Quick intro - I am a working mechanic who also restores cars as a hobby, I have experience in many different fields within the automotive world, and I love building stuff.

I've often considered doing electric conversions and with the way gas prices keep going up, I think this is a great time to learn how to do this. I've got a '69 VW Bug that can be used as my "test project.

Welcome!

I suppose one good thing about a Bug is that many other people have converted them, so you have lots of examples to copy. Of course, some of the shouldn't be copied... ;)
Yes, very true. I'm also toying with the idea of electrifying older muscle cars, but the stigma of "It NEEDS a big block!" seems to turn away many folks as soon as I mention the idea.
