Newbie from California
I know some will think right off the bat seeing my on an ecomodder forum and being from California that I am an environmentally conscious liberal who wants to do his part to save the world one gallon at a time.

This could not be farther from the truth.

I am a conservative who thinks global warming is actually a cycle that the world has been on of warming and cooling for millions of years and nothing we do is going to do much to affect that. I do however realize that some day (at our current rate soon) we will exhaust the fossil fuel supplies that the world has to offer. I hope to do my part to delay the inevitable.

I have a background in computers and a basic grasp on electronics and mechanics, but numbers in these areas tend to mean nothing to me without extended thought on the subject. I am hoping to in spite of that fact complete my first electric car by Easter.

Welcome to the site Howser. Everyone has their own reason for doing this. :)

What kind of car were you thinking of making?

Thanks, both for welcoming me and helping moderate this awesome forum :)

I am looking to convert an electric vehicle, still trying to decide on the exact car to use as a shell. I am finding that a lot of the surviving Metros and Sprints in this area are automatic transmission, which is giving me a little headache making me wonder about using an early 90's Civic coupe instead. I have been reading a lot of other people's conversions on here and somehow I think I will end up a little like vpoppv's "How not to convert a metro" with hand-me-down batteries and selling off ICE parts to fund the project.
