I would like to know if anyone has a good source for the parts to convert my car. I went to a school for ev cars but am finding it hard to get the source. Please help

It's an easy upgrade. 2017 only had 30kwh. I have done a couple of these upgrades in Colorado if you are in the area. You need a CAN-Bridge to make the newer batteries compatible with 2011/2012 LEAFs. You need to buy a battery or a salvage LEAF with the battery you want the rest is straightforward.
