Tuesday's News

Steve made an enclosure for battery electronics today and mounted it where the gas tank used to be. The rest of the BMS wiring is run, too. He also got the heater core out from under the dash. That's a relief -- I was dreading getting access to it.

The throttle unit is operated by the cable from the "gas" pedal and sends a 0-5 volt signal to the speed controller.

The old heater core had engine coolant running through it. The replacement will be a simple ceramic heater, similar in power to two hair dryers wired together. That will be more than enough to heat the interior, especially because it's a small car.

Wednesday should see the last batteries squeezed into place. And then ... ?
