Hi. I’m an old hot rodder having done many engine swaps and race car builds but I’m brand new to EV conversions. I just bought a 79 VW bus to convert using a small rear Tesla S motor, Tesla batteries, and EV West controller. Any guidance from anyone having done a similar conversion will be greatly appreciated.

1967 VW Split Screen Van - "ICE Breaker"
Kevin had the van getting it ready for three years, then started the conversion using Nissan Leaf components, then a year later switched to Tesla components, and a couple of years building it... with complete replacement of the front and rear suspension. You might not choose the same design, but this project is well worth reading about.
