These just popped up on DMCTalk. The subject is Paul Nigh’s Team Timecar that does a lot to search for lost children. There’s more and much larger photos here: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39-m5-e52-z8-discussion/407257-delorean-time-machine-getting-charged-up-bmw-m5-e39-photos-wallpapers.html
I had the Hot Wheels one when I was little.

I’ve been gluing and upgrading K9. The glue I previously used for K9 was terrible and gave out. Cracks were forming in the paint because of that. I pulled him apart and glued with Gorilla Glue. I wish I had used it in the first place.
I’ve glued in a magnet. It’s been filled in and sanded smooth. I can use it to stick things to K9 like 3d printed celery or a Star Trek communicator.
K9 has a new control board layout. I ditched that rubbermaid lid and went with acrylic with an aluminum mount and support. I’ve got to remove all the circuits now and take the protective film off. Then I can mount and wire up everything. I’m hoping to be able to make this nice and neat. Neatness is not one of my strong suits. It will be tough.

Finally, Tom is mostly finished. I have some touch ups to do where I damaged or messed up the paint but he’s fully constructed. He’s going on the back burner after that because I need parts. I’m trying to locate a small speaker or two that I can hide in the puppet. Then the Mp3Trigger will get programmed and I have to work on a button bar. This Tom will talk before Christmas.
I’m not feeling so hot today but I wanted to do something for my poor Monte Carlo anyway. I put the Lumina trunk lid on. I’ve removed the Lumina badge since i took this photo but the gummy backing is still there. I’ll work on that when it gets to be important. I still need a huge piece of sheetmetal before I can really progress any further. I just need to feel better before I go work in a junkyard for hours on end.

I finally painted the silver on Tom. I used a mask on the beak but freehand the engine block. I should have freehand the beak too because the block turned out great and my tape mask leaked on the beak so I have some repairing to do.
I don’t think I’m going to get 1.21 gigawatts out of that but I have a couple of trusty time travelling hats just in case. Marty’s 2015 and the 4th Doctor’s.
