Rebirth Auto Kit Arrives Posted on 2009-12-31 by Michael My kit from RebirthAuto.com arrived today! Way to send 2009 out with a bang. Big Old Truck! The lift gate broke so it was parked out there for about an hour. It’s Christmas in December! There’s the motor, some padding, and on the right is the diamond plate with most of the components mounted on it. Here are some goodies! Extra fuses, fuse blocks, an extra contactor, and the inlet port. That’s a lot of copper! Here’s the business end of the motor. Compare to the original VW motor in the next shot. Here’s the gas engine a friend helped me remove from my bug. He has a buggy that can use some parts from this engine. Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries! They are a fancier-pants version of the normal lead-acid batteries in most cars. Here are my lame mock-ups next to the real batteries.
