Skittles looks like a toy.

It's a cartoon drawing version of Baymax from Big Hero 6.

I was able to fix everything that was wrong today, with the exception of the two knicks they put touch up paint on. The top of door piece I was able to salvage from Vader's doors, along with all of the clips. I had to pull apart both Vader doors to get 100% of the clips I needed.

Also got the trunk lid realigned, and I think I solved the rubbing problem. Baymax had a significant rear end collision in his lifetime, so the alignment of the trunk lid and the rear fascia is a challenge.

I even drained the bad gas out of Skittles and put in 5 gallons of premium. This seems to be solving the sputtering. May ultimately have to change the plugs, and maybe the injectors, but I think it just needs to be driven. Some of that gas was 3 years old.

We're quite likely going to do a frame-off restoration of Skittles, including a new re-manufactured engine. New fenders, powder coating all of the sub-frame, and having the body work done to make him exceptional. Then he gets all new stickers. We already have replacements for most of them, including the hood sticker. My guess is that's a $15-18,000 build. Will be worth every penny. And then he'll still be worth $2,000.
