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:

Seat Foam Woes

I thought it wa going to be a simple matter to get the new foam rubber for the seats - not so.
A trip to Clark Rubber revealed that anything that would last longer than 10 years was a "special order". So we are waiting for the auto upholstery shop that we bought the fabric from to open on Jan 9th. The rear seat fabric will be ready to go by early next week. Meanwhile we are.hoping to get the dashpad in tomorrow. Pics tomorrow.
