Part 7 of the Gramps Build!
Got a question about the build? The forum has a dedicated thread here:
Get behind MCM and show the world that you DIY with mad stuff from the MCM
Facebook for daily updates!
Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline

efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it

$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered
