Finally made some photo-image progress.
Cut all the front window frames and upper heavy duty 2" x 2" x 3/16" support beam.
Placed the pieces on a leveled support table in preparation for welding.

Reposting this post because I left out some important information about the windows.
The Hot Toys 1/6 Batman Tumbler is the best model to build a full size Tumbler but it has one major flaw:
The two front windows have one single pane each.
In reality each window is composed of two panes that intersect at an angle to each other.
The Hot Wheels elite Tumbler has the correct windows.
Worth having along with the Hot Toys 1/6 if you are actually building a tumbler.

Used angle iron and clamps to stiffen up side window body panels and to setup alignment surfaces in preparation to install other front window related body panels.
