Honda N360 build (RWD performance EV conversion)

NOT MINE.
I just found it through Jalopnik and thought it was interesting.

"definitely NOT going to fit."
electric N360 project blog

The worst nightmare of classic car purists because they're taking a fairly good condition car, gutting it, and making a vehicle from scratch inside of the existing bodywork. I say who care because they're making use of a previously idle rust bucket.

Wow. That's a pretty amazing build - totally gutted, roll barred, RWD conversion.

I laugh that they refer to it as a "budget" job though. I guess it's all relative...

This is what our '88 Accord needs - shop, money and time like Hector's way. Nice and clean work.

It looks like, it really needs a major auto job there. Wait until they harvest the fruit of this idea from their handwork & effort.
