Fixed. :P

The "selling your old crap to finance the new crap" idea is not lost on me... I'm actually hoping I can get a jump on it, b/c of the car that I happen to be using for my potential EV conversion.

I basically plan on selling almost all of my Honda parts to finance the build of the CR-X.

What I'm really hoping for is at least a 50/50 car, ideally.

50MPH/50Mile range...

This is probably a poke and hope dream, but maybe by the time I get around to being able to do it all, the market will bear a much better price on certain (more expensive) components.
