I'll have to look for that Hot Wheels! I have the mid-engined 1st gen HW CRX.

I got very distracted by two Insights! I haven't done anything with the CRXFi for way too long. But I do think about it! The last thing I did was buy some rust repair rear quarter panels. The rusty rear quarters were covered with a thick layer of Bondo and it was starting to come off in large chunks. I've practiced welding on scrap body panels, but the results were not good! I don't know if it's me or my welder. I can either make lumps with no penetration, or cut right through the sheet metal.

With the Bondo removed on one side and some primer:
