A Visit to EA

My job takes me to Santa Clara, California on a regular basis, so I have the luxury of being able to set up appointments to go up to Bonny Doon and visit Shari and Mike at Electro Automotive, and pick up a few more parts that were not included in my shipments. I did so this week and got what I think are about the last parts I need:


Left-to-right, top-to-bottom they are: the charger mount, the charger tray, the 8-in-1 wiring harness, one of 3 fans, 3 fan boxes, the last 2 DMOC controller feet, and the relay mount.

This will go a long way to helping me get this beast done this month. Mike and Shari were friendly as usual, but I did not stay and talk too long, since all of us are plenty busy. But it's a win-win to do this, since they save the postage, and I get the parts sooner.

Can you give me help me find/directions to EA? I too need to get some more parts and they have been less than responsive.

I'd rather them tell you - it is their house, after all... have you emailed, faxed, *and* phoned repeatedly? Once you get through via phone, I would suggest setting a specific date where you can come get some parts, because they may or may not have them in-stock.

Hi Ross, you are lucky to live so close to EA. If you get a chance to see them again, please say "hi" for me. I've never had the chance (especially so far away in Portland) to chat with them. Good luck on your project. You'll have the advantage of working with a full set of parts.
Cheers, Tim

I'll say "hi" to them for you next time I'm out - I don't live in CA, I live in CO and travel there 1-2 times a month.

I think the only part I have that you don't is the shunt, and you fixed that...
