Placed a copy of this post here for anyone planning to and/or actually building a Bat Vehicle.
DOJ/Justice League Donor tear down currently rocking along on schedule with my projection report goals for April-2018.
Could go a lot faster with a cutting torch but I am taking my time and using a reciprocating saw with Diablo 24 TPI blades. Using this method has allowed me to preserve wiring, tubing, systems, etc. intact.

The most dangerous risk to stripping down the donor is the gas tank.
Even after draining the 42 gallon capacity gas tank of it's remaining 25-gallons there was approximately a gallon of gas and copious amounts of gasoline/air vapor.
When I tried to remove the straps that secured the gas tank to the frame I found both securing bolts rusted solid. First thought, use the reciprocating saw to cut the straps.
Second thought, the reciprocating saw's motor produces sparks at the brushes. First thought unrestrained equals gas/air vapor explosion and bath in liquid fire. DON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES WITH YOUR LIFE.
I purged my gas tank with CO2 but decided to fill the tank with water and cover the exterior of the tank with wet blankets.

Spending a collective average of one hour per day on both my Tumbler and DOJ/Justice League Bat Vehicles.
Given my current production I believe I may soon have a rolling chassis for both Bat Vehicles. (Depends on how someone describes what makes up a rolling chassis.) vertigo

Tried some of these Diablo carbide tipped hole saws. Bar none very best I have ever used.
Diablo introduces the first carbide-tipped hole saws on the market to cut both wood and metal (wood, nail-embedded wood, plastic, aluminum, metal, cast iron, stainless steel and metal). Delivering 50 times longer cutting life than bi-metal, these new carbide-tipped hole saws offer faster cutting performance and increased productivity.
60 mm (2-3/8 in.) cutting depth for 40% deeper holes in 1 pass and increased productivity
SnapLock Plus mandrel system includes: mandrel, pilot bit, 5/8 in. threaded adaptor (fits diameters 1-1/4 in. to 6 in.) and 1/2 in. threaded adaptor (fits diameters 9/16 in. to 3-1/16 in.)
1-size fits all mandrel fits all Diablo hole saws, from 5/8 in. to 6 in. Dia
Tool-free plug ejection for fast material removal
50x longer cutting life
