Here are a couple of posts for the person(s) out there thinking about
or just starting out in welding.

You don’t need to start out with a MIG to do excellent welding.

In fact, 95% of those just starting out will do much stronger welding
with a stick arc welder than a MIG. Cost 325.00 new for a Lincoln.

I have welded everything on my Tumber, so far, with a used stick AC
arc welder mostly set on 120 and 6011 1/8” welding rods.

An uncle of mine that owned a ranch welded everything that needed
welding with an old Montgomery Ward arc welder set on 125 and 6011
1/8” welding rods. He welded 1/16” to 2” thick steel without ever
changing the power setting or rod type. This uncle taught me to ARC
weld at age 12-years. Learning the basics about welder hook up, 6011
rods, and how to strike an arc took me an hour, or two. Everything
else associated with clamping/positioning up metal pieces and arc
welding methods, techniques, and tricks he called “finesse”. Some of
them that worked well, too dangerous and/or legal liability laden to
be included in today’s published welding books or other media.

WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT THE 6011 1/8” WELDING ROD?

The 6011 F3 1/8” rod is deep penetrating fast freezing rod.

Deep penetrating with a forceful arc above 6000 degrees F / 3,300
degrees C, because of the high cellulose coating and fast freezing
because the weld solidifies rapidly in all positions while producing
light slag.

Excellent for flat, horizontal, vertical-up, vertical down, overhead,
and open root welding.

Bar none, this rod is the best choice for welding on dirty, rusty,
painted, oily, and greasy metal in windy and low temperatures, down to
near zero, conditions. There is no upper limit on the thickness of
metal to be welded. The 6011 1/8” rod is really good for welding old
vehicle frames and scrap metal.

Strength: 60,000 PSI

AC ARC welder settings for 6011 1/8” rods (75-120 setting) with
120-125 setting used most of the time. Settings above 120-125 with the
6011 1/8” rod greatly increase weld porosity and lessen weld
integrity.

Correct arc length for 6011 1/8” rod is usually 1/8” from metal.

Many of the characteristics listed below that made the 1989, 1966, and Tumbler Batmobiles great are both worthy and instructive to those planning to build a Batman v Superman DOJ Batmobile.

Top 3 Batmobiles: The Best of the Batmobiles
Visual Iconic Pop Culture in Art and Media
James Romeo
January 25, 2016

“What was the best Batmobile to ever appear in visual media?
Everyone has their own likes and dislikes about movies and comics,
such is the nature of any media or art form. Warning: Opinions will
vary from individual to individual.

#3 – 2005 Tumbler (The Dark Knight Trilogy)
The core concept of the entire Nolan series of films was built on one
question: What if Batman was actually real? He would actually need a
car that actually could get the job done.
The Tumbler takes the concept and creatively elaborates the idea of
the Batmobile being an all-terrain vehicle. It smashes through
everything and uses its weight and momentum to go from place to place.
This is the most “realistic” interpretation of the Batmobile to ever
be shown on a movie screen.

#2 – 1966 Batmobile (Batman the Movie/Series)
Everything in the 1960s was about style, colorful and cool. It was a
colorful, lighthearted Batmobile for a lighthearted time in the
character’s history. It resurrected Batman from the black and white
serials. The television show borrowed elements from the 1950s comics
of Batman. The 1966 Batmobile also marked the first occasion audiences
saw the afterburner that propelled the Batmobile in live action,
something that was a part of the comics. This Batmobile was versatile
and useful with its endless array of functions and gadgets combined
with a very unique and bright sense of style. The word iconic it often
found in the company of its description.

#1 – 1989 Batmobile (Batman 1989)
Many believe this to be the best adaptation of the Batmobile in live
action. Michael Keaton’s version from Tim Burton’s film in 1989 is the
one that most people think of when they think of a dark, brooding, and
stylish version of the Batmobile. Enforcing a sense of seriousness,
style, and implied power is what makes this work so well. What you
have is something that is sleek looking and bold with its presence
each time you see the Batmobile appear on screen. It has thick armor,
machine guns, a jet turbine engine, sleek body, and much more, that
give it an intimidating and serious presence each time you see it. It
is the polar opposite interpretation of the 1966 Batmobile, which only
helped to reinforce the idea of Tim Burton’s film being a completely
new take on the dark knight at the time.”

Looked at fifty or so, top ten, top five, and top three ranking sites,
blogs, and postings, ranking the Batmobiles for variable combinations
that included some of the following qualities: screen presentation,
originality, beauty, iconic, gaudiness, design, technology, style,
realism, boldness, intimidation, seriousness, darkness, power,
practicality, and usefulness to Batman. Ninety percent ranked the 1989
as the number one best overall Batmobile, the 1966 as the number two
and most recognizable, and the Tumbler as the number three and most
realistic. Personally, I find something to like in all the Batmobile variations. vertigo

Hard to argue with that list. I do like the DOJ but it hasn't been used enough on screen. It was a highlight of the DOJ film imo but just not nearly enough screen time. Hope that changes in future movies, especially the Batman standalone movie.

