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:

Rear Charger Mounting Progress

I originally intended the wires to the mains inputs on the chargers to be magically terminated somewhere at the back of the packs but a clean, neat system didn't work out. So I made one more pack-stradling mount (slightly different to the charger ones) and put a termination box on it (black box in the middle).
This is the order that they will be installed on the battery packs in the boot.
I managed to get an hour or so last night to finish the last mounting frame and wire up three of the chargers.
Just a few more wires and they can be strapped in.
This was the original sketchup. I see that a charger has moved from the left to the right of the middle mounting frame. The direction I installed the battery straps tends to dictate these things. The buckles take up room and the straps would be difficult to change. They are easier to tighten in one particular direction.
Actually that is why the two-charger frames are on the outside packs - it's so I can put the buckles down the sides of the packs.
