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:

Passenger seat finished, Driver seat halfway

It's been all upholstery this week. I have done a small amout of trimming on the actual car but mostly it's been seats.
This is the finished front passenger seat. It sits in our lounge room until the windscreen is in the car in a day or so. Of course the windscreen has to wait until the drivers seat is finished so that laurel can breathe a sign of relief.
The current state of the drivers seat. We didn't make the same mistake twice and we waited until the seat was foamed up before pinning the fabric correctly using the seat as the final pattern.
Since this picture was taken, the seat base fabric has been finished (but not clipped in yet) and the seat back foam has had the extra bits added and is ready to upholster.
