Not really sure about dates. I'm going to be gone for most of the rest of June, so...

Major things left to do are machine work for the shaft coupler and the adapter plate between the motor/tranny. So there's going to be some $ involved there.

The last significant expense will be batteries (eventually... we're probably going to start out with junk batteries though).

If I had to guess, I'd say we'll aim to be done the machine work by end of July. Motor in the car with some wiring by the end of August.

First electron-powered drive in September? Liberal estimates, possibly beatable.
