    Sorry, took a few days off from daily Internet use, working on a few
    projects over a three day weekend. Lots done, but little rest.

    Luckily, I do have a few spare used parts that should work just fine,
    in case new parts are unavailable (or too expensive) to replace some
    or most of the good, used parts I have "reserved" for use in the Limo
    project. Of course, I have plenty of custom interior parts that need
    to be fabricated as well, so recovered or reconditioned binnacles and
    dash covers are pretty low on my list of parts to worry about having.

    One part that I do not currently need, but I will have a little difficulty
    fabricating myself (if needed) would be a new replacement windshield.

    Again, I hope I will not need one or more soon, but it would certainly
    be comforting to know that part is once again available, in quantity.

    Later,
    Rich W.

    Hi Rich,

    Always impressed with your work and skills.
    All that would not be allowed on the European (certainly not on Belgian) roads. Deloreans are normally not allowed either, that is why we drive so called "prototype" Delorean-cars.

    But what I was wondering is if you will take this limosine to DCS in Orlando? I would really like to see it.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your comments about my DeLorean Projects. I build my creations
    for myself and others to enjoy, so I try to plan to have at least one or more
    of my projects (or other unique DeLoreans) at the DCS Events and DCS 2012
    will be no exception...even though I need to traverse the Smokey Mountains.

    The plan is to have the DeLorean Limousine at DCS 2012 as a Work-in-Progress
    (whether it is completed or not), as long as I have the required vehicles to do
    the transport. I have the trailers and I have at least one truck, so far, and I
    hope to acquire another tow vehicle soon, either a full-size RV or a bigger SUV.

    The DeLorean Roadster Convertible may also be ready as a Work-in-Progress for
    DCS 2012, in its new, latest form (with or without a top), but like the D Limo, it
    will depend on time and funds available to get this project and the D Limo further
    toward completion. I do not think the D Rex will traverse the mountains this time.

    However, if all goes well with planning of DCS 2014, there will be a good chance
    I could have the D Rex, the D Limo, the D Roadster and others, all on display then.

    Later,
    Rich W.

    Someday I want to fly into Chicago and be picked up in the Delorean limo. Now that would be sweet.

    Hi Rich,

    It is great what you can built.
    I can immagine it must be quite a trip from Chicago to Orlando, especially with a "stretched" Delorean on a trailer. I hope you can make it with the limo, time will tell.

    Hi John,

    I know there are many DeLorean enthusiasts waiting to see this project
    in person, so I plan to have it there, either done or as a work-in-progress.

    If the complete exterior is done, I may consider transporting it on my 36ft
    open trailer, but depending upon a number of other factors, I may decide
    to transport it in my 32ft enclosed trailer (kind of "hidden" until the debut).

    Doing an open transport (like with the D Rex) draws all kinds of attention
    and can make for "security" issues when stopping over for a night along
    the way, so we will have to wait and see where we are by next Spring.

    Thanks,
    Rich W.

    BTW: Yes, the 1200 miles, each way, will be a very long transport.
