Well it’s been a long time since the last post and time is always at a premium, two grand children have arrived, I have changed jobs and my son has written off his first car (he’s fine thankfully).
Well the annual fuel bill for calendar year 2011 was just over $7500!! The wife god bless her said "enough we need an electric car", music to my ears so the bike went on hold and the car is moving along quite well.
Here are some mug shots.... enjoy

Small Tardis of a car with room for 4 big people like me.

 Yes there's my baby in the back ground only needs batteries and a chain.


Hole to fill

3 small pistons, 1 big electric motor, 4 x the toque hope Mr gearbox is up to it

Just glue this piece to that piece 

 The beginnings of a cheep adapter plate

$80 for the coupler however I will need to machine this

12 mm and 13 mm machined off the coupler and the the center of the "spider" machined out

 Shows motor in housing with top plate for mounting controller and the like, motor has double ended shaft, hoping to drive air conditioner pump

Here is the hot water system for the demister, a cylindrical heater as used on the barrel of an injection mold machine and a catch thank fro the local speed shop

Just another image of the heater

And on test, just boiling water for a coffee

Brackets for the battery box this is going where the fuel tank was

 Some idea of size

And they go here

Yes the creepy doll is watching Bye for now.
