January 26 2007

The V-Dub is sitting in the workshop area of the barn, waiting for the start of operations. (Kinda reminds me of a patient, dressed in hospital garb, waiting for the surgeon to begin the operation.)

First order of business is to remove the two front wheels and take them to Les Schwab Tires, in Pullman, to get a slow leak fixed. Both front tires gradually leak down over a month or so. I've taken them to Goodyear (In CA, where I bought the tires) twice to have them fixed, but to no avail. I suspect the wheels have a small defect in the material that allows the air loss. I'll probably put inner tubes in both wheels ... and that will solve the problem.

Follow along

Follow along, over the next few months, and watch a gas powered 1986 VW Cabriolet be converted to a 100% electric vehicle. The goal is to have the project completed by June 1, 2007.

Project starts Feb. 1, 2007 (Parts have been ordered)
