I haven't really had a build thread, but figured I've got some good progress so might as well start one! My wife has come up a good name for the car, Bumblebee ("transformed" from gas to electric...).
This past weekend I cut out my adapter plate. (With lots of help from xrotaryguy, thanks man!) WD-40 is definitely your friend when cutting metal.
I still need to drill the mounting holes in the plate for the motor and transmission but that will be pretty easy. I'll hopefully get my first (very low speed) test drive in the next couple weeks!
