  Designed for Issue 131 of the Build the DeLorean Time Machine by Eaglemoss. View build planner

This DeLorean mod is designed to attach to the standard plastic hood box that comes with Issue 131 of the Build the DeLorean by Eaglemoss/DeAgostini.

Made from real wood, each part is precision cut and has been designed to be easy and fun to install, whilst giving the standard plastic box a stunning transformation.

All parts have a protective tape on the front to protect the wood in transit, plus a self-adhesive backing. Installation really is as easy as peel and stick!

This upgrade kit has been thoroughly tested to ensure full compatibility with the standard Eaglemoss/DeAgostini DeLorean parts installed within the hood box. It is designed to make the hood box look as close to the real thing as possible – even down to countersunk screw hole detailing and ensuring the grain direction is the same as on the original.

Easy to follow, fully illustrated instructions are included, detailing every step of the installation of this luxury DeLorean mod.

What’s included:

  • All wooden parts required to transform the standard plastic hood box
  • 1 x 16-page illustrated set of instructions
  • 1 x Metallic vinyl sticker sheet (for the countersunk screw detailing)
  • 4 x Sandpaper squares (2 x Coarse and 2 x Fine) – A light sanding of the corners and top edges is an optional final step detailed in the instructions
  • 4 x Self-adhesive foam pads (for protecting the DeLorean’s hood)
  • 1 x Metal light switch tool (giving easier access to the light switch inside the box)

Features:

  • Real wood – Sustainably sourced
  • Self-adhesive backing
  • Easy and fun to install
  • Precision cut
  • Screen-accurate
  • Pre-applied transfers
  • Metallic countersunk screw detailing

Looking after your wooden DeLorean hood box:

As the hood box is made from real wood, it is important to understand how to look after it once installed to avoid disappointment.

It is recommended that the hood box is stored in a warm, dry environment. If the wood gets damp or is stored in a cold room such as a conservatory or garage, it may warp due to moisture in the air. This can be avoided easily by careful storage of your model and will not only extend the life of the hood box mod but the life of your model in general.

All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos outside of the ‘What’s included’ list above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.

    Nice and Pro video on the Subject .Mike Lane MODS are really FANTASTIC , THE BEST for PERFECT ACHIEVEMENTS .I can only see this when I do not have them in my hands yet and I too am an enthusiastic perfectionist like Wayne ...The day when I will be able to embark on the Projects that are close to my heart, namely LA DELOREAN by EAGLEMOSS or L 'ECTO 1 by GHOSTBUSTERS, I will not fail to use Mike Lane's MODS to perfect my achievements, it is unavoidable !

    Mike, your mods are amazing. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is outstanding. My Delorean build is much improved thanks to your hard work. If anyone is looking to take their build to the next level, Mike's upgrades are the way to go.

    Add this beautiful extra detail to the plastic shell EM provide and make it look movie accurate. I don’t remember anyone saying large plastic trays were available in 1885!

    Mike's Hood Box kit is incredibly well done. It's an essential upgrade to make the hood box look like it did in the movie. The time and effort to so accurately design this kit is extraordinary. This is the fourth mod I've gotten from Mike for my DeLorean, and all of them have been fantastic. Well done, Mike!

    The kit is absolutely great, everything is precisely cut, self-adhesive and fits 100%, even the smallest holes. I can only guess how much work the development must have been...
    Thank you, "Magic" Mike Lane

    What a master piece, really well thought out, bit of a faff if you have all ready put it all together having to take everything apart again, before buying this up grade. Well worth taking your time in putting this together, Easy to build and adds such a lot to the model.
