If anyone doubts that any vehicle can be built from other vehicle this 4-door 1980 Corvette from NBS Auto Showroom in Milpitas, CA is a good indicator.

All one needs is an idea and clarity of vision to put an artistic dream on the way to being reality. vertigo

Vertigo,

Couldn't agree with you more! Just look at my 650... for me I would have never thought you could graph the back 1/2 of an excursion onto the front 1/2 of a Ford commercial truck and have all the body lines line up so nicely like it was meant to be.

Received this today.
Bought one of these on Amazon on 11-3-2018.
About the product
Collector’s item! Detachable Ferrari 150th Italia racing wheel replica for the Thrustmaster T300RS (PS3 & PS4); T500RS (PS3, PS4, Xbox One & PC); and TX Wheel (Xbox One & PC), all sold separately
A precise, robust and realistic racing wheel
Full-size replica of the Formula 1 Ferrari 2011 racing wheel, under official license by Ferrari
Reinforced scratched-brushed metal face is heavier and more solid compared to plastic, ensuring optimum stability and inertia
Rubber-textured wheel offering a realistic and comfortable grip.

Disassembled it today and stripped everything not needed.
Not strong enough to be used as is.
Mostly made of plastic but life-sized and detailed. Worth every penny for the information it contains.

(Remember a sculpture or model is really a pictorial blueprint that contains within them all the necessary information to recreate their image exactly but can also be modified by skewing and in an almost endless manner of alterations.)

Currently studying methods and techniques to construct a heavy duty version of this steering wheel. vertigo

Thanks for showing us the inside Vert. You don't think you will use it to sandwich around a real steering wheel?

sly,
"Thanks for showing us the inside Vert. You don't think you will use it to sandwich around a real steering wheel?"

Sandwiching around a real steering wheel and filling in with fiberglass/epoxy resin is a possibility.

Using the plastic steering wheel as a master for a mold and casting around fabricated steel parts seems more likely for me.

Placed a copy of this post here for anyone planning to and/or actually building a Bat Vehicle.
WAERZENGINEER
"So, I'm interested... which stuff are you using a plasma cutter on, and which stuff are you using abrasives on to cut?
First up, I always use good eye protection and an NP100 dust mask.
Grinding and cutting with abrasives fill the air with micro-particle of silicone and other abrasives, as well as fiberglass and metal particles that can be very damaging to your lungs in surprisingly after a short period of exposure.

Use to run a plasma torch to cut a lot of my steel parts but now I use metal cutting circular saws to do 95% of my metal cutting. Metal cutting circular saws are four times as fast as a plasma torch and leave near perfect edges that require only a quick pass with a file to break the sharp edge. Rarely use an abrasive cut off wheel except for hardened rusted bolts, etc.

My "friend" just gave me an estimate for water jetting some of my batpod parts and now I think anyone could definitely justify investing in a plasma cutter for a tumbler project, or better yet, a CNC machine with the possibility of attaching a plasma torch to it.

Seems to me, financially...
Bandsaw < Plasma Cutter < CNC Plasma < Outsourced < Replacement Cutoff Wheels / Sawzall Blades
What do you guys think? It all depends on how much money you have. If you make a lot of money you might pay for almost everything to be done. Unless, you like to do it all yourself. Not enough money, you can do most everything yourself and spend your limited funds on materials and hand power tools. Or, some place in between.

P.S. anyone else scared sh!tless of using those thin cutoff wheels on an angle grinder? One snapped once while I was cutting off an exhaust stud on "Kimmy" and it lodged into the sideskirts... Luckily, I was wearing contact lenses and the time, so my eyes were protected".
CONTACT LENS WOULD NOT HAVE SAVED YOUR EYE(S) IF A PIECE THAT SIZE HAD STRUCK YOUR EYE(S).
A TINY SPLINTER OF METAL OR PARTICLE OF THE GRINDING CUTOFF WHEEL CAN EASILY PENETRATE THE NON-SHIELDED HUMAN EYE.

I have had abrasive wheels come apart in my angle grinder. I usually do my cutting when using an angle grinder with my leather welding jacket and leather welding gloves on wearing a full face shield. vertigo
