    Great conversion! What kind of seats are those out of?

    I am assumming that you "beefing" up the engine for added passengers?

    Where did you end up hiding the fuse box and computer?
    Sorry so many questions but that is just beautiful!

    John,

    This is very cool! Nice work.

    I'm shocked at how you were able to fit two seats without stretching any of the SS panels or changing the overall appearance of the car. Quite the impressive display of ingenuity.

    I'd love to see some pics of four people in the car (probably kids in the back are easiest right?)

    You would have made JZD proud, as he often sketched various ways to achieve more seating, even in the standard dmc-12 model.

    I have one other JZD sketch I will try and hunt down that looks very similar to your finished result.

    PS: Enjoy the pic. attached of a "2 and 1/2" seater DeLorean I saw at Eurofest 2001. So adorable. Took this off of my web-site.

    I wasn't at Eurofest and I regret it, so, I didn't see your car in person.
    That's an awesome work you made on that car.
    You repaired the only negative point I see on the DeLorean! Two seat for the kids!
    You made the dream come true, congratulation!
    Can't wait to see more picture on your website.

    You're absolutely right!
    I'd love to take a ride with my kids into the car
    This would be possible if only the car was design like you did.

    That is such a trip to see two people sitting one in front of the other in a DMC. Crazy cool stuff.

    Most of the custom D experiments occur in the States (usually by my good friend Rich W.). I'm happy to see D owners experimenting overseas like this as well. Especially when it appears that you've done such a quality job with the whole creation (the frame and fitting look excellent).

    One question though, are you thinking of redoing the seats in leather/vinyl, or sticking with the cloth?

    Look forward to seeing more pics.
