I hopefully will have some pictures tomorrow.. my package just arrived at my mailing depot that has 4 shiney new screen accurate tumbler fuel filler caps

I'll try and snag a photo of the drivers side as well that has seen some progress.

I'm going to try and tackle these things today

Batmobile

Anyone know what they used to make these "filled in" rivet looking things?

I just got back from a week in Florida so I'm looking to get back into it.  I made "some" progress on the vents but I don't have any pictures of them yet

The Tumbler is Dead

I just wasn't finding any time to work on the project.. so many things taking up time that it was going to end up taking me about 10 years to finish this project.

I am saddened for having to chop it up into pieces and take it to the dump.

Instead I am pouring more money into my other batmobile.. It is my summer/show car that I have done a lot of wrenching/bodywork on in the past. So I am trying to finish it up as best I can this year for the show circuit.

So for those of you who are looking for exact TUMBLER fuel filler caps.... I have 4 of them... just PM me for details.

For reference, the TMBLER plates will be going on this

That's scary to see someone put that much work into it and finally realize its just too much. Makes me appreciate all the work involved, (and wonder what I'm getting myself into).

I know exactly what you mean. I am planning on building one at some point myself, and after having talked with Bob via email and seeing other peoples work on this board, I am trying to get as much research done as I can ahead of time and waiting until I feel like I have my life in a place where I can really devote a lot of time to the project. Bob was telling me that my wife would get seriously neglected when I started building this thing...so I eliminated that problem and got divorced. It's really not funny, but it will free me up quite a bit.
