I have taken most of the different web pages I made with time (those where to share info) and have put them into a single site.

The purpose was to have navigation through them.

As most of the stuff is images, it will require a quick net link. I also expect that free site to be limited through transfer rate per day (40 mb)

For me, the new stuff is in the lower trailer section:
A new "InsightPack" sticker, wheel cover and spare pictures

and in the Suspension section:
Larger images than the one composite I shared in the Hybrid Yahoo group

The link is:

P.S. I have not tested/reviewed everything yet

Great site, looked at all the pics. With the pictures I might even try the rear suspension mod. I'll just have to figure out what to make the spacer out of. Have fun, RIck

Insight site

Yves,

very cool! The trailer turned out quite well! I can't quite picture where the plastic Rubbermaid strap goes to help hold the rubber spacer in place. I definitely need to do the suspension mod - bottom out all the time - nowhere near the weight limit.

I have the same problem with my ground cables, will have to change them soon. Although this was posted elsewhere, I will mention it again here. This stuff works better than anything I've ever tried:

Pacific corrosion sometimes has a better price.

Thanks Yves. The photos of the suspension mod are very helpful. I really like the trailer. The aerodynamic shape looks very appropriate.

What tools did you use to create the site? Nicely done!

Great trailers!

How hard is it to remove the rear bumper cover?

I am thinking about putting some solar fans at the bumper out-vent ports, but I haven't figured out the bumper cover removal...

Thanks all for the comments. I am really proud of the trailer.

Rick: If you need any help, contact me, I'll do all I can. I bought the material at a home hardware store. It was a 1inch per 6inch plank of a few feet long. To build exteriour decks.

Jim: When the OEM rubber spacer is set at it's new location, it is lower on the stub. The stub being conical, the spacer is a little loose. One could just leave it like that because it is not too bad. But I wanted things to be right.
The strip goes between the stub and the rubber spacer. It can not be straith because of the conical stub. It needs to be about 1 foot long and 1 inch wide (actually, same width as the rubber) and it is an arc. The middle of the arc is about 6 inch high.
Basically, I used a strong paper to create a template on the stub and then cut the plastic out of the plastic box (the plastic needs to be able to bend in a 3 inch "conical cylinder". It is why I used a rubbermaid box.
It did hold between the stub and rubber by itself (du to conical shape probably).
Also thanks for pointing out the corrosion x stuff. I did not find it near so I used white litium grease. It probably will not last as long. I'll check every 6 months.

b1shmu63: I used Frontpage

Figgy: It is pretty easy. Under the car, there are 6 clips that will need to be pulled out (flat screwdriver for the ones in the middle of the car and Phillips for the ones on the outside (wheel wells). For the bumper
3 bolts per side in the rear wheel spat. For the lights, one bolt per side into the car. You need to bend down the carpet behind the lights so you also need to remove the center plastic cover in the hatch area. Just pull it up. Two bolts on the outside (you can see the palstic covers in the rim of the lights. Once the lights are removed, it will show two more bolts per side on top of the bumper cover. So, the lights have 3 bolts, the bumper has 6 clips and 10 bolts

Nice site. I should probably try to put one of those together one of these days.

Thanks for the tip about Frontpage. I'm really new to this and it's taking a while to learn. :)

As a friend pointed out (thanks Christian), I forgot to put the "Regen/Brake' button mod on my site.

I also added an "Internal organs" schematics of the battery pack in the Info section

Me again and again,

I added a simplistic page for the metal pedal covers I have. At:
http://www.md92raid.100freemb.com/pages/pedalcovers.htm

An image is worth a 1000 words, or is it.

ADDITION:
If anyone knows of a free web place I could have that does not place advertisement, please tell me where.
Like I have now with 100 free Mb of space and 600 Mb of transfert rate,
all free.

Wow, much faster without the annoying pop-up ads. One of these days I'll create a spot on my site with my mod info on it.

The site is great Yves. :)

Thank you very much for the comment.

I think that they are presently turnning their ads to text instead of pop-up since most browsers are not allowing them. I hate to see my page starting below the third of the page.
