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 Seat fabric did not fit

Try as we might, we were unable to make the front seat upholstery fit properly. The problem is that we had allowed too much fabric on the top of the corners. This was because the fabric (upholstery) was designed around the old seat vinyl before I had applied the new foam to the seat.
So with much sighing, Laurel sat down and unpicked the top of the seated part from the front section.

Picture is the front section missing.

No wonder we couldn't make it fit. This is how much fabric was removed.
We pinned it back to the foam, Laurel tacked it - checked it again, then re-sewed it.
Now it's a perfect fit.
I can now get on with copying the pattern (reversing left-to-right) for the other front seat, then installing this seat's fabric.
