Way better off to find another good hood to start with. Just because you can save some things, doesn’t mean you should.RustabusParticipantApril 10, 2019 at 9:50 pmPost count: 1759
Uugh!!!! Yup, new hood! Less time, nicer end product! That one is a wall hanger to remind you to look when you back up!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂John JonesKeymasterApril 12, 2019 at 8:36 amPost count: 5910

Sucks that this happened in my own driveway after we got it looking good, but Will has the know-how to fix it and now the money to fix it with his new job.
The project is going ahead without the bug at the moment, getting all of our batteries and motor components working together on a benchRustabusParticipantApril 12, 2019 at 8:09 pmPost count: 1759
You don’t need the Bug til assembly, tell your dumb Bro to fix the hood and have it ready!!!! No clip damage?????? That was a Big hood dent!!!!!???GlennmossModeratorMay 29, 2019 at 1:49 pmPost count: 180
Finished up my senior design. We ended up realizing that there wasn’t going to be enough time outside of regular class to design, fabricate, and test the rear suspension this semester, so we focused our efforts on getting a running drivetrain. We tested and mapped the pins for each battery which tell us important things such as charge states, current outputs, and temperature. We were able to test the charge and discharge the batteries and run the Small Drive Tesla motor on a bench. Here’s a picture of the battery box we built and some artwork I put together.
Here is a photo of our testing setup during our presentation.BBWBParticipantMay 30, 2019 at 7:50 amPost count: 735
What you going to use the gas tank for now? Bootleg whiskey?

Finally got the hood put back on Glenns car! Pics later.68tintopParticipantJune 27, 2019 at 11:39 pmPost count: 683
Yo don’t fuck up this car anymore. Trade it to me some cash and the rusty single cab out back and u can have a nice OG BAY. Fuck electric bullshit. BUYATesla kid. Then u can cruise Cali in style with a bed in back when needed. Zoey needs a ragtop and I don’t have space for 2 buses. Kinda sucks.😬😜🤪and I need a new project. Man I am itchin as we speakJohn JonesKeymasterJune 28, 2019 at 6:17 amPost count: 5910
Jesse.. You are saying, you would trade your dialed in bay windows, road warrior first year low light bay for a rag top bug?? You can’t sleep in that thing!!!!!!!!! 😎John JonesKeymasterJune 28, 2019 at 6:18 amPost count: 5910
of course, that would be a better choice for Zoey than the bus with a bed!!!!!!!! 😎AndymParticipantJuly 1, 2019 at 9:56 amPost count: 897
Hey Willy or Glenn.. myself and Zach my helper have been talking about electric swaps the past few days..
do you have a Parts list you used? Looking at ev west and it’s alot of info to take in..
can you give me a basic dumbass guy breakdown? I’d like to do one.

Ooo I’ll tell Glenn to hop onGlennmossModeratorJuly 2, 2019 at 5:20 pmPost count: 180
Definitely I have a file I could share with you. With the EV scene at the moment there are two directions: convert with new industrial motors or convert with used EV motors.
I chose the latter because it integrates several items that I know reduce the reliability and offers better ‘bang’ for buck.
I have a function diagram that illustrates it pretty well I’ll post up laterGlennmossModeratorJuly 3, 2019 at 8:23 pmPost count: 180
Here’s the functional schematic. The gray box is supposed to outline the motor that we used, so all of those parts plus the transmission were one piece. However, if you go with the industrial motor you will have to buy the motor, transmission adapter, and motor controller separately. There are obviously more parts then just this, but it gives you a better idea. It definitely isn’t cheap just yet, but hopefully once the market becomes saturated with EVs we will see this being a much more enticing option. If you want a further breakdown on the parts we used email me firstname.lastname@example.orgJohn JonesKeymasterJuly 4, 2019 at 7:26 amPost count: 5910
Hey Andy…. Volkswagens came with engine’s….
