Project Vantom

This page is all about my second EV conversion project. The vehicle this time is a 2001 Nissan Serena (C23 base) 8-seater van.

I started this one because I was given a 72v Hyster forklift motor that wouldn’t fit into the Punto easily.

Hopefully this one will go a bit more smoothly as I learnt a bit about taking apart vehicle from the other project.

001 – Project Vantom Begins

In this video, I take a look around the donor vehicle, do a quick test of the electric motor and take out the coolant and air-intake system, all with a large amount of smoke.

002 – Alternator & Vacuum Pump

In this video, I remove the alternator & vacuum pump from the Serena. Also with that, out comes the oil, some cables and top of the input manifold.
