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/

Headlining basically in
It has to come out again as we have a problem that the roof insulation is too thick to allow the lining to hang correctly without intervention. The trouble is you can't get at the way the lining hangs off the bows once you have installed the next bow. We also may have cut one back a little bit too far. Anyway - it pretty much fits and will look good once the sides are tensioned up.
