Put 4 more hours on Justice League batmobile bringing total to 93-hours so far on
air intake /hood / top and front of dash board. From my calculations the man hours required to finish these assemblies (100 hours estimate) is approximately 15% of the 700 hours required to finish the body work.
This is my current best estimate but it could run up to a 1000 man hours.

Today I: Completed air intake /hood / top and front of dash board.
Assembled bolts and slats permanently.

Did more layout work on dash board and split canopy window assemblies.

Looks great. Are you going to go with black then instead of gun metal gray?

Thanks for the kind words sly.

I am only using flat black primer until I have completed the body construction.

Priming of these assemblies is not a final finish preparation but rather a prevention to keep rusting of bare metal at bay.

When construction is completed I will paint everything gun metal gray.

Placed a copy of this post here for anyone planning to and/or building a bat vehicle.
Here is the best book ever written on CNC programing/operating systems.
The lathe threading section in particular is extremely well written.
This book is written in easy to understand language and very well illustrated.
I bought the hardback copy because I like to make ink and highlighter marks and notations.

No other book covers CNC control setup in such practical detail. This unique reference from the author of the best-selling CNC Programming Handbook features nearly all of the activities a typical CNC operator performs on a daily basis. Starting with overall descriptions and in-depth explanations of various features, it goes much further and is sure to be a valuable resource for anyone involved in CNC.
Describes working with all types of offsets for milling and turning applications, interpretation of part programs, applying trial cuts, making program changes, and much more.
Places emphasis on troubleshooting many common problems that occur in CNC operations.
Presents suggested methods of correction, along with methods of prevention.

Business and travel demands have kept me away from my Tumbler and Justice League builds. Hope to be back to my builds sometime in late January or early February. Read an excellent book while traveling.
MACHINING for dummies by Kip Hanson
ISBN: 978—1-119-42613-4 copyright 2018

The book is a very well written, 300-page, progressive history/review/summary from past to present covering machine tools, simple and complex metalworking and other materials processes, CNC programming, G-code, computer software, robotics, etc.
I would describe it as the best tool and process summary I have read.
The material is relevant to the building of most parts and assemblies in today’s world.

sly,
"The reason I use an up spiral bit is that it throws the cut material up to the top where the dust collection vacuum removes it. Even with that the foam makes a lot of dust, and it's statically charged so it sticks to EVERYTHING."
Hey sly,
Ever think about fabricating a machine enclosure to control most of the dust.
You could build your self one for 1-200.oo.

Here is the information on the enclosure for the HD5 Shark that go for 600.oo
The CNC Shark Enclosure is designed to help control dust, add safety, and reduce machining noise. Made from Aluminum, Plexiglas and all steel connectors, the CNC Shark Enclosure is designed to give years of service. Convenient hinged access door with magnetic catch allows for easy material removal or bit changes. Pre-drilled 3” hole for cords allows for the case to be placed on any flat surface. The CNC Shark Enclosure works well for schools, trainers or anyone needing additional safety during demonstrations. Fits all CNC Shark HD Models except Slim Line or HD extended, also fits older Pro and Pro Plus models as well as it can also be used with CNC Piranha XL
