Welcome to the electric vehicle group. You asked if there were people interested in 'roll your own' electric vehicles out there and the answer is yes. We have a number of people interested in doing conversions of ICE vehicles to electric and two or three have already done so. We have occasional meetings and a sometimes newsletter that is sent around to those interested. If you would like to get on the e-mailing list for information and notice of upcoming meetings, just let me know' We are planning another meeting, focusing on conversions in early March. Date to be announced.
