benfroggg's EV Cushman conversion

YouTuber and Ecomodder lurker BENFROGGG is working on converting an old Cushman to electric.

He's got four videos up so far.

Maybe we can convince him to stop on by and talk more about the project. it's looking really good so far. He's refurbishing a forklift motor to power it. I think I can speak for a few of us in how fun and rewarding that is. I kinda liked the way he did his motor coupling too.

Here's those videos!










Oh, and here's one where he tears apart a machine for components...
