WE at the Canberra Institute of Technology have purchased a GMC G-VAN from CERES in Melbourne. At present we are fitting it with some new batteries, but we have no manuals or any other information on it.
Does anyone out there know where we might be able to get some manuals for it?

(a G-Van is a GMC Vandura that has been converted by Conceptor industries in Canada. There was quite a few made in the early 1990s. They are similar to the Blade, sold as a glider and then fitted with an electric drive train.)

He knows some other people that bought and revived 3 out of 4 of them together.
I'm sure they can give you some assistance over email/web.
Bill is listed on the http://www.electricnevada.org/ site.

You're painting it black with a red diagonal stripe right?

I wish!!

I was thinking of naming the tech.s, sponsors and admin staff the "E-Team"!

We have to go with white becuase it's firstly the cheapest option and secondly is really great as a backgroud for sponsor's logo's.
