Ok so i am pretty certain i am going to sell my tumbler replica as i am considering a new project. If any one on the site has an interest in purchasing the car and truck if necessary as a package give me a private message and we can discuss.

Hey paul wayne What percent of your total Tumbler build do you believe
your donor vehicle contributed?

SLY

“Hey, I am getting pretty excited about my work with the DOJ 3d files.
As you may know, the plan is to mill this in foam, make a mother mold,
and produce the body parts. My timeline might come pretty close to
yours.”

“If I can produce the body panels it would be interesting to see if
they would fit on your donor.”

There is no donor vehicle that I found that would allow the mounting
of body panels without significant modifications for the DOJ/Justice
League Batmobile. However, there is one example of deductive building
logic that you have available to you, that I and others don’t have.
That is your physical proxy build.

RULE APPLIED DEDUCTIVE LOGIC: Any donor vehicle, frame, power train,
front suspension, rear suspension, etc. that will fit inside your
proxy vehicle has the potential suitability to support the mounting of
your body panels. You will also have several alignment points to
choose from that will match up to a donor vehicle’s existing
mechanical structures. The donor vehicle in this build chosen is about
compromise and value judgements. I have found no donor vehicle that is
a perfect match but have decided on my donor based on my building
techniques and matching of mechanical and structural elements within
the boundaries of the DOJ/Justice league Batmobile.

I have estimated that finding the right donor is worth 30-40% of build
completion. An excellent example of this is paul wayne’s donor
selection for his tumbler build that probably exceeds 70% or more of
the total build contribution. A closer aligned example to the DOJ is
the one built in Ecuador.

Hi Vertigo i found the the mr2 donar car prob made up about 65 percent of my build. I actually have a buyer the first person that contacted me. He has a 66 89 bat bike and boat so its a good home to go to. I am really tempted to do a bat pod if i could get hold of proper wheels and tyres easily.
