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:

Door seals Installed

The weekend plus about an hour last night saw all the door seals installed. Not one of them shuts easily but I hope that all that is required is to re-adjust the hinges and latches. The spray painter had the doors perfectly lined up with the front and back wings which looked great, but the rubber stops them closing easily.

Another item that was fitted are the Vogue's "kewl" flesh tunnels (see two posts ago).
The screw on bit didn't fit but a little Sikaflex on the underside holds them in nicely and allows a tiny bit of flexibility should the posts end up on a slight angle.

Where did you get the door seals in the end?

From Rear Spares in Adelaide. They are exactly the same seals as I used on the Super Snipe 5 years ago. Standard number 231.008. They call them DS8011. They are not EPDM rubber or sponge as the Vogue (and SSnipe) was designed to have, but they work - if a tad tight - they won't leak.
