Is your A/C compressor the 12v kind? My conversion is in need of one.


It is, but this has been a popular item, and has already gone..

Due to the Brisbane Floods recently the donor chassis was destroyed and the electric car project put on hold for the time being. If anyone is interested in some 100Ah LiFePO4 Thundersky Batteries let me know as I have some that I wont be needing for some time.
