Hey everyone, I am still building. Every piece MT built has to be taken apart, rebuilt or completely remade and it is taking a lot longer than I thought. I decided to add an overhead console just for the fun of it. It connects to the top of the rear console and really adds to the overall appearance of the interior. Here are photos of the wood mock up of the rear console and overhead console, finished steel rear console and the nearly completes steel overhead console. Both the rear and overhead consoles still need to be covered in black leather then reinstall the aluminum panels and wire them up. A lot of the switches will just turn on lights, but some of the switches will operate various bat gadgets

Thanks guys, and yes Radio Shack and Auto Zone have become good friends. They even call me Batman at Radio Shack and my steel/aluminum supplier. Trust me, I look nothing like Batman. LOL!!!!

I have been working on my tilt front end and it is coming along nice. When I got the original car from MT, the body was one piece and there was no way to work on the engine. So, I cut off the front end and built a steel frame to hinge it on. Here is a picture of the steel frame being test fit. The front hinges are not on in this photo, but they have been fabricated. I have since removed it, finish welding it, cleaned it up and now I am attaching and fiberglassing the steel frame to the front clip. Once that is done, some final fitting, body work and then paint.

Nice Job Dane. I am not sure how your canopy opens but I put a rail all the way to say ...your center brace in the middle of your engine compartment it is nice to have hood and canopy open at times. I dont know if that will work for you but something to think about, if yours does not do that all ready.

I have a center track and supports mocked up, they are not in the photo. I have tested my conopy system, it works but still needs adjusted. The canopy has to be closed to tilt the front end as the track is part of the chassis. The actuator I have is not as fast as I want it to be and have been looking for something faster. I have a friend in the auto alarm business and he is helping me with the remote fob control. The canopy system has really been a challange as I have never designed anything like it before. I know a dozen ways how not to make it, ha! ha!!!!

Hey Wayne,

Congrats on the awesome build looks like everything is comming out great! Well I'm a newby to this site and I have been drooling over all the pics and coments that I have seen so far. I'm a machinst in Cali so if you guys have something that needs to be machined I'll be more than happy to help. I'm still in school for engineering, hopefully I can get my own ball rolling sometime soon and talk about my build too. Great job everyone, hope to talk to some of you guys and exchange some info.

Thanks, it has been a blast. I have to admit that I have learned a lot from the builders on this board.
