Charging from EVSE at work

We just got J1772 charge stations at work, I was the second one to plug in. Dan beat me to it with his spitfire. [img_assist|nid=335|title=Lemon powered by Aerovironment EVSE|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=450|height=230] Got a new bumper too, well, not entirely new.

bumper

Hey Peter - I see you got the older 70's bumper. Just curious, was that a cosmetic choice or done to lower the weight? I've thought about rolling back to the old style bumper myself. Have heard it saves about 100 lbs. Cheers!

re: bumper

Both! Can't stand the tube bumpers, ugly and heavy. I weighed my rear one on the bathroom scale, it was 50lbs. The front one is probably heavier, it has more mounting hardware. Removing them offsets a significant portion of the added battery weight. I even had to cut the front coil springs by one coil to get the ride height down after removing the front bumper.
