- Less volatile chemistry, but at the expense of energy density
- better passive cooling(?), no need(or possibility) of liquid cooling
- smaller individual modules, more space efficient when stashing into various nooks like fuel tank space, around the motor, under the seats, etc.
- more BMS choices

Care to shed some light on what you're aiming for, in terms of performance, range, 2nd life batteries?  Hot rod or something more practical?
I like the size of the Tesla batteries, the best possible density and C rating is key. 
BMS is a no brainer for me Tongue

Light wheels and tires are always a big and easy savings. Trade all interior  items for a couple of fiberglass race seats on light brackets. These are items I would have on my hunt down/wish list. What type of motors are you planing?
I have no goals other than be able to drive it to get bread n milk! Everything else is a bonus. But I do want it safe, well finished, reliable & reproducible

I have the same idea with a fiat 126, good luck, i will follow this one with a close eye.
Fiat 126 sounds like a neat project!

Yeh, won't be much good now - I remember having those books 20 years ago. Might flick through them for old times sake.

The planning part of this project completely neglected that I don't own the tools to even undo a wing nut. My current tool box consists of what remaining from budget auto parts stores tool kits all missing their 10mm sockets and spanners and the ratchets only work in one direction and 2/3rds of them lent to 'mates' Off to buy a basic toolkt, wheel dollies, trolly jack ... feel stupid for not looking at the associated costs. Will need a parts washer, sandblaster kit & an air compressor I think as well.

That'll work I think! 50kg of batteries under the seats, 50kg in the boot, 75 under the bonnet!

It is constantly on my mind... I just want to get right to 'fixing it' but the dam postman is slow and the bank balance is weak.
