    Star could you ask him why he makes the rear deck in stainless and not aluminum? It is a pretty good question.

    I did and apologies, it was a misunderstanding on my part. For both the previous and the current P J Grady design, only the support brackets for the rear deck were stainless; the deck itself and vents are all aluminium. Chris confirmed that the flux bands are stainless for durability, since they are close to the road and vulnerable to flexing when the kit is installed or removed.

    Just to confirm, this kit has been in development and final prices / availability should be announced soon. Chris has been making blueprints, fibreglass moulds and test pieces of stainless and is close to finalising the design.

    It's not dead but it is on hold because Chris N has been really busy. Usually he has less work in the winter, but he said that this winter has been booked solid with people bringing their new US imports to him for restoration work.

    I would think with the 2015 year and people (like myself) would pay alot to get a non destructive conversion done, atleast for the flux bands that it would be worth more of his time? It's not like he's putting the parts on too, just shipping them.

    I am just adverse to drilling into my D to make it into a movie prop. (no offense to other D owners out there), so color me interested.

    Now to clarify things, a conversion does not make a Delorean better, just different.

    Rip?

    It would appear that this project is dead.....

    So...

    Hello Folks
    Can anyone recommend the best place to purchase flux bands and rear exhaust vents? I am looking to begin some BTTF mods that are strictly for static displays. I eventually want to do an easily reversible conversion, and I thought that this might be a good place to start.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Charlie
