Congrats on the new car! Its a looker. I have been thinking about your new set up and I am not sure if you were planning on removing the solar panel or using it to power something other than the 12v, but I would leave it be. The reason I say this is because the only big down side to door poppers is the fact that they only work if the 12v is charged. (Some have a manual release hidden somewhere, yours may.). it's not fun dealing with doors that won't open because the battery is dead. Obviously you could crawl through the hatch on the insight and open a door if the battery dies. I just thought I would give you the heads up. I happy to see that you "rescued" another insight from the hands of someone who just thinks its another appliance.
