So, obviously they did not get that car and are awaiting the next auction where their buyers can find a 2015 or 2016 car that is not already stripped of some parts... To be continued.
OK, update on the battery swap/upgrade front:
The people that were interested in the packs had backed out, waiting for their battery to drop another bar (likely after summer) and in the mean time another person came forward who wants the upgrade done.
He will trailer his Leaf to me early March and we will do the upgrade then.
Today I heard that finally a new 2015 Leaf with very low mileage arrived at the Dismantler, so I will go there Monday to pick up the battery and remove the modules
in preparation of the swap next month.
Also, I finally got my truck to run well with 2 Leaf packs. Range is probably close to 100 miles and it is a blast to drive it.
My only "problem" is now that I have at least 3 working EVs so I need to sell 1 or 2 of my Leafs if I want to keep the truck...
