    I finally got the smile machine on a lift this past Sunday to detail the underside. Thought I'd show her off.

    That looks amazing! Super clean. Give Stephen a run for his money. But, it definitely highlights why you don't use a bottle jack on the engine cradle.

    Haha. Yep. That was before my time. Sadly, there's no such thing as a perfect DeLorean.

    Very ...very... nice Colin!

    There may not be such a thing as a perfect DeLorean but it makes me smile every time I see a "near-perfect" car like yours.

    Thanks Dana. I try. I've got Ben (Soundkillr) to thank for taking such beautiful care of the car for the past 19 years before I bought it from him last year. Working to perfect every last detail while obsessively keeping it as original as possible. I've got a handful of things to do to it now before I say "it's as good as it's ever going to get". Very proud of her.

    Finally wired in my Grand Cherokee chime module. I used a 4 pole relay to send a negative signal to the module for a headlights on chime.

    What type of lift is that? It looks a lot like my Direct Lift 8S. Looking good!

    I believe it's a Direct Lift "Four Post" lift. I'm not entirely sure which model it is, but knowing the garage owners, it'll probably be the best model.
