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: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

I have added labels to make finding things a bit easier in the future.
I bought enough of this plastic sheeting to try as a door liner. It's pretty light which is good but it may be too light to mount the front speakers in.
It's 3 mm thick. Should be a breeze to put holes etc. in but is it strong enough?
Now to track down some kind of thin padding and spray adhesive.
I can't actually do it until we have the fabric but I can cut it to shape using the old door lining as a template.
More retrospective blogging. From eBay again!
This emergency stop switch will mount in the dash where the choke used to be. The choke is the far left-hand knob on the dash in the previous post about the dashpad.
The forward-neutral-reverse switch will mount where the generator (yes, not alternator) light used to be.
100 Amp 700 VDC fuses. I bought 9 of them on eBay (again!) about a month ago. I only need three of them but AEVA forum people have committed to take a few.
They are 110 mm long.
