Build Your Own Electric Car video series FREE on YouTube!

Hi Everybody!

As you may recall, I converted a Geo Metro to electric back in 2008 and documented it here at Ecomodder.

Later, I made a How-To instructional DVD from it. At the time, there were no videos on how to build your own electric car, so I made one.

I've now converted that DVD and have posted it for anyone to freely view as a watchlist series on YouTube.

It's a little dated in that it covers DC motors and lead batteries, but I still think a person can learn plenty from it. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed working on the original project.

Here's a link to the playlist,

-Ben Nelson
