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/

Interior Vinyl trim
I have discarded all the cardboard that was originally used as stiffening and used 3mm coreflute - a kind of corrugated plastic sheet. I used the original cardboard as a basis for the shapes to cut out of the coreflute but I was surprised at how often I had to modify ill-fitting shapes.
I haven't fitted the trim yet - except for the pieces next to and just in front of the rear seat.
This isn't the only piece but it gives an indication of the almost-finished trim (no pinchweld yet).
