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:

Dashboard Mounts

Try as I might I could not figure out which way the 'L' brackets at the bottom of the dashboard went on. I certainly did not take enough pictures when dis-assembling the dash. Fortunately I have a complete, albeit rather sad but intact, spare under the house. So I crawled under the house last night (at 8 degrees C) and took this picture. Other than that, the only work on the car last night was to glue the vinyl bottom into the glovebox and secure the clips that will hold it in place. Oh - I also soldered a bullet connector to a wire so I can intercept the reversing lights wire before installing the glovebox.
I had a bit of homework to do so nothing more on the car last night.

The spare dash with mounting brackets circled. Note the spare diff/axle casing and diff underneath. I wondered where those aluminium stabilisers (spelt wrong on sticker) got to...

We were discussing a few nights back how, if we ever moved house, I couldn't survive on a concrete block - no under the house storage.
