VW Build

DIY Electric Car

I collected the car last weekend and, having not seen it in the flesh, i was very pleased with what I'd bought. It's a MK2 golf with 9'' ADC motor fitted, battery tray up front and one sunk into the rear where the fuel tank was. It needs a reasonable amount of attention but is a greater starter project for my first EV. The lights, etc run from a dedicated 12V battery (missing) and all the wiring is there so it should just be a matter of sticking the battery in.
