VW Bug electric conversion – ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
Remember the Volkswagen Bug? I mean the original one not the recent remake. The VW Bug was very easy to work on and featured a very small gasoline engine that if you could keep it running used less fuel that most of the gas guzzlers of the day. I still see some of these cars on the roads today but after watching this video I am going to give each of them a closer look.
For less that $ 20,000 this electric car conversion specialist will completely restore and convert a VW Bug into an all electric Green machine. The video takes you through the entire process from start to finish providing important component information such as the all important electric motor.
Add a paint job that takes the original body down to the bare metal and you have practically a new electric car.
Enjoy the experience.
