Gav's EV Conversion - Step 18 - The Inspection

It's legal at last! Two tough inspections and a sea of paperwork later, the electric Mitsubishi Tredia is legally allowed on the road! I was as nervous as hell during the inspections but it turns out that it was all worth it as I now have a fully functioning, road-legal electric car! This episode begins with transporting the car up to Auckland City for the main Certification test, then transferring the car all the way back to New Plymouth for the Warrant of Fitness test. Once I had those tests under my belt and a WOF sticker on my windscreen, I could go to the post office and... well, get more forms to fill out. But once I'd filled THOSE out, I was given my registration sticker! Next step was to start my "Road User Charges" (another tax) and away we go - Time to hit the roads! I celebrated by taking the car out for it's first legal go-anywhere road trip! I even passed two gas stations, one of them might look familiar! As always, I welcome your comments and tips. But in the mean time, I'm off for another drive! ;) Cheers!

Gav's EV Conversion - 19 - Frequently Asked Questions
Now that the conversion's complete I thought I'd tackle all those questions I get through my inbox. The questions answered in this video are the most common I get asked on almost a daily basis by people at supermarkets, on the street or by email. I'm sure many of you have the same questions too, so on with the video! For all the other technical questions, check out my FAQ page or my Tech Specs page at www.KiwiEV.com I admit, it's not a terribly exciting video compared to the others, but it's important for anyone using my conversion as a platform for their own.





An Electric Vehicle Conversion in a Garden Shed
This video, made for the Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival, Saturday, April 24, 2010, in Mechanicsburg, PA, is an overview of my electric vehicle (EV) conversion from beginning to end covering many of the critical parts of the electric Saturn project. I had the video looping on a TV next to the exhibit of my Saturn EV conversion. My hope was to draw people to my booth with this video, but the picture on the TV was too hard to see in the outside light and the video itself was just too long, 10 minutes. It was simply the wrong venue to play this kind of a video -- lesson learned. All in all I spoke with a very diverse group of people about my EV conversion and electric car technology in general. This was the first public showing of my electric car, it was a good day great day. For more information about my electric Saturn, please visit www.zuglet.com





Gav's EV Conversion 12 - Installing the Battery Racks
At last! The battery racks are in! After a some battery choice problems, some battery rack sizing problems and a few delays I've finally got all three racks installed. It took a while and there was many a stressed moment but at last the racks are complete. The rear rack is bolted into the floor with 5mm thick steel bar underneath to hold it in place. The front racks are welded to the chassis (not the sub frame) to ensure the crumple zones remain... well, crumpley in an accident. :) Now it's time to get the control-box and Curtis Controller wired up and visit the bank for the batteries. It's full speed ahead! The conversion will be complete in no time!
