98 dodge neon

Hi Guys, I have purchased my Neon and have started to remove my shot motor and would appreciate any tips or tricks to help with my conversion. I have downloaded the video's as far as they go and I really really appreciate your generosity showing the really hard parts like aligning the motor and tranny and some of the pitfalls of using that type coupler. I will keep in touch if you would like and I intend to get busy this September when the weather cools off. thanks Bill

This is awesome, is it going to stay that loud though? I wish I could do this with my neon.

Video #6

Hey Guys,

Here is video number 6.
If you have been following on the YouTube Playlist, you would notice that #6 was skipped. That's because it covered some work Tom did one time when I couldn't make it out. A friend of his shot it with the video mode on his point-n-shoot digital still camera, and then gave me the files.

I was cleaning my desk today, finally found the disc again, edited together into something roughly making sense, and uploaded it to YouTube.

This video covers removing the engine and has a nice shot at the end of everything that got removed in the "De-ICEing".




PS: This link:
http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=...view=playlists
should take you to my playlists on YouTube. That way, you can directly go to videos specific to just the Neon project, just the Electro-Metro, etc.

Let me know when you're ready to sell a kit

I've got a 95 dodge neon with a fresh paint job and a blown engine that I'd like to convert. I've been looking for a kit but haven't found one yet. Do you have any plans to sell a conversion kit?

Sorry, no plan for a kit.

This is a completely custom project.
I hope it gives you some good ideas though!

I just got an understated e-mail from Tom that he could finally sweep that one spot in his garage that he hasn't been able to get to for the last year - because it was covered by that car!

He did the first test of the car moving under its own power - not into the road yet - no headlights!

Sounds like we might be doing an electric car ride-along video or something similar next time I am over there.
