2nd Conversion Workshop

Larry helped strip the interior, remove the muffler shields, gas lines, intake, etc. Larry has an electric Rabbit he needs many components for. I traded him a cool art deco clock for some of the old Sprint parts (DC/DC converter, "Bad Boy" Bohn charger, 10 tired flooded Marine'/RV batteries). He still needs a contactor, battery disconnect, fuse, controller, wiring, battery boxes, etc.My friend Jeff came over and helped make the hole for the main battery box. He brought a nice Dewalt metal shear but the air chisel with cutter tip worked the best.

People should learn more about energy alternatives like electric cars. The new ones coming out are way better than gas cars. One of the main electric car companies, Zap, has delivered more than 100,000 electric vehicles (source: EV’s cost 1 to 3 cents per mile to run, compare that to regular cars!
