Next door to the Rhino Shelter is an old unused, one car garage…after many hours of cleaning and organizing it is now a pretty cool little work space. Here is a Time Lapse video of me hanging up the Costco.com LED shop lights.
I have a Traffic Safety sign project that I promised to myself I would finish before I jack up the VW Bug and start tearing her apart. More on that next.
Thanks for watching!
With the El Niño in full swing (hurray!) I decided to do some testing on the Rhino Shelter. Keeping everything dry is not easy. Here is a short Time-Lapse video of rain water infiltrating my new garage. Not so sexy but important to find the areas where the water is penetrating.
Thanks for watching!
I just received the final version of NORCAL-EV.COM’s new logo from my super talented nephew Kyle R. McFadden (look him up on www.upwork.com where he is quicky gaining a solid reputation for his quality work).
Here it is…
…hats, shirts, etc. in the works…back to the build…this weekend we (my 9 year old daughter and 4 year old son) will be jacking (the kids will get to press the button…video to follow) up the bug with our new http://www.quickjack.com/bl-5000slx-ac-110-volt.html I can’t wait…need to remember to loosen the wheel lug nuts while she is on the ground…one of the 10,000 things I will be learning on this journey.
Thanks for joining me on this journey.
After perusing Craiglist.com for weeks I found my donor vehicle. She is a 1974 VW Super Beetle. I purchased her from Bruce K. (owner of http://www.bugformance.com in San Jose, CA).
Bruce was kind enough to sell me the car (at a discount) without the engine which saved me time and money in the long run. The car was a daily driver and operational prior to the engine being removed.
Here is a short video of the bug at San Jose Auto Steam Cleaning. It was a beautiful day in Northern California…perfect day to clean up the underside of the bug.
Thank you for joining me on this journey!
Hello EV Friends:
Sold the boat…time to start the e-bug conversion I have been talking about for the past 2+ years…super stoked to get going. Below are some fun little time-lapse videos of me constructing steel frame for NorCal-EV.com’s official conversion shop.
When finished it will be a 12′ W X 20′ L X 8′ H portable garage…tan in color…it will look like this but with a way cooler ev inside:
That’s it for now…goal is to get the front/rear doors and main cover on this week…yes, I will post time-lapse video of the process.
Thanks for joining me on the ev ride!
