EV Components

Yesterday I received verbal confirmation from the seller as well as the creditor that the outstanding loan on the car was paid out. The RDPRM (Quebec Title Registry) has not yet received the official notice of clear title yet but it should get there within days. I went ahead and scheduled a vehicle inspection for Wednesday of next week. I also went over my list of EV components to be ordered except for the batteries, dc-to-dc converter, and battery pack charger. The final decision on the omitted parts will be made later. The motor (Netgain Warp9) was ordered 8 weeks ago and is expected to arrive shortly. The motor adaptor/coupler and mounts will be custom made. If any additional parts are required, I will post them later.

Here is a nice graphic I found which helps to better visualize the EV components:
