Boring coupler shaft holes1964 viewsThis time we wanted to be SURE our boring bar wouldn't flex, so we built a much stronger one.
We also are using much better cutting tips.

2nd motor 2029 viewsThen we quickly lowered the 2nd motor down into the coupler, and once again had to do some pounding.
Another bad sign.

Charge Port Door switch5191 viewsThis shows how I mounted a switch on each of the charge port doors. (used to be gas tank doors!)
This switch will tell the Z2K controller if either of the charge port doors is open, and if so, it won't let the truck "start".
Really helpful to prevent driving off with the cord still plugged in.
