Hi, I will describe my Land Rover conversion using Nissan Leaf parts from a Junk Yard in Norway. It is a 1970 Series 2A 88" SWB Land Rover.
It all started in Mars 2021 when I first bought the vehicle.
Petrol engine and gearbox working fine but the chassis were heavily corroded and I had to order a new one from the UK.
Engine and gear box are easy to remove once the body is lifted... The gearbox wasn't clean after 50+ years...
I had the body hanging so I could lift it up and down when I was trying out different setups for battery and drive train. This made it much easier to realize what worked and what didn't since I don't have such advanced tools as 3D scanner or CAD program, yet. I think I have lifted the body a hundred times by now!! 😅
One of may trials with carbon boxes trying to figure out how much batteries I can fit under the bonnet.
New galvanized chassis arrive from the UK.
