NEC 2019
#1
I've put some photos from today on the Club's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DeLorean-Owners...395051618/)

Unfortunately I can't put them on here, as the forum says the files are too large, so it won't let me upload them.

It was great to see so many friends old and new today, and kudos to those who did the whole 4 days - I'm shattered after just today!

Thanks to you and the rest of the team, for yet another great NEC....I can only manage 3 days......these days....something about getting old!

We met some very interesting people who were involved with the car 40 years ago...and some who are fresh into it now. Loads more info for book 2. 

 Book 1 sold very well, (Thanks John) not many left now, if you do want another copy ....get in touch without delay.

Delores also sold, after 20 years of ownership. I must get MGJ finished.........


(I only just got my trailer back to the hire place.....through the Derbyshire floods.)

Thanks to everyone who helped me load up my car, and to Andrew, who managed the tricky job of threading the trailer through the vey limited space, up into my garage .....late last night.

I slept like a log!

    I went off for a quick walk around and on my return found some 'old boy' sat in my car!!

...doubtless admiring the superior Grey interior !

All in all a great weekend and I'm sorry I wasn't able to be on the stand for as long as I had original planned.  But it was great to be a part of it again after a couple of 'fallow' years - I really enjoyed it, and everybody's company. I even got interviewed! 
('Stainless steel, 88mph' etc etc!!)

You will have all seen the state of my chassis/ frame laid bare - which isn't fantastic, but I hope everybody found it interesting so see what the overall build of a DeLorean is based around, in it's most primal form!  The general public flocked around the stand to see the great examples on show, and the more informed or technically minded customers were interested in the construction of the car and chassis too.

The chassis is now off to Nottingham to be dipped, stripped and laid bare.  Be interesting to see what it looks like...

First and foremost, a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved over the (very) long weekend at the NEC. It cant be under-estimated how big a commitment this weekend is to all involved, not just those who supply cars (or a chassis) to people who spend the entire 4 days or just a few hours both manning the stand & answering the endless questions. There are too many people to thank individually but on behalf of myself and the club.

Thank You.

Nice to see you again Rich, after such a long time of absence. Try not to make it so long next time.

Knowing that my chassis is in a similar condition to yours (even after having over £800 worth of welding done to the back end in 2016!), I literally CAN'T WAIT to see what your chassis looks like after all the Epoxy is removed from it! Please put me out of my misery by putting up pictures on the forum for us to take a good look. I'm sure it's not just me who's extremely interested and curious, especially after taking a mental note of its appearance with the Epoxy still hiding its secrets!

ditto to that Rissy, Flopsy's chassis is like Weetabix in the rear box section under the engine.

No bother! I'll start a new thread with it all at some stage soon. It is now at the stripping company, along with the trailing arms. I'm going colour-matching at lunchtime to get the closest powder coat to the original epoxy colour.

(Long time before i'll be at that stage it though!!)
