Let the Conversion.... Begin!

I just got back from A & P Specialties where Alan replaced the suspension on the 914 and did a steam cleaning in the engine compartment. Without the battery weight and having the unaligned suspension, the car rides unstable and high. No matter, I'm going to start preparing to drop the engine this weekend. I ran out and got another floor jack and a water-proof label-maker so I can mark all the wires and hoses as I take them out.

Today is the last day I will drive the 914 as a gasoline vehicle. With the busy-ness of life and the delivery delays from ElectroAutomotive, I don't know how long this will take. This will be an exciting process for sure. I feel grateful to have an army of supportive friends, OEVA members, and engineers at HP all backing me up.

Damn The Torpedos - Full Speed Ahead!
