Smile North West Irelands newest EV Project

Hi and thanks to Everyone on Ecomodder. This is my introductory post! hopefully you guys and ladies too will offer your knowledge and tips as Your exploits have truly inspired me to turn over to bat. power.

Stumbling upon Forkenswift on Youtube set those ideas that had been rattling round my brain agitatingly "alive".

So! Added to the publicity value an electric Car would add to a Save Cancer Services Campaign for Sligo General hospital. I started the Wild RovER over a week ago.(Temporary name. Name the Beast will be a local competition running soon to promote Green Irish issues and the local save the Cancer services campaign..

I,m totally NEW to electrics but believing I can learn from you guys, avoiding likely pitfalls by tapping in on your own experience(s). Your generosity in helping each other was why I signed up has been so evident as I cautiously --at first--explored your furums for reassurance of the feasability of running with this idea.

Donor Car;- 1993 Toyota 3 Door Hatchback(European Model)
currently awaiting removal of seized petrol engine.Not really a problem as a local neighbour has offered a front loader to extract the offending item

Donor vehicle 2.:- Crown Fork Lift Reach truck 36 volts for electric parts.

Motor:- 48 volt Forklift Motor (Specs not exactly available at this time but it threatens to be a beast)

Adaptor plate of 20mm Alloy sourced. Eco engineer on standby for milling and drilling.

I,m hoping serendipity will lead the way to other parts as and when they are required.

Basically thats it! Here I am, an Irish Scot Gladf to be part of your merry band. Old in years but young in electric spirit

If anyone wants to proffer any advice as this project develops I,ll be tremendously thrilled to receive it. If anyone wants full information on the campaign please do not be afraid to e-mail me and i,ll give fuller details.

Wow!!! Go for it. This will be great. If you are going for more than 48 volt the Paul and Sabrina Cheap controller would be a good way to get more power.

What are you looking for in batteries?
