Day 15 – Painting

Finally painted the engine compartment today – looks pretty good! Matte black all over. Ian also sketched up some measurements of the transmission mounting holes for a future mounting plate we will have to build.

Friday we need to remachine the spline adapter to shorten it a bit, and do some material sourcing for a large plate of aluminum to use as the mounting plate. We talked to one of our professors and she can heat treat the spline adapter when it’s done. Hopefully we’ll have the motor all mounted securely by christmas break. Then its all about the electrical and getting battery sponsors!
