Austin Allegro EV conversion 2: prepping

This fresh, new update is loaded with prepping, measuring and house hunting as I get closer to actually beginning my Austin Allegro electric car conversion project!

Even though I don’t yet have a place to start the conversion, this new video shows me rolling up my sleeves and getting ready to remove the engine by measuring and weighing the car:

So, the car weighs in at 880 kg (1940 lbs) which is light, but as you saw in the first video, the car was never built for hauling a lot of weight. And as you know, batteries are heavy!

But now that I have a house, the conversion is able to get underway, so stay tuned!
