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/

Fuse and Contactor Boxes
I have already bought the boxes and have all the parts but I won't finalise them until I actually physically put some parts in the engine bay. The layout of the cable glands is quit critical as I don't have much room.
Anyway - this is what they will look like - clear covers too!
You can see this box on the left in the previous post with the engine bay sketch.
The real thing won't be nearly as colourful unfortunately.
