In my design, I am attaching the motor, motor mounts, front battery box, and transmission adaptor plate to one structure. The idea is to attach all of the components to this structure.
I have been contemplating other old car electric conversions; so I am trying to make universal parts. The structure pictured below will be made of waterjet cut 1/2" aluminum. I am attempting to design parts that require little to no additional machining once the are cut. I am not an engineer by trade, I am learning as I go!
The first picture shows the frame structure, with motor mounts attaching to the four holes on the side. The second picture shows the battery boxes attached to the top.
