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:

Brake Light Switch changed and Brakes Bled

This morning, I changed the brake light switch for the one I bought from the UK on eBay (QH- XBLS8). Tammy (daughter) did the foot pumping while we bled the brakes. We flushed about 250ml of brake fluid through the system. Sorry no pics.

I have two three major things left to do before getting the engineer out for final inspection.
  1. Install and wire the inertia switch. The wiring is there so all I have to do is drill two holes and terminate the switch connector.
  2. Mount and test the heater controls. This really means soldering two connections and connecting up the heater flap cable - then two screws to mount the controls.
  3. Finish and install sunvisors (added 14 Jan 2013).
I also have to do a quick user manual, driving and charging.
Meanwhile house renovation is taking a fair bit of time.We're trying to get the bathroom painted before the end of this coming weekend. The heat (weather) may slow us down.
