Salvage S10 high level design

My desire is to remove as much mechanical stuff as I can:
- ICE engine
- automatic transmission
- radiator
- gas tank
- exhaust system

The main parts of the conversion are targeted to be:
- direct drive from 1770 rpm 40 hp 3 phase 575 Volt electric motor to the 3.43 rear end
- Industrial VFD mounted in the front portion of the cargo box, with heat sinks bolted to the box frame, 302 amps at 575 VAC continuous
- Industrial computer mounted in the back seat of the extended cab to control the VFD, interface to the truck sensors, and control the charging
