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: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

The Christmas Break
One of the Vogue's mechanical casualities of the drive to work was the hydraulic brake light switch. When I got home the brake lights were no longer working. The regen. system was turning on the brake lights but the Vogue's original system was not.
This is the culprit - the hydraulic brake light switch.
I did fit the polycarbonate boot partition - I'll get a picture soon. Not much to see as the partitiion is clear and it's kind of hard to see. I should have ordered it slightly tinted.
