How are the rules there regarding EV conversion? Here in Holland we can't have a motor or controller be DIY or from something else, it has to have a certificate for use in a road vehicle, and to get one, costs a ton of money. Strangely enough, importing cars that have been approved in other EU states with much less strict rules is totally okay, so if I can find one that lets me use an old forklift motor or an industrial AC motor and a self-designed controller, then I can afford an EV conversion too. (Not going to put €20k of motor/controller in a €1k car..)
