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:

More Restoration Stuff - Interior Fabric

Not much done this weekend to do with the car. We did start checking out places to get auto-upholstery and selecting possible colours and patterns for the seats and door liners.

I did purchase 10 of EV200 DC contactors on eBay late last week. I only want two but other guys on the AEVA forums have committed to taking the rest of them.
