Who am I?

My name is Jameson Toper and I am a computer science student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. My father, Rick Toper, has been a mechanic for the past 35 years and after working with him on projects throughout my childhood, I have absorbed many of his skills and traits. I have also spent years working on computers and various custom electronic projects, such as designing robots to teach children about robotics at the Connecticut Science Center or creating a 6’x2′ custom LED matrix sign built for a local magnet school.

Why am I making this Patreon?

Well there are elements to this build that are a little over the budget I can fund myself. There are items like faster chargers, larger batteries, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, heat, and maybe even a vinyl wrap, all of which would help make this car a more complete unit rather than just a moving object. With the help of the monthly funds, in addition to these items, it will also give me easier access to come home from school to work on the project since the cost of travel can get quite expensive if I come and go with some sort of frequency.
So that's why I am here to ask for your help in supporting this project and helping it become a more polished figure. Any amount will help bring the project closer to it's goal and completion.

What inspired this project?

My fathers side of the family has always adored cars, and as such I have found myself enthralled by both modern and classic cars. But as of late, my interests have pointed more towards the new wave electric vehicles on the road today. Cars like the Model S and Model 3 have had me drooling, but the prices are so far out of reach as a 19 year old college student. I was discussing the new features of the Model 3 to my girlfriend one night, and as always, I scoffed off the idea because there was no way I could afford it. But she knows me better than anyone else, so she turned to me and asked, “Well I know what you are good at, why not make your own?” I laughed and shrugged it off, as I have seen channels like Rich Rebuilds and all the complex systems involved in the Teslas.
But on my 40 minute ride home from her house, I began to think. When I arrived home, I looked up a few videos regarding the topic and realized the process of a conversion is much more realistic than I had first thought. So with that in mind, I began research and have ended up here today, embarking on this project.
This project truly combines all of my skills, passions, and traits, and with that, I feel extremely confident in my ability to follow through and get a working vehicle on the road.
