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/

All Windows Installed - permanently
Monday afternoon I selected the two best "Vogue" badges (I have a few so it took a while to clean them all up to find the best two) and mounted those. I also installed the rear Stainless Steel trim (rear wings) that goes midway up the car.
I only have the front two trim pieces and the two thin (stressful) pieces that follow the line of the rear fins left to put on (in the way of trim).
Here's a pic. Not a great image due to the fluorescent lighting and phone camera. You can see the place for one of the last missing trim strips yet to go on the front wings.
