Second conversion, basic DC

I found this 1995 Metro on craigslist, and drove to Santa Cruz with my trailer in tow in case it looked like a good deal. It had been converted back around the turn of the century, and it was wrecked, according to the add. I saw that there was a Raptor 1200 amp controller, an ADC 8" motor, and a Manzanita pfc 20 charger, so when I negotiated the price down to what I would pay for just those components, I loaded the wreck up onto my trailer and brought it into my shop here in Sacramento.

I reworked this car, replaced the 1750 lbs of flooded lead acid batteries with lithium, gave it my treatment, and prettied it up a little.

I will post the rest of the build and all the details here very soon, stay tuned
