I don't want to share my hybrid project until I'm at a point where I can make real progress. As there's nothing spectacular about seeing a tube chassis collecting dust. Hence almost zero OEM hybrid parts will work on it, except maybe the battery packs.
So you have a frame? Do you have plans for a drivetrain or two? OEM parts include battery packs ....and charge receptacles, inverters, DC-DC converters, heaters, heated seats, and DOT approved windshields.
