I have successfully moved into the new apartment, and can now resume scavenging at a higher rate. These past two weeks have been slow, only picking up 3-5 packs per week now. On the plus side all have been free, thanks to amazing colleagues :)

Here's the latest scavenging average from last week.

2679 - A
2659 - A
2659 - A
2658 - A
2622 - A
2621 - A
2604 - A
2602 - A
2599 - A
2595 - A
2409 - A
2363 - A
2328 - A
2383 - A
2313 - A
2300 - A
2294 - A
2276 - A
1375 - Too low, garbage bin
1361 - Too low, garbage bin
1251 - Too low, garbage bin
1212 - Too low, garbage bin
1119 - Too low, garbage bin
976 - Too low, garbage bin
58 Did not charge within 8h
58 Did not charge within 8h
null - Did not charge within 8h

So out of 27 cells, 18 were usable for the car. 67% success rate.

This sure is addictive :)

Nice project, guess you will be happy after you get all the rust out of you life.

Quick question if you dont mine. What's the cell configuration you are planing to build? What range you are aiming for, what top speed you want to achieve?

Do you have an idea what motor will you be looking for? AC or DC. Will you be using the actual transmision or are you going without it?

Will you try to incorporate accessories to the motor. Seen some using doble shaft motors one end to the power train other side to power ac compresor, power brake, power steering, generator to charge cells for 12v supply to all need items like brake light and such.

Looking forward to your responce.

I've done some thinking, and I'm leaning towards kickstarting this build again. With my newfound EV skills, I feel like I'm in a position where I could build a proper EV conversion. The build would ofcourse be linked to Dala's EV Repair somehow, and maybe in a youtube build format. Thoughts?

Motivational picture, my 1991 NX ca 2014

Short history about the NX shell, along with some progress on cleaning up the remnants after the ICE :)

Parts are being purchased! In this episode I show what my usual approach is when it comes to finding salvage yard bits and pieces!

So the motor that I ordered from Norway is finally here. In this short video, I proceed with tearing it down so that I can start to measure if it will be even possible to mate it with the SR6speed gearbox. Enjoy!

Last weekend I got the pedal setup figured out, here's a video on how hard it was to fit the Volkswagen Touran drive-by-wire into the car :)

The adapter plate & clutch adapter is now aligned and permanently attached to each other. Feels good having this crucial step completed! Check out how we managed with the adapter plate using only hand tools!

Still haven't finished the video, we are going to try and fit all fabrication needed to make the motor sit permanently in the engine bay. Another sneak peak on the axle carrier bracket fabrication progress:

So here it is. This is the most effort the videos have taken so far, I had massive problems with the axle carrier bracket. So glad this is finished now and I can focus on the battery :D

So now my focus has shifted towards getting the suspension sorted:


And also getting the battery mounted:


Videos on both these topics incoming soon!
