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:

New Charge Timer

My cheap Chinese 16A charge timer died again - this time not fixable. The relay contacts appear to be fried.

I built the hardware for this one a couple of years ago using the timer and CB from the decommissioned air conditioning system at work (had to raid the dumpster).
So all wired now and working nicely. I have yet to mount it permanently.
This time I can replace the contactor etc. If they fail.
