So I did another maintenance item on my older Leaf, that I already had done on my newer. The reduction gear ATF replacement. This time I decided to record the process, and make a quick DIY video that'll hopefully help someone looking to do the same.

So I created a step-by-step video for anyone looking for how to install a CAN-bridge on their ZE0 Nissan Leaf. Quite a boring video, but oh so helpful if you are on the fence about your capabilities to do a battery upgrade / LeafEnhancer install

Yesterday I mounted a 100W LED bar on the Leaf, and made a quick video on the installation process. Wish I'd done this sooner, such an awesome result!

So I think this takes the record for the most boring youtube video ever released. 52minutes of me trying to figure out some CAN-data reverse engineering. Please do not watch this, you will go insane from the boredom. Or do watch it, I'm not the police :)

So I made a video recently that ties into the prices on the salvage Nissan Leaf battery market, and how much I suck at managing a business. Anyone curios about what it truly costs to upgrade an EV should watch this.

Happy new year! I'm starting 2021 by installing a new EVSE into my workshop. I ran 6mm^2 cabling to the EVSE, but my main fuse is 3x25A, so I am limiting the EVSE to 3x16A (11kW). If I ever bump up my main fuses to 35A, I can simply set the EVSE to 22kW!

I just put out a video that goes into detail how Nissan protects their CAN communication from corruption/tampering. Very useful info for anyone doing Leaf reverse-engineering or any projects where Leaf parts are transplanted into new use!
