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:

Bonnet Latch Fitted

The bonnet now has the main latch and release fitted. Up until now I have only had the secondary or safety latch which has been making it easier to open and close the bonnet. If I'm planning on going faster then 16km/h (see first drive) I'll need it closed properly. I reconditioned it over a year ago. All went well - it was quite easy to align the pin with the latch
I have updated the to-do list post again.  Refresh your browser (Windows F5) if you have already visted that post.
 The release and spring have been added to actual latch side.

I did, I did! It's just not slathered everywhere.
