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 Wiring

I'm pretty much ready to finalise the Engine Bay control wiring so I thought a bit of planning would be good. I have only fleetingly thought about this in the past but now I have allocated existing and new wires.
here is take #1. I have left the detail of the control wiring to the Motor Controller out for now. The wiring route is indicated though.
Brown wires are existing high-current wiring. Green wires are existing instrument wiring. Blue and Red wires are new.
The purple cable is a shileded wire (plus one conductor) for the battery pack current sensor.

The diagram shows the Engine Bay of the Vogue with the front of the car at the bottom. Where the wires go from side to side across the car is the dashboard side of the firewall. For instance the Start/Run relay is in the cabin behind the dash. Click on the image for full size.

LATER EDIT: I also have not shown any high voltage wiring nor some connections to the controller. For instance accelerator, motor shaft encoder, motor temperature monitoring and BMS monitor wiring.
