– 2 Car SET!! –badbat2carBanner1_2014

ORIGINAL “BAT” styled Graphics
Candy Blue / Silver Colors
Batmobile has Multilayer Airbrushed Flames!

ONLY 5 of each casting available !!


* How they started *

All the original finish was removed, bare metal was smoothed of casting lines.
VW logo on bus noses were ground smooth to utilize a smooth surface for the modern bat logo.
Castings were then cleaned, sanded, and primed with automotive grade lacquer.
Then AutoAir Base Coat Sealer was applied and the REAL fun began!


* The BadBat Concept *

Being a batman fan myself, this concept was fun to say the least!  I styled all graphics and colors from batman elements, but all are completely UNIQUE!  The BadBat logo is my own moniker, as are the tribal bat (top of bus) and the more modern bat on the bus noses!  The point Im making is that these graphics are not found anywhere else and are unique, even tho they look as if they could have been a part of the batman world  in print or film.


* The 66 Batmobile *

Based in custom mixed Pearl White, Then sg100 clear applied before the custom made maskings were installed on both sides of fins and the hood for the BadBat logo.  Wicked Jet Black was applied and then alclad chrome flames were airbrushed on in two layers, followed with custom mixed heavy pearl blue and white flakes for extra bling!  Two coats of custom mixed candy blue were applied, allowed to dry, then masking was removed. A specially matched, high resolution, laser decal of the carbon fiber “badbat” logo was applied where the mask was on hood, sealed with SG100, then two more coats of the candy blue were applied, in a fade pattern producing a subtle gradient darker in the rear, lighter in front…looks amazing!


* The VW Drag Bus *

The Drag Buses were based in a custom mixed Orion Silver/white pearl flake color that glimmers like diamonds!  This base is then given a couple coats of SG100 clear to smooth it out and lock in the flakes.  Then two of the specially designed laser quality graphics were applied, allowed to dry thoroughly, then sealed with SG100 to protect these areas while additional masking is done.  Then the upper sides, center of nose, the top, plus freshly designed tribal flame maskings were meticulously masked off leaving the lower sides and rear wing exposed for the custom mixed Candy Oriental Blue with a pinch of blue pearl flake to be applied!   Masking removed, the final graphics were applied to upper sides, and the tribal sided flames previously created.  Then the entire thing was coated generously with SG100.
