This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum:

The Dashpad

The Dashpad is the padded bit on top of the dashboard.
This is becoming a high cost-for-result item. I have had 2 quotes on restoring the dashpad - $800 and about $600 (including shipping back from another country).

I have found a couple of ideas on the web that make me think I might be able to do it myself but it will be time consuming and no guarantee of a good result.

This one seems the best way.
I actually emailed Daron checking how easy it was to get "Bed Liner" spray.
Turns out it has nothing to do with the bed you sleep in.

People with Utes (that's trucks in the USA) like to stop the truck "bed" getting scratched etc. so they either get a hard liner or apply a spray - hence bed liner spray!
