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:

Engine Bay Model in Sketchup Warehouse

For anyone who is interested in playing with Google Sketchup, I have uploaded the model of my engine bay layout into the Google 3D Warehouse. Just look for Engine Bay Layout.
If you haven't played with Sketchup yet, it's a free download from Google. If you aren't really into professional 3D packages and just want something to use as a visualisation tool I find it very useful. It has saved me a heap of time - and probably money.
