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:

Parcel Shelf disassembled

I found the parcel shelf and dragged it out from under the house. It is in worse condition than I remembered.

I don't think it deteriorated too much while stored as it was wrapped securely in polythene sheet. Xena thought it smelled odd though.

I removed the vinyl on the shelf section then detached the front - probably the only part that I'll keep.

 The red vinyl was quite loose on the front and the reason was the completely deteriorated foam underneath.
Scrape, scrape - off it comes.

Now to decide whether to make a new cardboard section or do something different.
