Project Land Yacht (BMW 5-series EV conversion)

Firstly Merry Christmas to all Secondly I'd like to introduce the new project that i have christened the land yacht! Donor vehicle is a 2001 BMW 520I E39 5 series. Equipped with a 6 cylinder 2.2L petrol engine that has a few minor problems This is going to be replaced with a 13" rebuilt forklift motor , 1200amp controller , 15kw 3 phase charger and a pack of 60 CALB 180Ah grey cells. Let's see what happens ........

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.
