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 Seat back

Here is a first look at the seat design that we have chosen. Unfortunately the light was not very good and I didn't capture the real blue colour but it shows the idea. The vinyl seat back in my previous post has the vulcanised section replaced by the silver with horizontal piecing to kind of emulate the older seat. The sewing machine decided it didn't want to top stitch on the left hand side (yesterday), so it went in today for a quick check-up. It got dropped off this morning and picked up this afternoon so more should happen tomorrow.
I concentrated on fitting the 100 or so pop riveted trim clips today. I'll put up pics when it's finished.
