Fuel tank out

Not much to show. Saturday removed the fuel tank. My son refined the zilla to e46 interface some more. Has the status messages appearing on the radio now.

It lives...Again

Finished hooking up the zilla last night.
Connected the rpm sensor at lunch and took it for a little drive.

Déjà vu

Turns out my daughter claimed the red bmw as her ride. But later when it needed a new engine I bought another E46 that had a bad clutch.  Got it for only a little more than what a used engine cost.  So project car for me :-)

After doing some other projects, I finally took some time to work on the ev. The look is so familiar. Same parts, different car. Still need to mount the controller and do some wiring before it can drive.

Used steel for the battery racks this time.  Took too much work to weld Aluminum with my equipment.  Much quicker and easier for me with steel.
