Yeah, seen this project. Pretty cool. Deloreans are not that hard to find, but ones in good condition are getting pretty scarce. Conversions away from stock are labors of love.

By the way, in the movie, it's pronounced "jigawatt" but Doc Brown was actually saying the word spelled "gigawatt" -- the fringe of the science community in the 1950s hadn't quite settled down to know how to pronounce it yet, since it's so big. Nowadays, most everyone hears gigabyte and gigawatt with a hard G.

Yup. That's why I used "Jigawatt".
