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:

Trimming Headlining

Since my new windscreen seal and rear 1/4 light window seals have arrived it's time to finish trimming the headling.

I didn't have scissors that fitted very well into the places I needed to cut - so I bought these on eBay. They are Medical Dressing scissors.

A vice and big pair of multigrips and they became this:

I also carefully took the point off  the "pointy" bit so it was more difficult to scrape paint.

They were then used to do bits like this.

Less useful here but still better than straight ones.
