Anyone done an EV conversion of a GM J-body?
 
Has anyone here done an EV conversion of a mid-'80's GM J-body car like a Pontiac Sunbird? I'm thinking about purchasing an '87 Sunbird Convertible as a fun car, and am hoping to hear about other experiences doing a conversion, good and bad.

Bill the Engineer.

A few have...probably no one on here though.

Joe DiPietro's 1996 Pontiac Sunfire
Alain St-Yves' 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
Phil's 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
James Wolfe's 1982 Pontiac J2000 I*R*ELECTRIC

Good links, thanks.

Haven't finished the deal on the Sunbird yet, but hoping it is as good as advertised.

I'd check the diyelectriccar forum.

Although diyelectric has gotten goofy as of late.

Yeah, that's why I stopped browsing the site.

But If I were there for a specific project it would still be a good resource.

Bill the Engineer 12-29-2018 10:55 AM

Sigh. The Sunbird was worse than I hoped, so I passed.

New site owners scared off the regulars by eliminating the garage entries which was the idea of the site in the first place

Also random brokenness and spam

I wasn't going to mention the plethora of self annointed experts of everything using microsoft style replies.
