If you can't figure out how to put them on the wiki, let me know and I'll stick them in a directory. Makes more sense to keep it on this server.

It wouldn't allow me to upload zip or pdf files, only images. I stuck them on my server for the time being. They are all linked to on the wiki. If you'd like, download them and move them to a directory on an ecomodder server.

This is coming along well for a days work I'd say!

It HAS been a very productive day! Man, it's nice to have "people". My people will take care of that. hahaha!

Hey, I finished all of the drilling and etching of the first power section. There are no real mistakes. I felt like I was holding a beautiful baby. I even burped it. I think I can really improve and simplify the order of drilling. MUST GET CNC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope that Roger Heukeroth or that guy that has the CNC that I always forget the name of!!! (ADAM! YA!) can help with the 15 beta testing controllers etching and drilling. If I'm the only builder/assembler, they will get their controllers some time after christmas, 2075, since I'm a little on the slow side. My son's nap time is only 1 1/2 hours each day. Then it's, "DADDY, OUTSIDE!!! FLOWER MAMA!" Note: He picks old nasty dandylions that have had all their seeds blow away, and gives them to Sabrina, calling them "flowers".

Oh man, that's going to be some friggin bulk purchasing power. I want to see just how cheap it can be done!.

ZeroGasoline, I wish I had a cool name like that. Makes me sad. Instead, I have stupid MPaulHolmes.

Hey Paul,

You must be really, really bad with names. LOL My name is ADAM. LOL

If you want to send me some information about the etching that needs to be done I can get to work writing the code for the machine. I can do the 2 that you still have to do as well if you want. I have been thinking about buying some of that PCB's off that guy on ebay, but have not gotten around to it yet.

Just let me know.

Again, My name is ADAM. LOL

Hi Adam! haha! ya. I did it. I'm so good at remembering now. Um... Oh ya. I just got an email from that foul temptress with the dangerous insect name (Bee, in Australia). Futurlec is officially working on the PCB stuff, and it will be done in 8 days. Then it will be around 2-3 years to ship it by row boat from Australia, then maybe some testing, and bam! Another notch! Bam Bam Bam!

I'm going to tin Wherewolf's bus bars really soon. some time this week. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Thank you, again, Wherewolf! You saved those 3 guinea pigs a fair chunk of change! I needed 9 bus bars, and he sent me 9. How fortuitous.

Hi paul,
I've not been on here for quite a while (since I got a new job I like, I sleep at nights, instead of stay up and surf!!) I just thought I'd rib ya a little with my name (tech2), bet you can't tell what I do for a living???

The project looks like it's going along real smooth. Seems like you have made a lot of progress since I was here in mid feb.

I am about ready to start my own mod on a small chevy cavalier and a 24 volt commercial motor I am trying to aquire. If I can get the guy to sell it to me.

later...........jb

Are you a TECH!? hahaha! I'm an MPaulHolmes. If he won't sell it, just come at night when he's not around, and steal it. No, that would be wrong. Just borrow it. Once you get that car done, you are going to love sitting at stop signs, in dead silence, and then driving away. It's really really fun!
