The First Shipment of Many

The time has finally arrived for the unveiling of our first electric vehicle conversion ... hopefully the first of many.
The motor peeking out of the box is a 9" AC motor. This should give some decent pickup off the line.
Here it is in all its glory. Seeing it like this for the first time makes me anxious to get it mounted inside the vehicle. But first things first.
Here is the Curtis AC motor controller to squeeze all that lovely torque from the cold, hard casing and motor windings.
Last but not least is some documentation, wire harness and other parts that arrived in the first shipment. We are still waiting on the rest of the parts such as the mounting bracket, 40' of heavy gauge wire, voltage and current gauges, fuses, clamps, etc. So, more excitement to come soon ... stay posted.
