Hi everyone,

Well after my false start with the Tumbler build about a year or so ago, I am back on the horse and pursuing my dream of building the 89 Keaton Batmobile. It will be sitting on a 92-96 caprice chassis.

It was what I actually wanted to build at the time that I started the Tumbler build, but now I believe I have acquired the skills, ability, connections and money to make it a reality. I also have my wife's support to make my dream come true. After all.. there's no dress rehearsal for life.. so we need to live our dreams.. and she has been hearing about this dream and seeing me plan for it for the last 15 years

I'll be travelling down to see Doug Hines next Monday to check out the shop and place my deposit. Over the phone Doug sounds like a super nice guy, he has a great reputation on these forums and I can't wait to meet him in person.

And so the journey begins.....

I've also ordered my license plates

Found a great site for knobs for those building a 89 Dash... I picked up a bunch of switches today and I'll be looking for some panel mount LEDs soon
