Smile Firefly Electric Conversion

Hiya, all. I've been collecting EV parts for a few years now, and finally, a month back, I bought a high mileage '98 firefly with a blow trans for cheap to do the conversion on.

Here she is:

A little bit of rust, but nothing major:

Interior is in damned good condition. Why is beyond me:

A lot of highway KMs on it:

Best of all, it has intermittent wipers!

Tired engine:

Came with some shiny new parts on it though, that I will save for my Purple '95:

Well, there she is.

I'll post pics of my progress later. Don't expect me to finish it in the next week. I'll putter along on this as I get time.

Glad to be finally doing it, though!
