I have a Stern replacement ugly matte Batmobile riveted on the orange/pink disc.
I bought the shiny black (better) Hot Wheels Batmobile with the metal bottom, the yelobird Batcave walls, clear disc and decal kit to replace it. "How hard could it be to put that together?" I added myself.
I don't have a drill any more.
I don't know what size bit I need to drill into the Batmobile.
I don't have a rivet tool
I don't know what size screws or rivets are needed.
I don't know which type of loctite I should use.
I should probably put some sort glue in the hole to better grab screws if I use screws.
I spent the afternoon at a Home Depot. I am way out of my element at Home Depot.
I bought all sorts of #6 metal screws, some self drilling, some not. $250 later, I may have what is needed to secure a $10 Hot Wheels toy to a plastic disc along with a Batboat load of stuff I probably don't need.
I came home and played with the rivet tool one the original defective Batmobile.
I can't find my Xacto knife set to trim the decal.
I don't have steady hands any more, so my daughter is going to drill holes in a the new Batmobile.
I have a spare new Batmobile in case there is a mistake.
I didn't know glue dots weren't actual glue dots.
I have the utmost respect for those of you that can create mods for games and a total lack of sympathy for those who complain the modders charge too much. 'It's only $x in parts" they say.
And $y in tools that you may never use again. And $z in parts that cost more to ship than buy. And skill, desterity and patience to assemble everything.
To Docquest, Yelobird, mk6pin, Tim Mezel and others who dream up and create terrific mods for Batman 66 and other games - thank you. Your creativity is amazing and your willingness to create plug and okay mods for those of us that should know better than to try DIY are very much appreciated.
I'm not even going to try MT45's Catwoman jewel mod. I have all the parts. Maybe my daughter will build new one for Christmas.
Keep the creative juices flowing guys. And if anyone complains that your mods are too expensive, send them my way and I'll tell them you probably don't charge enough.
