Hi all, glad to have found such a nice place to gather knowledge on this lifelong dream project, i've been a Batman fan since i was very little, never missed a TV series episode and i even had a Batmobile pedal car i rode every afternoon, obviously with my matching pijamas

I'm planning to start a '89 Batmobile around the end of the year, I've just started doing the research, first step, measuring the garage, its a long car!

I've decided for this model over the 60's series mostly because my son loves airplanes and he goes crazy with the turbine on the Keaton car, im building this with my 7 year old son as a first father-son project, i travel a lot for work and this build its the perfect motivation to spend time together when im home

Thanks for all your replies to my questions already and hope not to bug too much with more questions going forward

nice donor. that seemed to be the hardest part for me, finding a car worth donating to the cause, and being re-born as the coolest car ever. by the way, i posted the link to that aviation salvage company i found here in texas, on my log. hope it helps you out, cant wait to see your progress

Cleaned garage today, seems that it will be VERY tight for the shell and the donor to be side to side.... looking for a place to reposition kids little tikes and bicycles....

Visited Lowe's to get some pricing on welders and some other tools, seems that it will be the Lincoln 140, they had a good price on it, all my experience has been on stick welding, but this one looks fun

Donor goes for tune up, oil change and brake service Tuesday....I took out some of the "security" and other stikers today also, i plan to drive it a little bit...it rides soo smooth
