A few updates…

So it’s been a while since I posted. Unfortunately not as much done as I’d like but incremental progress.

I’ve swapped the BMS for Orion BMS 2, which supports separate modules for front and rear packs. Front pack has been tested and reports cell state over the CAN bus.

The dash layout has changed with BMS gauge and Curtis gauge visible. Garmin DriveAssist with navigation, backup camera, and assorted alerts such as following distance, lane deviation, etc. Also fitted a Rockford Fosgate marine head unit with Bluetooth.

Minor bits’n’pieces are getting the 12v system back together (with Tefzel wiring because it’s easier to find that an TXL), testing the motor controller and debating throttle options, rebuilding the brake system with EBC rotors and pads, and fitting up the charge port.

BTW, the Orion BMS 72 is available at mate’s rates if anyone wants it.
