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/

I haven't used spring washers because I need to remove it and drill a hole for the bonnet release - probably just above the pedal. I LOVE nutserts! I squirted Fish Oil through the lower hole after I drilled it - plenty enough to pool at the bottom of the panels to stop the drilling swath causing rust.
