Thanks for the comments! Yes, this did come from Brent, it seems he is the king of Insight parts. On the chopped Metro, that looks cool. My experience is in mechanical work, so I'm up for that, however body work is not my bag. The only significant exterior issue should be the headlights. Since the OEM ones are high, the plan is to retrofit from another car. This should give it a more unique look too. Also have access to professional chassis builders for any fab work I can't handle, which will surely be needed. The initial plan is to fab mounts off the OEM mounts for the motor/trans, then splice together the CV shafts with chrome moly tubing. Once the drive train is in, the rest will follow. If the car is about at the 1800 lb curb weight with 400 lb of batteries, then it's all good.
