We're blowing the dust off this BMW. Interior is in good shape.
Keeping the stock appearance inside and out is an important part of this project.
It will be a comfortable classic in-town and on the highway.

What's going in:

  • AC 34 motor with adapter to stock manual gearbox.
  • Curtis 1238 650 Amp controller
  • Five TESLA model S modules to be wired in series
  • Orion Battery Management System (BMS), with CAN and external SOC display.
  • 1500 Watt PTC electric heater

New paint is planned following the conversion.

Here's one of the TESLA Model S battery modules with own cell taps connector for testing.
