    The BATRAM is now complete and I'm very happy and very proud of the way it has turned out. There are a lot of fine details and Bat touches that are not shown in the photos below. I won't bore you all to tears with every detail and the mods list, etc. These can be viewed on my website: Carlwalski.Com The SRT/10 turns heads wherever it goes and while it may not be everyone's cup of tea, I'm over the F%#ken moon with it!!




    Cheers,

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated. :) Now it's complete, I can join in the madness of the VTCOA more. :rock:


    LOL Thanks and yes, that starter button is neat. The guy who made it must be a good bloke! :p


    Batman in general is OK, I just love the cars, the original Keaton Batmobile being my favorite.
    The dark theme and mystery surrounding the cars is what I love about the films.

    My vote for truck of the year. That is amazing. I want to go to NZ just to see it in person. :rock:

    The video is really f-ing cool too. Maybe add some clips of Batman driving and switch back and forth from the real movie to yours. Well done!!!

    Thanks again everyone. While I love the BATRAM, it's nice that others appreciate it as well. :) A big thanks to Sean @ Roe Racing for his help and super speedy delivery as well as Stinker for the mats and TexasYellowFever for the custom start button. The door reflectors were one of the hardest parts to get right, just ask Roe LOL I ended up ordering around 10 in 3 separate orders just to get them perfect lol. :eek:

    I don't like black trucks because of the care it takes to keep the paint looking good, but I gotta say your truck looks tits! The detail is well thought out. Everything from the RHD conversion to the bat logos I think you did a great job. The best part about doing custom stuff like this is enjoying it and getting compliments. Good job!

    You have any plans to do more with the engine bay? It would look amazing to have Justin powdercoat your valve covers and intake manifold in gunmetal...
    I painted all my plastic tanks in my old truck black with a rattlecan (see my coolant overflow tank). It really helped with the flow of the engine layout. Having a white few plastic tank really broke it up. If I got my hands on your truck, I would do everything in this picture with a gunmetal (I wouldn't do flat/gloss black, just for a bit of contrast in the engine bay)....
