Step 20: Final Assembly

Picture of Final Assembly
It rained hard the whole day before, so the majority of the assembly was done on Halloween (2009).  It was the first time I had put it completely together because my garage wasn't big enough.  To tell the truth, she fought me the entire time.  Some of the holes didn't match up and the gaffe tape on the rear tires didn't agree with the bitter cold.  High winds also made it a struggle.

This picture was taken just a couple hours before trick-or-treaters were due to arrive.  The Batmobile was just the centerpiece…I still had other parts of the display (Batman, flying bat rig, sound and lights) to complete, so I ran out of time to add some of the copper details and do some touch up painting.

By the way, the final measurements of my Tumbler were 18 feet long by 10 feet wide.
that is so cool!!
Can you modify it so that it's drivable? If so, what mods would be needed and what construction would be necessary?
Amazing, can you actually drive it?

Unfortunately, I'd have to do some major modifications first (the wheels don't roll). It would be embarrassing if the batmobile started falling apart on the road.

I really loved the time machine you built! Nice job on the whole Back To The Future theme (one of my favorite movies).
