This week has been rather hectic in the shop. We have run some cables and repaired the parking brake in the Volkswagen, and are modifying the motor, coupler and adapter plate to make everything fit. In the MR2 we have removed the old Thunderskycell and are modifying the battery boxes to accept the smaller, yet more energy dense cells. We will then have to do a rewire of the Battery Management System (BMS) before the car can get back on the road.
Also, we received a very generous donation this week from one of our sponsors, Atlantic Tool and Die!
