January 2013……. Time to START working o…….. THE HULK
First the MOTOR…. 9″ or 11″ NET GAIN WARP Motor????well… I FOUND a lot of PARTS around the shop….. and I think there are enough BROKEN, blown UP motors for me to put them all together and come up with ONE good motor…
I decided to CLEAN and PAINT the Motor…Since the Motor is made up of LOTS of broken WarP 9 Motor parts, all put together to make ONE good motor,after I got it all together and working… I took it apart and am cleaning and going to paint it.
Step one… clean and get it ready to paint.
Painted with Primer .. I did 3 coats
3 coats of color.. GREEN for the HULK .. !! pretty cool color??
Put it back together
A girl’s gotta have her “BLING”… this is for GEORGE H. over at NET GAIN MOTORS !!!Yes… it IS a WARP 9 motor !!! ( these guys over there are the best !!)
Stay tuned……… ADAPTER plate next… !!
HULK TOWED down to the SHOP…. Now to get that Tranny OUT of that truck
Audrey CLEANING the motor…. ( Girls…. Steve SAID this was “FUN”…..Note to self… If a MAN say its “FUN”… it is probably HARD work… THEY don’t want to do ).
We have my “V8” look…..
Here is the first coat before the BLACK………….
2011 and 2012 Projects BELOW…. see the cool chevy and corvette below with TWO motors….
This is Audrey’s GREEN BEAN !!!!
Well the GREEN BEAN is IN the shop…. getting ready for smelly old GAS Engine to come out !
Steve found me an old Toyota Turcel Tranny that is just PERFECT for this project. !!
Washed it up, took the front end down, set the Tranny on it and seems like it will be perfect !
Making the HUB using a LovJoy…..
Audrey Doing a little Welding on the HUB … its getting there folks !!!
NOW for the Adapter Plate… lining up the tranny on a piece of steel.
The Shift Set up and Linkage worked out PERFECT !!! and they work like a charm. The plate still has to be trimmed a little…but I may not, I may just leave it for show purposes…the motor is an 8″ and Steve cut just a little out of the frame so that it sits nice and level. This project is coming together so easily… and we are having sooo much fun !!
Ok.. Steve got everything all lined up.. just perfect TOOK IT ALL APART and painted the… “Sub Frame”???
Put it all back together and back INTO the car !!!
Here it goes.. back UP into the car !!! tires on.. check the turning radius… (Thanks Dr. Mini)…

March 2nd ..
Received the COURT ORDER giving me TITLE to my car. WHAT a fiasco THAT was.! The Court part was easy, dealing with the IDIOTS at DOR to get it registered is a study in how costly and inefficient we can run our government in this day and age of hard economic times. (DOR… lets just see how many times and how much time and money we can get this woman to spend on getting a title…. lets do everything the HARD way, over and over again and cost her mega $$$$ in time and money, not to mention tax dollars in the form of a POLICE OFFICER’S time to verifying the VIN# ..not only ONCE for court on OUR FORMS…but lets just let it all take 30 days THEN tell her..oooppss we need the SAME form signed AGAIN by a police officer) !
NOTE TO SELF… in the state of FLORIDA IF you have the TITLE mailed to you….. and somehow you LOOSE IT.. it costs $78.50 to get ANOTHER ONE.. .BUT .. if you allow the DOR to keep it ELECTRONICALLY???? it only costs $10.00 to print it WHEN you sell the vehicle… hmmm seems like the cheapest way to go. We lost a LOT of things in the last hurricane… replacement costs get to be high after a storm.
MARCH 3RD .. BACK TO THE DOR TO GET MY TAG !!!!!
GOT IT !!!
My 1967 Austin Morris is now legally REGISTERED and INSURED in my name !!!!

***************************************** EV EXPO SHOW – Tampa, FL ********************************************
It wasn’t all about speed. I was stunned by the sight of a very unlikely electric—a 1967 Morris MK 1100, rare even in its native England. The car, which runs an eight-inch DC motor, an EVnetic Soliton Junior controller, and a 192-volt battery pack (19 kilowatt-hours), is capable of 100-mile range. It was built by Audrey Martin of
Green Shed Conversions in Fort Pierce, Florida. Audrey Martin and partner Steve Clunn have converted more than 180 vehicles into EVs, from a Lamborghini kit car to a Chevy S-10 pickup and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. “Green Bean,” as the Morris is named, was a $500 purchase converted by Audrey herself with Steve overseeing the work. Now it’s her daily driver. When she wants extra range, she just throws in an extra battery pack, because the back seat was already missing. Here’s a closer look at the car on video:
