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:

The Rotor is back!

I just picked up the rotor from Precision Balancing.

The motor rotor in the boot of the Super Snipe.
Before balancing the rotor balance was 7.43g (grams) out at 18 degrees and the other end 14.4g at 191 degrees.
After balancing it is now 0.550 at 328 degrees and 0.532g at 320 degrees.
It sounds a lot like it was statically balanced originally.
They also balanced the coupler after balancing the rotor - it'll need painting again (I'll probably stuff the balance!). You can just see the shaved part of the coupler on the top (red thing on end of rotor).
This will make a big didn't make any difference - now to get it all back together.
