Thanks for that - I started to read the links and realised that they open to a massive collection of interesting issues on this. Think it will take a couple of weeks to digest!!!! Thanks also to those who have emailed me as it is interesting to chat to others in similar planning stages and those who...

Thanks guys. I am trying to speak to a human on that web contact so will let you know in due course. Steve - if I dont get anywhere - I should like to come back to you to find out where you aquired the bits and pieces for your conversion. I think I understand batteries and electric motors BUT the mi...

A very similar thought had crossed my mind - although I have a donor vehicle or to be more correct it is now in collection of bits! What I need is the 'coupler unit' between the electric motor and the gear box, or to find out where I am able to aquire one from. The only other example I have seen is ...

Electric 2CV

Hi A couple of weeks ago I asked for info on any electric 2CV. Steve Barnes wrote:- "That'll be my old 2CV then! I built it in 1999 using a LEMCO motor and 96V of lead acid batteries, which gave reasonable performance and 45 miles range. Unfortunately the car has rusted away, and the bits are i...

Hybrid Build - Thanks to Forum

Hi Just a short note to say thanks to all those on the Forum who gave me advice and guidance on my plan to build a Hybrid - Pembleton Brooklands. I went to see the maker (not that one!) in the wilds of Worcestershire today and asked many questions on the issues the forum raised. All can be covered a...

Chris(B) and Jeremy Sorry Chris - I was getting confused and realised as soon as I sent it that it was your van. I got my diesel generator second hand for £25, took all the bits off and ran the skeleton in the frame to make sure it worked. I intend to place this in the rear in an enclosed sound p...

Jeremy Just when I though I had some idea of what I was going to do!!!!!! Thanks for that - as I was wondering how the car would perform on just the 5kw generator alone. My homework this week will now have to be gone over again. The good news in this matter - is that I am not out for speed - but for...

qdos/Malcolm(b) Thanks for all this. You have given me some home work to do!!! I am still set on the 4 wheeled Pembleton (Brooklands) as this has a space behind the seat (one builder has put in Dicky seat - albeit for children). The generator package, like the one seen in Malcolm's van includes - fu...
