One thing I see a lot of in videos, and you would have an advantage here, is they say "next, I took my electric motor and transmission to the machine shop" and the next part is installing the result in the car! It's like "hold on, you farmed out 90% of the work??" Adapter plate and transmission adaptor should be a big hunk of any "How To" video on EV's IMHO. I think also showing different options could be helpful. If you could get a hold of different batteries, controllers, and motors to briefly discuss, it could be a big plus. Maybe you could spend a little time about donor vehicle selection. I had someone ask me if I could convert a big lifted 4x4. Sure, how many feet do you need to go?? :P
