This year there was a marked improvement of the build quality of the cars that were brought to EVCCON, with most cars looking like they had been professionally converted. Next year when my Fiero is completed, I am sure the bar will be even higher, so I really have my work cut out for me. 

Last year I met several converters from Ohio, so it was good seeing them again this year and meeting up with some folks who did not attend last year. I think it is important for converters to build a good support network for each other, as many times a fresh set of eyes on a problem are really needed to come up with a good solution.


Arrived at EVCCON on Wednesday and visited with everyone at the garage.

The John Deere 110 project is nearing completion, so hopefully this will allow me to kick the Fiero rebuild into high gear. Hoping to sell the John Deere to put in the LiFePo4 battery fund for the Fiero but then again, I may just keep it to mow the grass. They don't make garden tractors like this anymore, as they are now basically just stamped sheet metal with a lot of plastic.

It's time to get the lead out of the Fiero. With the New CALB CA cells, I am hoping to find a good set of used cells up for sale for a good price when another builder is upgrading.

Just a little more packing and then off to EVCCON. Next year the Fiero will be rebuilt with new batteries, and will be at the show.

 See everyone at EVCCON this evening!
