Things To Look Out For Good Electric Car Conversion Plans
If you are looking for electric car conversion plans on the internet, here are 5 things you should look out for.
Make sure the author of the book has converted a gasoline driven car to electric vehicle (EV).
Some of the EV manuals out there are “ghost written”. Meaning, a copy writer writes that book and sells it as a Private Label Right (PLP). Then anyone can buy the right, slap on his name as the author and try to sell it on the web.
How do you prove the authenticity of the EV conversion manual?
That’s easy…look for lots of before and after pictures of the electric car conversion process.
If the manual has a lot of pictures of the EV components, and there are pictures of the same components used in the EV engine bay, that would prove the authenticity of the author.
Videos are an alternative media on the internet. It is not new but videos do present information much better than an e-book.
Here’s a fact. It takes time, effort and money to make good videos.
If an electric car conversion guide comes with instructional videos, it shows the author is serious about his work and most probably is an authority in his field.
3) Comprehensive / Detail information.
A good EV manual should have detailed information about an EV conversion project. Actual parts cost break down or a component model and part number says a lot about the content of the guide.
Do a quick query on the search engine on the author’s name. Find out what other people are talking about the author.
If you can find lots of web sites talking about the work of the author, it is a good sign he is legit.
If you can’t find any references on the web, the said author may not even exist.
What does that tell you about the EV manual? Probably not very good. Don’t you think so?
Have a look at the electric car conversion guide main web page.
Can you feel the voice of the author?
Different people write in different ways. Some can be very technical, others a bit light and humorous.
What you want is something in between. Have a feel of the personality of the author from the material he wrote on his web site.
If it’s good, chances are, his e-book would have the same voice.
