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:

Accelerator Mounting Idea

I asked around for ideas at work this week and came away at the end of the week with one of our "Nutsert" tools (on loan only).
The plan is to drill two holes in the firewall where I can't get at the other side and use these blind-insertable nuts. I played around with an M4 version and it's pretty solid once it's in.
Before insertion.

"Other" side.

Front (insert) side.

I will have to figure out a way to get a slight angle on them as the pedal mount wants to be angled down a bit.
