    Tesla8.JPG I'm in the final stage of rebuilding 681, we need a Battery. I have my quote from TM, but would like to find a good used replacement if possible. If you know someone or have info about a wrecked Roadster with a good ESS, forward me the info and help us get this Roadster back on the road.

    A respectable finder's fee will be provided at the completion of the sale.

    Thanks, Kevin

    Thanks for the recommendation GSP, Kit Rodden from Battery M.D. contacted me and said they do work on electric vehicals but Tesla will not cooporate with them so they have not repaired an ESS.

    That's not very nice, an ESS with the newer Panasonics would be a range improver. Maybe Tesla should pick up that early Google line, "don't be evil"? Interested in your experience repairing a roadster Kev, have you got a blog on your trials & tribulations online anywhere?

    sorry, no blog. The next step is to replace the battery and dive into any electical problems that may pop up. We're hoping for the best but, can only check so many components without the ESS.
