Electric Starion - Electric Car Conversion - Part 6
After successfully testing the drivability, it's back to the workshop to
get stuff removed to paint the battery racks and sort the best place for
the charger and finally add the tacho sender to the gearbox adaptor plate.
The fuel port assembly is done now also; I cleaned up the inner rubber
mount and gasket-sealed the hole with a rubber bung where the original fuel
inlet was, and Nathan cut out the new hole for the power through to a new
fascia plate where the 20A connector will be mounted. A shut-off switch is
added which is essential when 'filling up'; some folks use micro switches
like the ones in arcade machines in their EV fuel ports but we're using a
brake switch which will be more durable and it's long thread allows us to
fine-adjust the profile of the switch so that it triggers properly when the
fuel door is opened/closed. An annoying short had to be traced under the
dash (oops, I forgot to ground a 5W resistor), and you'll meet our little
helpers at the end of the video. Cuuuute...

the performance a little bit and should make the batteries last a little
longer. Will have a follow up video of the install and testing.
