Remember, this series was filmed at a time when DMCH did...

    Yep. I have a couple of pieces of grey pipe (plastic electrical conduit, I believe) that I put on the door strikers. I have a dymo-tool printout on them that says "Please look but don't touch". I...

    This was a great video to watch as I always thought one of the first things I'd try to do once I got my DeLorean was to update the front and rear fascias. I figured I'd remove the old ones, make a...

    They do sit very well. It's my favorite mod I made to the car. I would like to go just an inch lower someday. I really liked the stance of yours.

    You didn't leave the skimmer on, did you? I hate when I do that. :)

    Yeah, I didn't want to say anything to the organizer, but I was thinking the same thing. Even though I'm sure a lot of the kids that go to school there could afford it, I think that still seems...

    Hmm. It looks like you may be semi-correct. The Prius chat rooms seem to hint that it's not a good idea to jump anything off the 12v battery. But they say it's because there is not enough voltage....

    So the Prius has the Hybrid battery, as well as a standard 12v battery for starting the car. I have used it to jump my Honda Odyssey before without any odd effects. But now that you mention it, that...

    [General] Weird behavior when jump starting.

    So I left my lights on the other night and killed the battery. It was completely dead.

    When I attempted to jump start the car with my wife's car (2012 Prius), I hooked up the cables, attempted to...

    I'd seen a few plays on the word FLUX before, but not this one. It wasn't taken, and I'm surprised it didn't set off any flags. It now sits proudly on 5470.
