Hi, first post.
live in regional Australia and have reasonable mechanical skills however never played with EVs
and have no idea what is needed to build an ev.

car is a Suzuki LJ80-1 and weighs around 650kg it would be good to achieve 90kph and 100km
range. The original motor is 800cc.
I would prefer to keep the gearbox and transfer if possible

no Power steering, no assisted brakes. hell it doesn’t even have doors

what size and sort of motor should i be looking for and what do I need to make it go?
