Today I received the cable glands from Rebbl. Also still ordered 2 fuses and fuse holders with them for the charger and DC-DC converter.
Only a small mistake again, I asked for black cable glands but I received gray for the little ones. No idea how this happened since the bigger ones are black and they were both in the same package. So I'll have to wait and see again if I can trade these for black ones.
Also started with preparations for the controller enclosure. On the front I shortened it a bit since it was taller than the side parts. Drilled holes to attach everything. Made some cables that will connect to the mesh shield in the orange cables for earthing. Also fitted the cable glands. So this is what it will look like, just have to imagine the orange cables. And there will also be RFI filters on those cables. Then it should be all complete.
Will just still spray the enclosure black, should look at least a bit better then.
Also still have some good news. If all goes well LMC Ltd., where I ordered the motor, should have everything ready for shipping by monday. Might actually get the motor then next week.
The CALB CA60 batteries were also finally ordered, delivery time of approximately 7 weeks now. After that time I should have everything here (if I didn't forget anything) and then I just need to build everything up.
