    Just curious, can you explain how you locked the door without the key prior to closing the door? The DeLorean isn't like a Civic where you can just pop the door lock into the down position on the way...

    The pedal return spring and bushings have little to nothing to do with the weight of the clutch pedal. The pedal weight is a function of the diaphragm spring on the clutch pressure plate, and the...

    I was about to mention this. These already exist on the sides of the body tub and have been used in this location. The 3D printed cap is a good idea, but will be hard to compete.
