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:

Front Passenger Seat Foam

I tried to order the foam the right size but they are all a bit on the big side.
Out with the electric carving knife again.

Seat foam re-cut, now for some glue on the base.

This was our poor lounge room today. Sorry family... I use the old foam and vinyl as a reference quite a lot. It will be good to pack it off to under the house (in big plastic bags - just in case we need to do this again) when the seats are finalised.
The foam almost done. I still have to place the 10mm foam over the 20mm to get the "plush" effect. The back of the seat isn't glued to the seat frame - I may not need to.

View from above showing the contour of the back part of the seat.
