Default InsightFest 2017. Swap meet. Whatcha' bringing? Whatcha' need?

As part of any InsightFest there is always some sort of Swap meet.

Thought it might be helpful if we started a thread for InsightFest 2017 Madison WI

FS = items for sale.
FT = items for trade
WTB = items you want to buy

Would it be weird to drive an Insight that I'm looking to sell to the event?
2000 Honda Insight MT, silver with aftermarket cruise control.
132k miles
Hit a deer - Needs hood, front bulkhead components(radiator support cross pieces), AC condenser, and maybe a headlight. Radiator is intact and the hood hangs on the safety latch, runs and drives just fine. Engine is in great shape and the transmission does NOT have the 2nd gear grind. IMA battery needs refurb or replacement.
Could be used as a daily driver with replacement parts or used for parts if someone needs the parts.
Haven't decided on a price but I have time to think about it. Would be willing to deliver it seperate to the event if the gas costs to deliver and costs for me to get back are compensated, but it could be a decent opportunity for someone to check it out prior to purchase.

I'll make a post on a new sell thread with pictures leading up to the event but would this be a good idea to bring it with me? ..or if someone is interested, feel free to PM an offer or questions.

No, multiple Insights changed hands at the last event.

Default 2002 Blue MT for sale

I have a 2002 Blue MT with AC for sale. I am NW of Chicago. I will deliver it (on a dolly) up to 100 miles - or to this InsightFest free. Possibly further if you pay for mileage.

It needs one of Scott's rebuilt transmissions... Here is the CraigsList posting:

chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/cto/6160689462

It has the Hybrid Automotive grid harness. I'm keeping the charger for my 2000. It has Scott's rear springs and the upgraded shocks. I put new plugs in it. It has less than 1000 miles on the tires. They are not the Bridgestones but are Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S 165/65-14.

Post WTB Grid Charger Harness

WTB: Are the grid charger harnesses specific for the different commercially sold grid chargers? I have read the installation instructions and they seem simple enough. But I am reluctant to do the installation alone and thought at this event with all the expert help it would be a breeze.

My commute is all freeway, 100 miles round trip at 70-75 with a few hills. Honda replaced IMA in April 2014 and 30k miles ago. It is always at 29 bars and drops to 15-17 bars and quickly goes back to 19 bars. I have been told to wait on getting a Grid Charger for now. What does the G1 community think? Steve

Default WTB: Tan Headliner for 05 Insight

WTB: 04-06 Insight Tan Headliner. Mine has several cigarette burn holes right below the A-pillar next to driver's window. I have already replaced (eBay) the driver's inside door panel that had a few cigarette burns from the 1st owner. I can bring it if anyone had use for it.
