Just some video of me driving around my neighborhood in my home-made electric car.
I was testing out a suction-cup camera mount. I plan to do some more fun car footage in the future, including a "How to Build an Electric Car" instructional DVD.

    How much free time did you need for this? Was it a weekend job, or do you have more than weekends to work? Price? What did you need to start from, i.e. a car with no motor? Do you basically strip the car? I'M INTERESTED. :)

     I don't watch much TV. Instead, I try learning new things.

    Go to the "Build Your Own Electric Car" Instructable to read all about it.

    It was about a year of weekend work. I would be able to do it much faster now that I kinda know what I am doing.

     Now all you have to do is retrofit in some FX-R projectors and 35w HID ballasts!
