Just got back from Ivan's - the 2nd strut/brake assembly was swapped, brakes bled, and I think it's safe to say we've officially had our way with the red car. Sunday we'll tow it out to Ivan's family's wood lot. (We're hanging on to it just in case we need parts in the future.)

After the holiday, next job is to fabricate the motor shaft/input shaft coupler, and motor/tranny mounting plate. We can do this using the red car's tranny. We don't have to pull the blue car's ICE until we're ready to install the electric motor (or unless someone wants to buy the engine).
