Hey D a n n y! thanks for the enthusiasm, I was feeling a little like a crazy man for a second there, haha glad to hear I have someone into it as much as I am! I'm actually thinking a smaller van would be better for me the more that I think about the logistics and cost's etc... as much as I'd love to go full all out into it with a sprinter van 4x4 etc. Maybe when the time comes to buying the donor I will get a sudden urge to go huge again! But watch this space something will happen. Send me a PM so I can talk details with you about what you were thinking or thoughts you had about your project maybe there will be some ideas that I could use with mine? I'll also check Damien Maguire's channel now to see if there is anything I can mooch off of his projects.
Well if you're looking to go smaller now, then your options are almost endless. There are a ton of smaller vans out there that have been converted to electric. The VW vans are a very popular option as well and tend to be my favorites. One project that came to mind when you described your desires, was a vanagon conversion - http://www.evalbum.com/1727
And of course if your pockets are deep, maybe you could find a Volkswagen Syncro out there, providing 4x4 capabilities!!!!
Like I said, endless possibilities nowadays. As more and more production line EVs make their way into the junkyards, guys like us are slowly accumulating resources to make just about anything happen. I recommend, find your donor, and pull the trigger on it. Then you'll have an idea of what you are working with in terms of space and capabilities. And then build onto that based on your budget!
