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 Tailshaft returns
I picked it up yesterday afternoon but there was no great hurry to re-fit it as Jeff from Precision Balancing indicated that there was no significant change (I also cooked dinner last night amongst other things so time ran short). We may have come up with a way to do an on-site balance of the whole drive train while the car is on stands. I'll post when I have more info.
