Back in the Saddle...

Well, as many of you have noticed, there haven't been many blog entries lately. The weather has been good, so I've been out hiking on the weekends. I also had to put my cat down on Friday due to kidney failure and I took the weekend to bury him and recover.

On the much brighter side, I received the Belktronix controller last Thursday via FedEx (pictures soon). I also took a road-trip up to EV-Supply in Bellevue to pick up the Warp9 motor, battery lugs/covers and Gast vacuum pump for the brake system. I'm also getting my engine hoist back tomorrow morning from a friend who borrowed it for his truck.

The weather is hot these days (close to 100 degrees F) so I'm moving slowly, but now that I have all the major parts, I can continue engineering work. There's still the open issue of which batteries to use, but that shouldn't hold me up from going forward.

Time to break inertia and get this project moving again.


Rest in Peace, Tigger

Sorry about your cat.

I know how badly it can hurt to have to make that decision for your cat. I hope you're feeling better about him now.

I put about 85 miles a day on my gen6 Civic and I'm watching your blog with great interest. Just wanted to say keep up the good work.
