I think I'll adjust the contrast up just a tad, but pretty happy with them. I will be happy to print out a final sheet and envelope mail them to folks contributing in these threads... I got the stamp covered, just wanna help my batmobile bros out. Just PM me if you want a set.

Alrighty, enveloped and going out tomorrow...

So I got in the thumb screws and lamp fixtures... Unfortunately I think we are a bit big. The thumb screw tops should be no larger than 1/2" diameter, and thes guys are 5/8". The tapered bases should also be 1/16-1/8 slimmer in comparing to the real wheel.

Damn, looks too big doesn't it. I've led you astray. That's the best thing I could find. I guess Vert's solution is the only workable one then.

not at all, I think you were in the right direction for an alternative... looking at knurled thumb nuts now, and might have found a 7/16 option that should be close enough and cheap enough to give it a try. I'll let everyone know how it works out of course...

the correct driving lights are down to $60 per.... best price I've seen yet on them.

I got some other lamp parts in, slightly shorter and taper down to right size, but may need the large end turned down a bit still, so not an out of the box option yet... I have correct size thumb-nuts on the way, but nothing to report until they're in hand.
I have a steering wheel and install kit for the column spline adapter on the way for the skeleton and mounting of the wheel.

I also acquired a full car for drive-train use in my KITT build, and will be playing with the chassis development on its leftover body. So once I get it on the Jig next month I hope to have some good updates there as well. Will also start mounting interior stuff in it to get that fleshed out and build the tubing around the cockpit properly.

Got the lights today. They look awfully small. Is this right?

Guess so, Need to fabricate the casing around it I guess.
