Adaptor too?

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

Got word that the adapter should be machined near the end of this month. So February could be a big progress month. Time to get started on he battery racks for sure.

Motor in transit!

Got a call just a few minutes ago that the motor is being shipped. Hopefully it gets here in the next 10 days or so and we’re in business!

Hey Man What’s Going On?

It’s been kind of slow. Still working out the order for an adapter and controller. I found a local store that sells the batteries I’m interested in so I may go pick one up and start on hard battery rack design. I’m planning for February to be a good month. I’d like to get a start on the following then:

  • Order cable and battery terminal connections
  • Layout wiring plan, schematics
  • Order and install brake vacuum
  • Reinstall power steering and A/C compressor on stock bracket, check for drive motor fitment
  • That’s probably enough, I don’t want to be too ambitious since I’m also hoping the motor will be here by then too.
