    OK, reality!

    It looks like there is a fair amount of dirt clinging to that gear and that probably implies some oil or grease in the area. I would not put a lot of stock in any adhesive, epoxy,...

    One more thought: at the present time, with few available charging stations, I would not rely on an electric vehicle as my primary form of transportation. The electric may be OK for tooting around...

    The electric grid is vulnerable to a number of natural disasters. I have been a week or more without power after a hurricane. It may not be comfortable, but it is not the end of the world either. But...
