Car needed some rust repair before work started on the conversion. Donor had 320000 ks on it (195520 miles) when I bought it. Still ran well but oil and coolant were mixing. Radio busted.
$750 Price was good since it has new tires and was in good overall shape.
Design goal was for a real world range of 100 miles per charge and top speed above 60 MPH (hoping for 70).
Another goal was to not cripple the car for the conversion. That means trunk and seating capacity stays the same. So far, this seems to be on track to work out as planned.
Car was showing potential, but a loose connection inside the controller caused a small internal fire. Parts will be ordered to repair it.
Controller has been repaired and is working again.
Update 3. Road testing has started and performance specs will be uploaded as results come in.
Update 4. Now running a clutch
Update 5. BLDC system proved unreiable and has been replaced with a warP 9" brushed motor being fed through a soliton Jr controller
