Just joined up, been into cars my whole life, but I'm new looking into EV stuff. Wanting to do a conversion, but not really sure what I'm looking for yet. I'll probably be lurking a lot more than participating for a bit. I saw the suggested info to include in my initial post, so here goes.

  • Your skill level with auto mechanics and fabrication
I've never fabricated anything, but I'm very proficient with general auto skills, unfortunately electrical things have always been my kryptonite, so this will be a challenge.
  • The range you are hoping to get (how many miles/charge)
Nothing crazy, 100 miles would be fine, this is more going to be a learning experience than intended as a daily or anything.
  • What level of performance you are hoping to get
Fast is fun, but again, not really my priority. Can't be like Nissan versa slow, but not looking for anything crazy.
  • How much money you are willing to put into your project
Not sure at this point, I'm thinking I might go for a motorcycle just to learn and keep it cheap for the first round, but if I could do a decent car for under $10k I'd probably be willing.
  • What parts you've already considered, if any.
Nothing yet. This idea only started yesterday really.

Sorry, wrong coast. I would have you stop by for some hands on viewing of some of our projects, but you are too far away. :)

Wrong coast? Ha I am about as far from either coast as you can get! But no worries, I appreciate the offer.
You are on the southern coast.... well, sort of! :) I am in SC

A motorcycle is a easier project and cost effective. Get something with a chain.
Is this for you, school, or ???
