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: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

One Finished Armrest
Three more to go.
It took about an hour to do this one. I avoided getting any glue on the foam underneath so it's only glued to the flat metal base of the top part. That way it can be easily recovered in the future. It took a lot of patient stretching of the material and 'V' cuts to get it to fit perfectly.
