Additional FeaturesThis is my first EV build, and so far my knowledge is very small about EV's. You are more than welcome to e-mail me, I will appreciate it.
I've so far spend just a little under 5 hours in this conversion. I've taken out the petrol engine, and the automatic transmission, and cleaned a car very well. I'm now looking for a 5-speed manual transmission, because it is better than an automatic one. Once i get that I'll update my profile.
