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:

Windscreen attempt #2

Today's attempt to put the Windscreen in was almost successful except that we couldn't get the top part over the bodywork lip. I pestered away at it for an hour before I resigned to the fact that is wasn't really in. We slightly tore the rubber at the join too. We have removed the windscreen, repaired the rubber, and will try again tomorrow. Laurel and I think that we didn't get the bottom in correctly so hopefully we have learnt something from today's attempt.
