Hello from Boston, Massachusetts

Greetings. I'm restoring 2 classic pre 70 VWs. The initial plan was to swap out the type 1 1600cc engines for type 4 Porsche engines, so I started gathering all the necessary pieces for the project. THEN something wonderful happened. I got to ride in a friends Tesla and was immediately hooked. I started reading anything I could find that was related to electrifying a vehicle. I purchased my first part for the beginning of my conversion, a forklift motor from a Nissan forklift, and hope to diy my own controller (driver) for it. I'll have many questions for the members of this forum as I embark in this journey. Thanks.
