Hi All,

Ive had my Mk4 marcos for many years and finally getting round to starting the renovation of it. This will be a bit different to my normal builds as I am converting it to electric.

Ive already started a build thread at the link below on DIY electriccars and have setup Electric Classic Minis to showcase mine and other builds.

https://www.diyelectriccar.com/threads/mini-marcos-ev-conversion.201729/

I will be improving the chassis a bit and adding a bit of aero, as im a composites engineer i will be making some carbon replacements and also will be looking to make a full rollcage with mounting points for the battery box.

Best of luck with the build , I'll be following with interest .

Check out this link to Jeroen's site with some info on an Irish conversion in the late 60's.

Interesting project, I've thought about this myself. The electrical and engineering side is no major problem however me and electronics/computers don't get on very well. Keep the updates coming it'll be interesting to follow.

Something I'd love to try too...except I don't have the expertise, the time or the money!
