Hey Justin did you ever see that hidden seat batmobile? I think it had a second steering wheel, brake and gas pedal...Any plans on coming up? BWD


My grandpa just got his truck back from the repair people (ran into an airplane hangar while doing work on their outdoor lights), so I have something that can pull the trailer now. We're looking at sometime before this coming Monday!

PS - the guy building Dan Rodriguez' '89 also built a hidden seat Batmobile (he also built the Carmel car). I don't know if it is the same one you are referring to.

I sat down with Doug in Ohio several months ago while I was driving cross country. I asked the man to please make an '89 kit that would blow all others out of the water......... I asked him to fix the dip in the top scoop, I asked him to re-build the hood to regain the original raised qualities that are inherent in the original. He spent some time with Jack on the phone over several months, and Jack told him some other things he could fix on the kit to make it better. After a great deal of patience and hard work, I believe he has succeeded in making the best '89 kit on the market (of course, this is without seeing all the improvements Kevin has made to his kit!). It is being smoothed and prepared for molding right now, and should be on the market soon! I can't wait to have mine...

Hey Justin, that is very nice....all it needs is a chassis.....Hey does anyone know how those front vents are suppose to be cut? The three in front of the front wheel. I can see the indentation but cannot figure out how to cut those. I apologize upfront if that's a silly question, but I would like mine functional......I like how Doug cut the side louvers by the side intake, I would like to do that. It would be cool to put two radiators behind them like the real Testarossa's have.....BWD

The cutouts on the rear taillights was a bear to do. After the lenses were set there is a need to build up around the lense bases......The attachment for the 308s are sraightforward but the Daytonas have those silly lense frames.....BWD

Hey Doug, I was just wondering how the base for the rear taillights match up with the lenses. Hey Nitro I'm sorry if I took time away from Doug's build......BWD

THATS AWESOME WORK!   and what i am about to say sounds like an insult and i DONT mean it like that .  

BUT, what about widening the rear fenders to the "original" specs?
