Today Nathan came over and we did some light work on the Silent E. We were going to replace the power steering with manual steering, but no junkyards were open, so we just took out the power steering rack.
We also emptied the batteries out of the rear box, in anticipation of cutting some access holes in the rear hatch floor. And we wired up the PFC-20 for 12V operation and started charging individual batteries.
The hiatus is over! Now we'll start working on the EV again. 2006-10-22: Pictures!
