So we actually have 2 of these Insights,  the other one doesn't seem to run well and is not charging the IMA battery.  So I'm pretty much considering that a parts car at this point.  But it did have some nice new wheels on it,  so time for the old swap-a-roo.

This poor car is starting to look a little better,  well better in the sense it's doesn't look abandoned.  But it's still a Honda Insight after all lol.  

Still working on the paint too!
