Photo layout idea: The three cars in a semicircle with nose in, drivers near the doors. Swimsuit model laying in the foreground. Or you could loose the drivers and the cars.

Lol, Black Widow's needing a clutch (probably from so many bump starts) but otherwise doing great. Of course my son will never drive it now since he bought Turtle from me, lol!

Pretty good results so far on Ron Burgundy's first tank.

With this much left at 500 miles I should get at least 650 miles on the first tank. This is straight out of the box with no mods. Have the three-button shifter ordered, and will be adding the front aero panel in the next couple of weeks.

Also got the leaky sunroof seal replaced last weekend. Took about an hour, and it raised the waterproof percentage from 99.5 to 100%

First tank went pretty well, ended up over 650 miles and close to 69 mpg.

This is straight out of the box driving with no mods installed, so this is all car and driver. We will see what the upcoming mods will do.

In the next week or two I'll have all the mods below on the car:

#1 - Front aero panel (pallet liner) to replace the missing panels
#2 - Clutch override switch
#3 - Brake regen switch
#4 - Injector kill switch
#5 - Three-button shifter

Never thought I'd say I dig Ron Burgandy. Seriously though that is a beautiful car.

Yeahhh... let me know when you decide to do the mods. I'll install your clutch switch and brake switch ( would be nice if we can get the seat out ), and I'll need some help manufacturing some aero panels for mine. I still need to do my brake switch, as well.

Remind me and I'll bring over some heat shrink for the shifter, as well.

We'll need a couple of hours to install the wiring, shift knob and aero panels on both cars. We'll have to get some more pallet liners in Plant City, and they don't fit in the Insight, lol!

Just need some time to do it, which won't happen this week since I'm finishing up a kitchen remodel and we are painting this weekend. Probably have to wait another week.

You could install a brake regen button on yours real quick, though

Yeah, I'm probably going to do that tonight.

I got my remote in yesterday, but my door actuators for the driver's side and passenger's side are both broken. The hatch locks and unlocks, but the latch is broken on it, so basically nothing works. Gonna buy a replacement actuator for my driver's side and see if it works before getting the passenger's side, as well.

Don't know whether I'm just gonna get some tap-in connectors for the brake switch, though. I might still use the cones, as it looks like the brake wires are a lot easier to reach than the clutch wires.

I still don't know where to route my brake switch to for the time being, though.
