    Unfortunately, I can't find that picture/thread at the moment. But it will turn up.
    Here you go, I hope Olivier doesn't mind me posting a pic of his car. I'm sure he will get this car back, he seems to,have a good skillset.

    My D is still not in from Florida. But I finally have something to hold on to. My original EVO DMC wheel.
    I may not have a Delorean, but I am pretty well prepared for it, don't you think?

    Another project that I like to work on along with the long restoration of my D, is a BTTF replica / stock Delorean Hybrid.
    That is, create a removable props set for the car that would take about 20 minutes to take on and off.
    Why? Simply because I hate to watse another good D with drillings and such and because it also looks DAMN FINE with those huge smoke throwers in the rear!
    I know it can not become 100% screen accurate, but I will give my best not to make it look like a clown.

    Here are my recent purchases for that aswell:

    Mr Fusion stickers

    The plates:

    The bumper letters

    Now this next one is not for the car but it is a FUN hand held item: A Mini flux capacitor. Anybody knows where that comes from? (sorry image is blurred. will post better one when it arrives)

    As times have evolved the old time circuit is a bit out dated. So I will be replacing it with an ipad app

    The mini-FC is a badge/pin that was produced by Steve Clarke at BTTF.com. At least that's where I got mine from. He may just have been reselling something made by others.

    Car still sailing across the Atlantic....
    Some of you may have read my post intending on replacing the stock exhaust with a Porsche 997 turbo set.
    Well, the tips are here and I have already worked on them, to give them the D stainless steel look. (not seen on the attached image)
    Onwards...

    Nice to see someone still thinking of my anxiety

    Thank you!
    Actually my car is going rounds in the Mediterranean sea.
    It left the Evergreen port FL on the MADRID EXPRESS on May 14th.
    Then got unloaded on the Italian island of Sardinia (Port Cagliari) on May 23rd. Sat there for about 10 days and got reloaded on the Ship ROZA A to be expected at the port of Piraeus (athens) on June 10th. I am expecting a 3-4 day delay on that.

    Right now is has sailed back to Valecia in Spain, on to Costellon de la Plana and finally, I hope, to Barcelona, to finish its long journey.

    In the mean time I have built, by my self killing time, several BTTF props.

    As I have mentioned before, I am not looking to make a replica. But I may create a Hybrid replica set. On and off!


    Two deloreans in one
