EV Conversion Warp 9 Motor Installation

71 VW Karmann Ghia EV Conversion
I installed the Netgain Warp 9 motor (WarP 9 EV Motor Electric Car Motor 72V DC Motor Netgain Motor New ECPC USA Stock from eBay) in the VW. It basically went as planned. I used a jack to slide it under the car and then removed the trunk and suspended the motor using racheting cargo straps. I had to remove part of the sheet metal in front of the trunk latch with an angle grinder to make it fit. The spindle shaft had to be cut down as well for the adapter to fit.

Two cargo straps were used to wiggle it into position. It wouldn't fit without cutting the rear apron.

Job well done. The tail shaft did not have to be removed.