I placed a copy of this post here for anyone planning to build a Bat
Vehicle that may find it useful.

A good example of the benefits of procedural order and modular finishing in Bat Vehicle building.
Pre-installation grinding, sanding, polishing, finishing, and painting assemblies like an axle before installation will save you many hours of work and avoid a lot of aggravation.

“A bit of advice, if you can try and paint and finish bits like
your chassis, etc. as you’re going along. It becomes a real pain
coming back removing bits and pieces and proper access to parts
becomes awkward.” paulwayne

I like the way great minds think the same.

Like you suggested, I plan to paint and finish build part groups as I
go along. That’s why I didn’t mount the axle to the chassis mounts
before stopping to build the rear panels with recessed propane gas
tanks.
As you suggested, I plan to paint the rear axle with POR-15 before I
physically suspend it on the four-link suspension.
The axle with welded on truss will take some time to paint to get
inside the truss. I expect I will need to rotate the axle assembly
around 360 degrees, a little at a time, to be able to reach everything
with the POR-15 coating. If I had mounted the axle before painting, it
would have made coating the axle a major ordeal.

I posted a copy of this post here because it might be of some benefit
to anyone planning, starting, or currently building a Bat Vehicle.
What I learned from welding my hemi-joint threaded tubing inserts.
Used standard tactical spaced welding techniques to equalize heated metal expansion and contraction forces.
In spite of rigorous application when the hemi-joint was screwed in it went in easily until it reached a point inside equal to where the threaded insert was welded to the tubing.
When I checked the concentricity (equal roundness) inside it was in round.
So why did the threaded hemi-joint bind.
Called the father of a friend if mine, a retired NASA metallurgist that specialized in extreme welding while working in the space program.
Here is his answer:
"Hemi-joints that thread into threaded tubing inserts will bind if the threads are cut to normal standard fit because when the insert is welded around the outside, the thermal forces from the welding create an inward pressure on the inside threads. It is also the reason that a thread cutting tap is used as standard procedure to true up the threads. The ones that don't bind have much less tightness in their thread fit to address the thermal welding forces."
So, I will be buying right and left hand taps. vertigo

I placed a copy of this post here for its potential use to anyone
planning to or actually building a Bat Vehicle.

Miller weld forum: Mig Dual-shield Fluxcore wire has replaced Stick
welding for many processes. So, why do many Mig welders still use
stick welding also?

Stick welding is still used by many Mig welders when the situation
calls for flatter and deeper penetration welds in new structural steel
and when welding rusty, dirty, oily, and painted metal, often in an
adverse environment.

In reality, the choice usually depends on the operator skills,
confidence, and the machine's power. Sure many people can make Mig
welding with gas shielded solid wire look good in flat position with a
few minutes of practice and a well set machine.

They have a much harder time when they are called on to weld on
anything but new, clean, and acetone degreased metal. It may look
good, but the truth is many people just don't have a complete grasp on
the concept and finer details on how to run and weld with Mig.

For one thing, you'll see them running a bead that is much too wide.
Sorry but a .030" wire can't create a good puddle that is half an inch
wide. They rarely get proper penetration because they put most of the
heat into the puddle instead of fresh metal; a disaster in the making.

Stick welding gets a lot of its good properties from the flux. Good
cleaning action which reduces the chances of bad weld quality if there
was any dirt, rust, oil, paint, etc. Penetration will generally be
better, mostly for the untrained.

So, what do professional welders use when they need the benefits of
stick welding? Dual-shield fluxcore is what is used in real
production. It requires a shielding gas. Usually pure Co2 or C25.
Dual-shield Fluxcore has replaced Stick for many processes. It has
good penetration, good weld properties, cleaning action from the flux,
and is capable of very fast deposition rates compared to stick and gas
shielded solid mig wire.

Keep your beads narrow and watch the digging action.

Remember Voltage isn't the heat (amp) control. The wire speed controls
the amperage. Voltage controls wetting action and burn back.”

Mounting tires with starter fluid.
Here is a method used by some off roaders and many others to mount tires.
This is not a method recommended by anyone due to the danger and liability issues associated with the method.
Most use the disclaimer: For Informational Purposes Only
Here is a YouTube video for mounting the 44" inch Super Swamper with starter fluid.

There are thousands of videos that show the starter fluid method to mount all kinds of tires on line.

"Was thinking this would make a great starter point for a bvs batmobile what do you think .http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/132257953721" paulwayne

It has definite possibilities.

I think the ideal donor vehicle for the DOJ Batmobile is one that requires the least amount of labor and modifications to conform the closest to the structural, performance, and other design characteristics. vertigo
