Default El(ectric) Camino Project

Gentlemen, it has begun.

I have moved from the planning phase to the execution phase for my Electric Camino project.

The donor vehicle arrived from California on Tuesday and looks to be a perfect candidate for an electric vehicle conversion:

No motor/transmission
No interior seats (dash and door panels intact and in excellent shape)
Nearly rust-free (thank you, California weather!)
The engine bay has already been prepped and painted by the previous owner.
Body is primer gray and all trim removed (ready for paint)

I will update the blog below with pictures as soon as I give the "baby" a bath.

Baby got a bath today and I cleaned her up good! She is the perfect donor.
