Hello my dudes!

July 26th is the one year anniversary for OpenSource EV Parts. At launch, I wasn’t sure how long it was going to last. Looking at it now though, I think and entire year is something to celebrate. I've created a video with a recap and a ton of announcements in it. Below is a summary of it. Posts about the new products will be created shortly.

Long story short is this has been an amazing, wonderful adventure over the last year and I am tremendously humbled by the response. It continues to be a side project for me, but I can't imagine not doing it. All the folks (well, almost all) that I've talked to in person, over the phone, via email and on here have been more lovely than I expected, and I can't wait to talk to more of you over the next year.

So, here is what is included:
