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:

Boot (Trunk) Covers and signs.

The boot covers and warning signs installed. The inertia cut-out switch is now also installed and wired in, as is the mains inlet plug. The inertia switch is mounted on the Vogue bodywork just behind the fuel tank cover (the black cover on the left). It's a bit difficult to actually see the polycarbonate panel in front of the four battery packs - the warning sign just kind of hangs in the air.
A view from the passenger side. There is plenty of room for shopping bags. The usable area of the boot hasn't really changed. The elevated section where the batteries are now was never much use.
