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:

UK Bailey channel no good

The Bailey channel from the UK is 14mm - no good.
I have sent the windscreen seal back and expect a replacement in about a week.
That means no windscreen by the end of February. Oh well - lots to do on other bits.
I've tracked down a flexible bailey channel replacement for the Mk1 Ford Cortina that might fit.
Curiously, Clark Rubber stock it so I might get 50mm to try.
More soon.
