Free: Insight boat tail and grill blocks

It came with the car when I bought it off another user on ecomodder (metrompg)


Here's the build thread (boat tail).
http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...uft-25223.html


Grille blocks:

I gave the insight to my mom so now this is just taking up space in the garage. It's in Ancaster, Ontario. If anyone wants it let me know. It won't be worth shipping so pick up only.

I'll probably give it till spring when I'll need to clean out the garage.

Holy crap, I almost want to drive up there and get that boat tail!

I'm struggling with the mathematical equation of (Insight + boat tail versus probability of no sex after installation), and I'm still trying to crunch the numbers. Wish there was an easy a-b-a test

Check the build thread:

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...uft-25223.html

It's a wood frame, with carpeting over the points that touch the car (rear horizontal glass and bottom of bumper). Ratchet straps to the hatch strut mounts and rear springs.

To be safe, you could put painter's tape on the painted & plastic portions of the car where it touches.

Keep in mind this is a cardboard tail, somewhat weatherproofed with oil paint and a plastic skin. For long life, you would want to glass it or paint it with gorilla glue or something.

I seriously want those grill blocks. I'd take the tail too but i'd need a passport to get into Canada. My car is sufficiently dinged up that i don't care about how it looks or if i scuff up the paint. Wouldn't custom's tear up the tail looking for drugs?

Is there a passenger side mirror delete plate?

It looks so silly, they may just not tear it up, if it's free, which it is, and since nobody seems is willing to grab it, it's worth a try.
