UPDATE: July 10, 2007

Front battery pack installed. (But not hooked up yet.)

Rear battery pack installed. (But not hooked up.)

Car sitting on computer scales.

This was the weight of the original car, prior to modification.

This is the weight AFTER modification, with batteries and equipment in place.
We've gained about 684 lbs ... about the weight of four passengers. (From here on I'll limit the car to a driver and one passenger.)

Next job is to remove all four suspension struts, springs and shock absorbers. I will take them to the Pohl Spring Works, in Spokane, and have them wind the appropriate springs to bring the car back to it's original (lowered) height.
