Re: [EVDL] EV Bones

I contacted them recently and was informed that they were no longer in
buisness and were only taking care of the customers they had already.

Re: [EVDL] EV Bones

I've been trying to find a VW bug, to convert for my
11year old daughter. We want to start refurbishing it
from the ground up, slowing getting it totally
restored, and converted to electric by the time she's
16. I hope we're able to have better battery
technology by then.

Re: [EVDL] EV Bones

Hello M. Barkley,

Excellent project. There are several VW bugs on the EV Album, 17 by a
quick count, not including the Ghia, van, square back, pickup, sand
buggy, kit cars, and even "New Beetles". A motor adapter should be
somewhat easy to find, and there are even kits of parts to electrify the
beetle. The album has cars using anywhere from a 6.7 inch, 8 inch, or 9
inch motor. One car only uses 5 batteries in the front, 10 mile range,
with plenty of room in the motor compartment for more batteries. Other
examples have the range quite a bit higher.

With battery weight over the front end, and the possibility of
converting to disc brakes, the braking of the beetle can be improved.

Good luck!

Alan

Re: [EVDL] EV Bones

This is the place to go for all your VW parts. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/
Better than Craig's list and EBay combined at least when it comes to vdubs.

If you are in or close to the Texas here is another to watch.
http://dallasaircoolers.org

If you are in the dallas area I have a local body man\mechanic that has a
couple for sale as well.
