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:

Rear Wheels on, Front Wheels off

The rear wheels are finished and back on the car. (New tyres to come soon.)

I even brushed a coat of satin black under the wheel arches.

I'll need to paint under the front wheel arches before the front wheels go back on.


I did the wire brushing, sanding and de-rust coat on one wheel tonight.

Hopefully I'll prepare the other wheel tomorrow night.

The plan: Prime both wheels on Thursday night and two coats of black on one side Friday night, last two coats on the other side on Saturday. Let's see how we go...
