    Scott, Good Morning.
    Thank you for your kind words the other day. I appreciate what's happening on this site and the commitment the members have to this little gem of a car.
    Having been in the "service business" I too have had customers like our "friend". I grew 3 blocks from Indiana University and encountered people that felt like they were better, smarter, stronger than everyone else because of the letters after their name. Granddad used to call it "so smart they can't pour p*ss out of a boot with instructions on the heel". Anyway I continue to search for my Insight. I am looking at one in corrosion prone South Bend In. It has your belly pan on it. I'm still considering jumping on an cheap flight to Florida and buying one there to drive back. Thanks for all you contribute here, I'm learning alot reading all the past and current posts.
    Happy Motoring!
    J.B. Young

    Hi! I was advised by member Jesse to contact you about my rear hatch issue. Nothing happens unless I jumper the ORN(pin 3) to the BLK(pin 6) bypassing the hatch unlock switch. Then the TLC just whirs, which is an obvious fix. Have you run across failed Hatch Lock/Unlock switches, or is it something I can clean? I haven't disassembled anything yet, waiting for the TLC to show up. ASE Master Mechanic here, btw, just never worked on an Insight until one was given to me in November
    Nathan Moore,

    Hey Scott, I bought a 2004 Insight in phoenix a couple months ago somewhat impulsively. It's a CVT but I'm ok with that for now. Everything seemed great when I test drove the car. IMA fully charged, no check engine light. then a couple days after I got it home the CEL came on, and then a day or two later the IMA light came on and now I'm sort of lost about what to do. A couple of people on the 1st Gen forum support me taking the car to you and spending the night. I'd like to learn more, I'm a mechanical engineer and I have reasonable skills with tools but I don't want to make big errors with the battery, grid charger, etc. Any initial advice on skilled people in Phoenix ? Or when should I drive to Covina to see you? Thanks, Joseph

    Hey, good talking to you today... I went out and gave the car a good evaluation and I think I'm going to ask for just a silver hood and any color core support.

    Hello Sir,

    Stuart here in Maryland. Thanks for replying to my suspension repair thread. So are you the guy who runs Hybrid Revolt??

    I need a pair of the Gaz shocks. So if I send you $240 on paypal, you can ship em out to maryland for me?? I haven't used paypal in a while but should be able to figure it out.

    Thank you. Youre saving me 100 vs what I saw on ebay.

    Finally found your page, how do I get more information on a 2000 Honda Insight MT rebuild? I have 230k on the transmission and Im beginning to hear some funky noises.

    Thank you,

    Hi Scott,

    I am interested in your aluminum belly pans. I live in Patterson, CA (Modesto area) and have 2 gen 1 Insights, a 2000 silver (Typhoon) and 2001 blue (Hurricane). We live in a rural mountain area with dirt and gravel roads, which has been rough on the OEM belly pans. The 2001 blue has lost most of the pan in front. I'd like to fit that one first, see how things go, then fit the silver. Can you give me a price quote for both, including shipping?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Scott, I'm interested in purchasing your trailer hitch. I have a '01 Insight (CVT). Mostly looking to use it for a bicycle rack, and occasionally a 1-spot light-weight motorcycle trailer.

    If you would be willing to bring it and install at InsightFest 2018 in Madison, WI, I will be there for that, and I would be happy to pay you for your time as well.

    If you already have a full schedule at InsightFest, then I would be willing to pay shipping to Appleton, WI 54914
