    Cool I’ll try that after this second round of midterms… Did I mention how much I love driving my bug? I get complements on the paint everywhere it goes. IMG_E0325[1]

     

    Nice Pic Glenn….  Buffing goes along ways…

    So do the headlights even work on this thing now? Or are you still trying to get by without them?

    Headlights working great. Front turn signals not so much but I have some ideas on upgrading them that I’m going to cut next week

    Our project is going full steam ahead and we are super stoked on the progress we’ve made thus far but we still have a long way to go.Bug explosion

    I tried to make it look simple but there’s really a lot more that goes into it than that!

    Thanks for your responses! That battery box is supposed to be sitting behind the rear seats but I like the roof rack idea 😉

    Maybe we could do a solar panel on the roof rack to charge up the 12V

    Glenn’s pitching his project at school right now. Sounds like he’s getting good feedback from professors and stuff

    Glen you gotta re-think the battery mounting. Make a custom pan half battery cage and use a new pedals arrangement. Like a Tesla.

    Light weight, short driving range, 50mph max, DIY conversion for around $5K….. 😎  That would sell… 😎   smaller, less, fewer batteries. quicker charge etc..

    I only need to be able to go about 50-70 miles max round trip where I live… I’m only going to drive it locally.    I’m using it to save money gas and help the enviro..( yeah right..)
