I was doing some design work on my Justice League batmobile.

The lights used on the movie version don't appear to be sufficient for public road use.

Do you have any thoughts/suggestions on alternative lights and layouts
that would meet regulations to be road worthy?

One fellow suggested that I could modify the light design from the "Predator" car.
After checking this out I see he was really talking about the Plymouth Prowler.

I also believe he was thinking about the light designs from the 1920s and 1930s.
Plan to check these designs out and look at replacement lights used in restoration of these cars.

Been thinking towards a design that would involve scaling up the movie size lights and boosting the internal lights enough to be road worthy. vertigo

I would see how the light output is on those actual fog lights first... you could always hide more led lighting within the nose intakes if they aren't enough.

vertigo (9/1/2019)
hey THEMAN and sly,
Just a few quick questions.

What is the distance from the back of your passenger compartment to the firewall in your donor vehicles?
My proxy layout is at 55 inches.

What do you think the distance should be from the back of your passenger compartment to the dash board?
My current calculations indicate 36-37 inches.

Have you done any layout work yet on planning a dash board set up?
By that I mean like a dash frame etc.
vertigo


back wall behind seat to firewall is 65" at top, 51" at bottom.
back wall to steering wheel 35"
from seat surface your back rests on to steering wheel 28" (to the dash could be another 8-10" added depending on how telescoped your steering wheel is)
from back wall to pedals 49"
from seat surface your back rests on to pedals 42"

hey THEMAN,
Greatly appreciate you taking the time to get those measurements for me.
Hope sly's and your builds are progressing well mechanically.
Will be looking forward to seeing photo-images of your mechanical progress. vertigo
