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/

Helping Someone Move - Charger progress
This is a 2D of the final engine bay layout. The controller has moved to the left side of the car in order to better balance left to right weight. Note the new addition (with relative position) of a 12V sealed AGM battery that will kick start the whole shebang.
I spent the weekend sealing my sister-in-law's new garage and moving delicate stuff in cars as she is moving to a new dwelling. I did manage to steal an hour or so to slightly progress with wiring the chargers. I didn't take any photos but here is the Sketchup.
I used the spare "slot" in the second front charger tower for the terminal box that will provide power to the chargers. They are not all wired in parallel but more about that another post. The 'P' clamp is to secure the 4 charger power cables that will come in the side of the box.
Note the "Cutout for gland". It's all getting a bit tight.
