Step by Step DIY EV Conversions

 

Watch as we convert a few EV’s here !

Oklahoma !! The BEST place in the mid west to convert cars and have a great time with GOOD friends.

First UP……………. Fix the Mini Cooper… (X) done !!

Next…………… an S10… but NOT your EVERYDAY… S10


NASTY GAS MOTOR out !!!

The plan was for an 11″ Warp… There it is with a CANeV Adapter Plate.. We Sell these, check out our Parts section.

<
But the plans have changed…and now they are going with TWO of the 9″ WarP motors and using the front Motor Compartment for a GENERATOR, to use as a Range Extender.

A 1K ZILLA…and some 48 of the 180ah CALB Batteries… !!

NEXT…. The Adapter Plate… PLAZMA CUTTER BROKE…. no problem… DRILL WORKS !!

Working on the ADAPTER PLATE  …

Hole Cut…..


Perfect fit….

NEXT…… 3 More Adapter Plates

Waiting On COUPLERS to be delivered…. Almost Ready to go IN the Project.
COUPLERS here !
Lets make SURE they are aligned perfectly, Using the Key Way to make sure they are Parallel. YEP they are… sooooooo on to the next step.


NOW…. lets make SURE these two are perfectly aligned


One on the bottom, one on top… with ONE BATTERY to turn the motors.. to make sure these are perfectly aligned. You can “HEAR” the perfect pitch sound when they are.. Just tap a little lightly on the adapter plate until you hear that perfect sound. ! DONE…

Next… getting this IN the vehicle for the first fit… ( yes.. there are more than one.. this will come out a few times)…

NEXT !!! Make two plates to extend from the frame rails to the motor mounts. These are for the back where the spline shaft goes to the drive shaft.
