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/

Mounting the Chargers
I had some brackets bent up a few weeks ago.
I use the four case screws to hold the back of the charger in but I needed some 1mm aluminium to do the front.
Well they are re-doing the offices downstairs at work - and look what was left behind one night. I'm sure it was scrap. Anodized and all!
There were enough straight pieces to get my 14 of 50mm by 18mm front pieces.
Which become these. (Need holes drilled.)
The front of the charger is held in by these which allow me to remove the middle chargers without taking out all the ones on top. Just undo the rear 4 screws and the front 2 then slide the offending charger out. I haven't drilled the front 2 holes for this first one yet. I might use root nuts...
