Another FUN year ahead of PROJECTS. Our Summer of 2017 starts out with an Upgrade of a GEM. 72V Gem with LEAF Batteries totals out to a little less than 4Kw. The customer was THRILLED with it when we delivered it.
Up Graded our customers GEM with 3.5kw of LEAF Batteries
All the LEAF Cells fit nicely under the seat
NEW Meter !! It was so nice to meet our customer. So many times customers ship their projects and we ship them back and never get to actually MEET the customer… We had a wonderful time in Mississippi !
Next in is a 1966 MG. This was started by another company and never finished and shipped to us with the parts on the front seat… We are going to upgrade it from a 5kwh GEL battery pack to a 15kwh LEAF Battery, this should give our customer about a 50 to 70 mile range.
Taking the motor OUT …taking the Adapter Plate off, Steve is going DIRECT DRIVE with this set up. For some reason the first company had put a LARGE Automatic Transmission in this project. Since this is a very light car, with a low rear end gear ratio, we were able to leave out the transmission.
Steve used his lathe to fabricate a plate to do from the rear end to a longer drive shaft.
Motor with new Coupler Motor in Engine Bay
The original trunk floor had many holes, Steve
fabricated a dual purpose cover, to cover the holes and to hold the new
LEAF BATTERIES. He got 22 of the LEAF Cells in the back here.
Getting 22 of the Cells ready to go into the trunk area.
LEAF CELLS IN !!!!! we still have to install the BMS and the Board to shut off the Charger, but its a good start.
Sundays are a FUN day at the shop. Time to mess around with FUN things. Steve added 6 of the LEAF cells to his bike……. A friend of his clocked him at 30MPH !!!!! faster than he can pedal!
OK….. BACK TO WORK !!!
