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/

Since the room tended to be a bit dark we had a skylight/sun-tunnel installed and lashed out and got him a remote controlled aperture thingy for it. It's going to be a great room.
Someone on the AEVA forums pointed out that the kind of person who takes on an EV conversion (much less a restoration) is the kind of person who DIYs everything around the house - busy, busy....
Anyway, just a minor "on-hold". I'm still hoping to be on the road for good just after Christmas - so a lot will happen during the latter part of December - stay tuned!
