|The car had not been operational for many years when I bought it. I replaced the EV-1 controller with a Curtis 1221B. I rewired all of the EV wiring. I used 2/0 welding cable for all the battery cables. I added a precharge resistor (light bulb), circuit breaker, and fuses. I installed new carpet.|
