Converting a liquid-fueled vehicle to electric drive is nothing new, but, if you've never done it before, then everything can be fresh and totally overwhelming. For those of you interested in trying a conversion project, the fine folks at Electric Cars Are For Girls are here to help. The site is getting ready to put EV conversion classes online using the same materials and demonstrations that they use in local classes. The project is called EV University, and they are currently running a survey to find out what would be most useful to home mechanics. The classes will include written materials, videos, lectures with slides and a chance to interact with the instructors. Help them out by taking the survey. If you want to help them out more, they are also looking for people to teach the courses.
To get you inspired, here are some of our favorite homebrew conversions from the AutoblogGreen archives:
- Shade tree mechanics work on 1936 Chevy Sedan
- Saving money with a 1994 Saturn wagon
- Michigan teen's 1988 Mazda B2200 truck (pictured)
