Mannyman Goes Electric

Mission for 2007 Accomplished: Convert an ICE to an EV.

Hi my name is Manny. In March 2007 I picked up a nice '69 VW pan with upgraded disc brakes,shocks and an electric motor already mated to the tranny. I also acquired a '71 pan/'74 SuperBettle ICE based/'79-'80 styled Bradley GT2 (non-electric version with an '88 title.) from eBay. Took pretty much the whole month to get legal (not me, I was born here) with the DMV and CHP. Now the fun begins. Update: EV completed in December 2007

EV ( Electric Vehicle ) Conversion 5-18-2007

Here's a picture of a BradleyGT2 I found on Kevin Beecher's site. All the info (manuals) I was missing re. GT2Electric are here. I copied some of the docs and placed them on Picasa.

Next I copy/pasted a Warp Impulse electric motor picture via Google Images and the batteries from .
Now I have a basic plan of where the batteries will go.

Wow you've got a good collection of EV's. I'm looking at doing a Lotus conversion. I got a good salvage car and now I'm trying to build the comfort level up to do it.

Any suggestions on motors/batteries? I've been looking at the Warp series (9&11). Seems like more cost effective than say an AC Propulsion one.

hit me up if you have the time to help out a future EV'er - dax.desai[at]

Why I'm doing this.

Yeah, I care about the environment as much as the next guy. And yeah, I'm a nerdy geek. But, when it comes down to it, what really made me spend my free time and money on this endeavor, is knowing that: every time I put in any gas in my car, some money (a penny is too much) is going to people that want to KILL our kids.
"You don’t have to be a military strategist on the order of Sun Tzu or Carl von Clausewitz to understand: It is a bad idea to fund your enemy’s war effort. But every time we fill the tanks of our cars with gasoline we put money in the pockets of terrorists intent on killing Americans."
