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

With sore throat and head cold symptoms I braved the cold garage yesterday and cut up the aluminium for the rear charger mounts that I envisioned back in this post.
I started with three 1 metre long pieces of 20mm x 12mm x 1.6mm aluminium angle.
With suitable audience, the pieces are ready for assembly.
I built one first to check I hadn't made any weird mistakes. Here it is upside-down with 1.6mm neoprene rubber glued to the load- bearing surfaces.
Then into position with it. It is a great fit over the pack and is quite difficult to slide even without the strap. The strap will thread through easily, over the side section, between the chargers and the pack. A bit of a pain to get on though so I haven't done it until they are all ready.
Now to make another two of them.
