Then you could part out the rest of the Leaf, body panels, glass, Clarion radio ($$$).. you may end up making a profit plus getting all the rebates and credits.
Dibs on the battery, but I will loan you a module for full capacity testing.
No, you could likely use it for FWD as the half shafts could be modified. As I mentioned, the traction drive system without the battery is affordable even based on dealer list prices, far less then comparable AC conversion parts. There is no point in buying a full LEAF it would be pointless to take apart unless totaled.
What do you mean exactly by a "module for full capacity testing"?
