There's now just a small list of things to buy.
0-150 volt meter.
8 15 volt 6 amp power supplies to use as chargers (tested one, works like a charm).
And last but probably not least would be the paint and paint-job for the whole car, I'm thinking about a blue and silver pattern...

This is a Curtis 1205-117, it's not powerful enough for road driving but it made a nice test controller for the motor, it runs smoothly but 36 volts and 400 amps just won't be enough for this project I don't think.
Here is the engine wiring harness dangling from the side of the car, I'm kind of tempted to find someone to airbrush a slightly larger series of wires coming from the hood of the car, kind of a roundabout symbol of "Hey! I don't even need all this extra crap connected, I'm electric!" for the car.
Here's just a picture of the front of the car, quite sad looking right now, but it will be better soon.

Logic board for the controller, it's rather shoddy looking but it works surprisingly well.
And of course the motor and transmission assembly, the motor is a bit on the heavy side.
