Gavin Shoebridge New Zealand Electric Car Conversion Manual

Many people may not have heard of Gavin Shoebridge of New Zealand unless they are Do It Yourself (DIY) electric car enthusiasts. In the EV conversion field, Gavin is known as The EV Guy.

Many people were very impressed by his work of converting an old Mitsubishi Tredia into a pure plug-in electric vehicle (EV). Gavin became a well know EV celebrity when he posted his electric car conversion project videos on YouTube.

Not too long ago, Gavin wrote a book on DIY electric car conversion, the Electric Conversion Made Easy guide. The book is available from www.evsecrets.com and is meant for anyone interested to convert their conventional car to run on pure electricity.

Is Gavin Shoebridge’s electric car conversion guide any good?

If you were to visit his web site, Gavin promised to teach anyone to start an EV project even he has completely no automotive skill or experience. This has been proven true because when Gavin converted his Tredia, he has no idea what he was doing. But through the process of trial and error, he managed to roll out his EV from his garage after almost 1 year working on it.

It took Gavin that long to complete his electric car project because most of the modification done didn’t work very well and had to be redone. His Electric Conversion Made Easy guide basically listed down what worked for him.

From his guide book, Gavin covers every components of an electric car such as electric motor, controller, deep cycle batteries, potential box, circuit breaker, vacuum pump, shunt etc. In his e-book, he also wrote about the rules and regulation of EV conversion and also tax rebates and deduction for electric cars.
If you are still not sure, don’t worry. Gavin has included his personal guarantee on his electric car conversion guide. If for whatever reason you do not see any value from his manual, you can ask for a full refund within 60 days from your purchase date. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

If you are concern about high gasoline prices and you want to find a way to reduce your monthly gasoline budget, why not consider using a plug-in electric car. If you are willing to invest the time and money, Gavin will help you with the instructions.

    I’m primarily interested in converting a gas-powered car to electric, and encountered a site that spoke of conversions costing as little as $500. I want to hear more! I drive about 110 miles once or twice a week, and the last 3 miles of that gain about 1,000′ in altitude. Additionally, Nov.-Mar. it might be -20 degrees, or several inches of snow. I’m not game for walking that because of dead battries, especially at 74 years old.

    If possible, I would like to know the cost per unit of the different elements used for the conversion. I am considering the following:
    1. Electric motor (either AC or DC).
    2. Controller.
    3. Set of Batteries for 144 volts.
    4. Coupler to couple the electric motor to the transmission.
    5. Cables.
    6. Set of capacitors.
    7. I have been thinking in installing an alternator driven by the electric motor in order to charge the batteries while the car is moving. What do you think of this?
    8. Labour.

    Please let me know how much would each one of the above elements could cost and if I am missing some of them.

    What HP would you recommend if I were to use a set of 144 volts for the batteries?
