Pas de probleme. L'autre gars, c'est mon frere! Minor damage. And the damage to the van is just a scrape in the paint. But it's 12 years old, and coincidentally, my scrape is located just above a much larger dent/scrape that was already there on the van. They're not worried about it - in fact my brother was more concerned about my car.

Also, more about the inspection questions. I guess you did not had to argue for the added weight and they didn’t see anything wrong whit your modified brake system ?
No - we're still within the GVWR with a 48v pack and 2 adults. As for the brakes, I doubt they would even notice the Metro is wearing larger calipers and discs from a Swift.

I think it's fantastic that you were involved in the solar car project. What an experience that must have been! Very cool
