How do you even convert a car to 12 volt?

By input/sense, you mean Kalim poking albee in his soft spots?

Replace regulator components, rewind the armature in the starter motor, windshield wiper motor, and sunroof motor, 12v bulbs, and redo the gauges in the dash.


isn't that what I said?

Ahh, so you really convert everything.

It was weird, in Nick's model A, some of the system was 12 volt, and the rest was still 6 volt. None of the lights were turning on, so I decided to put 6 volts directly to one of the bulbs and it instantly blew. I never really figured out what was going on with that car, before nick sold it like every other car he's touched.

Nick also had a similarly weird chevy blazer that had a combo 12 volt car system and 24 volt heavy truck/military electrical system.

Dunno, haven't talked to him sense. I think he's doing that "I'm off to college, time to forget everything and start fresh!" thing like what a lot of people do.

How to people leave the house without a wallet? Do you even triple tap?
