Sterling Kit Car to EV

DIY Electric Car

So I bought a Sterling kit car and what I want to do, eventually, is turn it to electric. Sterling Kit Car to EV. It had been sitting for the past decade so I'm going to replace the full brake system (going all disc) as well as switching it from a swing axle to IRS (pan is a 1966.). I acquired a 1st Gen Nissan Leaf motor, transmission, inverter, and much of the wiring harnesses to them. Plus a set of axles.
