Gas Art Automotive wheel system Circle Auto part

a friend cut me the plate with his water jet. I was going to get him to cut all the holes too but that would of taken along time to draw in cad for a one off part. So I clamped it to transmission with the coupler attached and transfer punched the holes.

I was originally going to weld the center of the clutch into the coupler but i got the wrong coupler. It sintered steel. So I machined in a key way and pressed it in. Hopefully it holds.

I have an hpevs ac50 with matching Curtis controller.
I have 10 optima yellow tops that I got for cheap. I’ll be testing with those for awhile.
if I get it Driving and I like it, then I’ll invest in lithium batteries. Probably salvaged from a wrecked ev.
Bolt, model s or leaf batteries would fit in the battery boxes I made.

Those are the e brake cables and further up the tunnel are the shifter cables. Next I’ll bolt the batteries to the tray, run pvc conduit to the front and make some sort of plastic cover plates for the battery trays.
my ev west order came today!
Wrx pedal, fuses, relays etc.
gave up on the mini pedal. I’d love to get to power steering rack working at some point. if anyone knows how to trick the computer into thinking it’s running that would be awesome!

Got the motor spinning again. This time with the the Subaru wrx sti pedal. Seems to have way better response than the pot it came with. Made a bracket, mounted the pedal. Next I’m going to mount and wire the vacuum pump.
