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/

My Batteries are in Australia
I had to scurry around finding a customs broker.
I really should have done that before the packs left China.
The other issue is that the packs were shipped in a wooden crate without the correct procedure for fumigation so that has to be done here.
You live and learn. I should have known as this was an issue with the motor crate as well.
With any luck I may have them within the next few days.
