christmas in october - [taxi pt 1]

A few days ago, I took delivery of the international EVTV Build Your Dream EV Contest loot.  You can read about the contest in my previous blog entry.  The EVTV Friday Show will be keeping tabs on me as I convert the Austin London Taxi to 100% electricity.  I will be sending frequent videos of my progress, challenges and all, to the show for scrutiny.  The beauty of this is that a nice portion of the global EV conversion community are loyal viewers and will be essentially be there to help problem solve along the way.  I plan to start the actual conversion on January 1, 2012, though there is much to do in preparation.  Here's a fun account of the contest awards ceremony from Jack Rickard, firsthand.  The first video is below:
