I've recently taken the plunge and decided to convert a car to being fully electric.  I've also decided to try and document the process in blog form so all my friends can follow along and maybe some future converters can learn from my experience.  Stay tuned for updates and pictures.

Some of the basics and technical specs:
1977 Porsche 924
Warp 9 inch Series Wound DC Motor
DIY Controller based on the Open Source ReVolt Design (planned)
Approx 200 volt Battery pack made of 60 CALB 70 Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries (planned)
Existing Air Conditioning will be retained
Manual Steering
Vacuum Assist Brakes Retained
Estimated final vehicle weight 2600 lb
Estimated Range 48 miles
Estimated 0-60 time 9-10 seconds

Start Date: November 29th (when I bought the car)
