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/

Speedo internal wiring
The two lines of pins are for the two 16 x 2 line white-on-blue LCD displays. The connector hanging out the front is for my main display. The red heat-shrunk wires will have a four pin connector on them that connects to the trip reset button and up/down buttons (contrast/menu selections). The black wire with the RJ45 connector (bottom of picture) is so I can re-program the Flash without having to remove the speedo from the car or remove any covers. It will be accessible from underneath the dash once it is installed.
I'll tidy the wires up and secure them when the displays are in and the layout is locked down. I have yet to connect wires to the DB15 connector that will be secured to the rear of the speedo housing.
Closeup. Thanks to Theo for the fiddly soldering on the two fine-pitch connectors.
Next job is to wire the DB15 then the stressful task of gluing the main display to the front panel (silicone), without getting any bleeding out to the front.
