Ahhh...the ol' paint-it-yourself-because-you-don't-like-the-white trick, gotcha. I didn't think they made them any color other than white...
Sounds like you have a good charger and it sounds like your gearboxes are good. Phew, I hope they hold out for you.
Have fun putting your E-12 back together and we want to see some pix when your done, if possible.
Bob, "Cheerio" is just my thing. A number of people say "Cheers" or "Best Regards", I say "Cheerio" and no, it's not an NS thing that I know of. I actually only use it in print and don't recall ever saying it...I just like being different
Good to see you out and about on the board. To be honest, things are a little rough right now. My wife just lost her dad in mid February and I just lost one of my best friends earlier this week. I'm still unemployed, but have hopes to become an EV converter before the year is out.
There is a nice kit on the Canadian EV site, www.canev.com
, for the New Beetle. My first car was a '71 Super Beetle so I have a soft spot for them in my heart. Also in my heart, besides grief and mourning for my father-in-law and good friend, is GAS ANXIETY. Our local gas prices are CAD$1.439/l which works out to about US$5.46/US gallon. Another reason to stick with EV's...

Those are a few of the serious life matters that have recently passed and on the not so serious side, my tractor is still lifeless and we just got about 15cm or 6" of snow today!!!
I did have a nice chat the other day with Doug Gailbraith of the Electric Tractor Corporation and things look encouraging there, but to be fair to him I'll have to keep what I learned from him confidential until more info comes out publicly from them.
On the bright side, we did receive a little money from Shelly's dad and used it on go on a trip to Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba. We stayed at a nice resort called the Melia Las Dunas and had just about perfect weather for the time we were there. It rained for about and hour one morning then cleared up and was fine later in the day. So, out of a dark cloud came a little sunshine in more ways than one...
Thank you Lord!
They are very energy conscious there as they use flourescent light bulbs, LED bulbs and from a high view at a tower we were in, I could see a number of solar hot water heaters on the roofs of a lot of the newer buildings there. The Melia Las Dunas used only EV's for their grounds support and baggage carts.
So that's what's new in my part of the world. How are things in your neck of the woods, Jerry? Are you ducking flying debris from tornados lately? Man, it's turning out to be another crazy year for extreme weather below the border. To all my American friends, Take Care and Keep Your Head Up ( Or Down ), what ever serves you better!
That's all for now. Take care and Cheerio, Bob!
