All ready for your viewing pleasure:-)

The TeZon is highlighted in this video at around minute 10. Seems like people are really enjoying the project and are starting to understand what it will be when it’s finished.

Anything left over will go towards the project:-)http://ecarexpo.se/AAAlso, check out the latest issue of BilSport (yeah this is a Swedish magazine for all those back home in Canada).

Tesla stocks up 20%. They must have heard you were ready for the show!

👍Bra jobbat!

Ready for Show!

Finally, this feels wicked!!! This was a hard weekend for me and the family, (thank you family!!) because I worked very late every day just to get this done, but dam, I’m really stoked from the result.
This was my first change to experience the TeZon the way it will be............by this I mean I got to try all the seats in the car and see what its like to get in and out of the car and if all my measurements actually worked out:-)
At 2 am this Monday morning i finished my big weekend job, first I welded up the front dash area, then fixed the back wall to the floor. Then welded up the B Pillars (yeah this was fun actually) and only then I was able to start putting in the whole interior back in.
I put in more of the interior then it has been since i actually got the car, and even with the Amazon on, I was able to actually put in most of it including the kick panels (i think thats their name) on all the doors. Insides of the B pillars I had to leave off as I have to modify them to fit .....later. Then I finally added the old doors, cool! Last I fitted the front fenders on mostly in the correct location........of course i have to work on them a lot to fit them / stretch them properly, but for this show they are good to give people an idea of what the car will look like.
One other thing, we actually started to work on is having Peter Hammarberg Sr. Come and with Lars Erik they started to do some of the ground body/paint work on the roof. Great to have to super experienced local guys come and help out as well......Thanks much!
The only thing I ran out of time on is to put the battery pack back in. So, on Wednesday after i get home from work I will get help and put the battery pack back in..........
Yahooooo then it will be time for a quick first drive on to the trailer and off to Stockholm E Car Expo at the friends arena.

Grønvolds has done it again!Thanks guys for your unreal support!! I truly can afford to do this project without all the people and companies that have stepped up to support this project!
Last week we went to visit Tom, John and all the guys at Grønvolds and they donated the full European charging system to the TeZon:-)
Of course, when you get new goodies it’s one of the first things I have done:-))))
It’s actually pretty straight forward but you can see why one must change out the Junction box to make this swap.
You can see the single phase North American (2 large orange cables) system beside the 3 phase (4 medium size orange cables.) in the European junction box.
Lots of working going on finishing all the details, many posts will be coming your way soon!!Image attachmentImage attachment

Welcome CTEKThe day of the marriage I had a very nice visit with one of the exciting local yet International companies that are involved in all charging systems for your car.
Ctek, is a company that has been in the regular 12volt car battery charging for over 30 years and they began in Vikmanshyttan, a small village in Dalarna Sweden, less that 200km from the TeZon. Last year they moved into the full electric car charging systems so this will be a perfect fit for us to start to cooperate together.https://www.ctek.com
