    You have to bend the flux bands yourself right on your car. Otherwise it all does not snug together.

    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
    I would say take Gary's specs and go to Home Depot for some foamboard for the exhaust vents. PVC for the Fluxbands. Atleast that's what I would start with as a version 1. So you have a prototype built and can view without draining your bank account.

    You can see #GhettoFusion (Mr. Fusion) on my page, in my link or just do hashtag #Ghettofusion on facebook.

    Thanks Doug
    I appreciate the advice. I was really hoping that there was a place where someone could purchase these props already done. I have the tech/ mechanical ability ( I think ) . I just don't have the time.
    Sincerely

    I'm a fan of all three vendors. Any of their props can be expensive,

    I wish they'd make the easy off/on stuff for their prices for those of us reluctant to turn ours into a movie prop. I'd spend the money for flux bands if I could get them off in an hour or two.

    Just like Dave over at DMCMW commented on FB, stock values may rise as the movie fades.

    I have seen this at car shows where the 6 to 8 year olds don't know what Back to the Future is (a DeLorean owners greatest fear I guess). Parents not showing them the movie?

    So if that classic movie fades, stock values may rise and bttf mods may decrease? I'd want to have the best of both worlds if that happens.

    There is a difference between "Dreaming and Driving" as I like to put it.

    The solution? Make a reversible mod or another Back to the Future movie lol! (reboot?)

    I wrote to some of the vendors, and I never heard back. I would love to start with exhaust vents and flux bands that can be placed on the car while it is parked....and then removed when I drive away. Seems like a good place to begin...having the best of both worlds.
