and More and More Parts

As a result of my threatened visit to the EA seminars or EA's improvements in cash flow, I got a flood of parts which is nearly everything I need to complete the job.  Here is the 120V AC - 120V DC charger.  If I find that 120V charging takes too long, I may buy a 240V AC charger and wire them in parallel.

Here is the contactor:

Here is the DC-DC converter.  It takes a feed off the battery pack and provides 12V to the existing systems in the car such as lights, radio, etc.

Now all I'm waiting for are the wire crimper, terminal blocks, battery box weather stripping and hood pins.  I don't know when these will arrive, if ever so I'm going to buy them from other sources so I can continue the project.
