Nothing to report this week/end. Didn't get a welder. The weather has put a serious crimp in my desire to do a quickie road test. And I have a cold.
Spent a little time looking for angle iron for battery trays. A free bed frame would be nice (though I know some EVers say "proper", thicker angle iron is preferred). Had a couple of leads through the local freecycle group, but nothing just yet.
Yeah, definitely. Remember the batts we have are 6v, so those 4 in the front represent only 24v of our 48v goal. So we'll be putting 4 in the hatchback, or under the rear seat if there's enough room - we're thinking of making a batt box that extends down into the space that the gas tank will be vacating. Probably not enough room though.
where abouts in easter ontario are you? ive got an old bed frame laying around. if you're not too far away i wouldnt mind seeing the forkenswift in exchange for the frames. i could bring my mig welder along too if need be.
