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:

Driver Seat Fixed

As per a previous post, following the fourth drive Laurel didn't like the way the upholstery was behaving on the driver's seat - so out it came. I pull all the clips off, removed the back upholstery and foam and revealed the problem. We deliberately did not glue the seat velour down to the raised parts of the seat - the grey bits shown. The issue arises when you get in or out of the car you tend to rotate in the seat which pulls the velour slightly.

Now it's glued thoroughly - and the seat is back in the car.
