I wonder if there is a worthwhile way to "recondition" them. I've read of some rejuvenating methods, and personally tried one procedure in my more desperate past (the zapping method - and succeeded), though it wasn't for a deep-cycle project. Better luck on the batteries, but remind me, how much range were you hoping for?
Awesome news MetroMPG! I can't wait to see the video. Does this mean that ForkenSwift will be your new daily driver?

Definitely custom paint and graphics (but yeah, I know it's not your style) -- but I think average people will eat that stuff up as the Neon guys did.

Any plans?
