Hey from just south of Selmer. Let me know if you have questions on where to find things locally, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Good to meet you. I'm grateful for your offer to help. I'm just getting my feet wet. It's going to take me a while before I can get started, but I'm reading as much as I can. SO much to learn

Hi jumper, I would like to build an EV as well and am just getting my feet wet in the topic as well. I think I might try my hand at building an EV motorcycle to start with. Consider me subscribed when you start your build. Also welcome to emodder.

Thanks for the welcome. I sent you a PM. I had to look up where Selmer was and you're just south of us alright. That's cool. We should have coffee sometime midways and share ideas

Hi whaemmel, I used to live in Chula Vista. Just south of San Diego. Always loved going across the border and just looking around.

I like where this is going. I want to build an EV from scratch as well. My "dream car" per say. The approach I will take is start small. I will first build a power wheel for my daughter, then a go-kart, the a full scale car. I believe those projects will provide me with the knowledge to build a car from scratch without the worry of throwing too much money at an overwhelming project. Just my two cents. But first I have to finish my storage shed, insulate my garage, build a home addition, and replace all my carpet with laminate flooring. My wife is working me like a dog.

HI Pete, seems like there's a bunch of us just getting our feet wet. Your idea of starting small is good. I think that's something I should consider too. Before reading your post, I was just going to jump in without knowing a thing (pretty much). And with me, money IS an issue so starting small would be good for me.

You also sound like me in that I have to do some things before I get started. But I'm not going to be as busy as you. Sounds like your lady is really putting you to work.

I don't know if a thread exists already, but we might start one that's like "EV building for dummies" (like the books)

I would also think that the more experienced members would help out.

just a thought...
