    Another entertaining video! Kudos to you Scot for all the hard work you put into the website and products. I’m glad I.D. was able to add the lever I forgot. Everything looks great, I can’t wait until we can all get our hands on these Bat-goodies.

    One final note…(more of a question really), is MIT going to be adding lug nuts to the Rader’s? Okay, enough outta me. I gotta get back to work on more parts.

    Thanks Kevin! The lever was a cool addition for sure. I am not sure about the lugs on the Radirs, I’ll defer that one to Mit. I know that a set of all four aluminum machined wheels is fairly price prohibitive so – these are a ‘pull out all the stops at any expense’ kind of upgrade. But boy, they look nice!

    Those seats look great…but as expensive as the ID parts are, I’m dreading to see the final pricing for them… :(

    The seats are not technically I.D. parts. They are PMB! parts that Bats Inc. and I.D. helped design. Trust me, if I.D. produced them, they’d be like miniature real leather and steel upholstered seats and I’d personally pay whatever it cost for a set! As far as the final price of the seats, or of any of our parts – the prices are based on material costs and labor costs. For example – a piece like the I.D. Detect-a-scope is so beautifully complex and elegantly made – it is a STEAL at $49.99. But you have to see it in person to realize that. And, obviously, you have to have the desire and wherewithal to want to improve your Batmobile to that commitment level. I have tried to offer a lower-priced, less ambitious part option for many of these pieces for an economic option. The seats will have the chromed vs. non-chromed options and obviously the non-chromed ones will cost less. There’s a chance I might cast a whole, one-piece solid resin replacement seat as a “standard” lower price part, but to be honest, most of our client base would prefer paying a bit more for the highest grade parts, rather than the more pedestrian lower priced versions. Like 10 to 1 actually. So I have to weigh the cost of molding and casting another version of the seats just for a few people that might want to save a few pennies versus just making the best balls-out seats we can make for whoever can afford them. Luckily, it’s not medicine or food and nobody HAS to buy any of this stuff. :)

    Phil,

    I hope my Insane Detailing parts will be known for their outstanding quality, even though not the cheapest things out there. Since everything so far has been hand-made, hand-finished, and Ready-to-Install, it does take time to make. Hey, I’m unemployed right now, and living really modestly, so I can understand where you are coming from. But all I can say is that I’m pretty confident that you are getting far more than your money’s worth compared to other custom-made model parts out there (like aircraft, military, and car other related items). Since I live and try to survive here in the good old US of A (and not some foreign country where they can pay someone MUCH less and you can get a roof over your head for peanuts), I’m doing it primarily out of my interest to make and share a better Batmobile with others.

    For anyone that chooses to add any of my parts to their car, I hope they realize I’m not getting rich making these parts. You might be surprised how much time, research, and experimenting goes on before I ever release anything to the public (I’m a bit of a perfectionist). As long as I can (and people want them), I will try to keep doing this.

    I can’t wait for the all future parts >> center console,bat seats with chrome frames,diecast beacon and all other future parts to be released, im buying all the most expensive future parts… it looks PMP is about 50% on authentic batmobile detail parts and need another 50% to complete everthing to the movie Batmobile Car has, if it wasen’t for PMP selling these parts are Batmobiles would of look like lots of details missing just a replica model adding the PMP detail parts makes the car look very authentic real life looking thanks to PMP they made it possible……keep on making as much detail parts as you can????

    It’s good to know the info about the seats. I can imagine them being offered in leather! You’re right, though–casting up a one-piece option probably isn’t a good idea for them, though. As for the Detectascope, I’d had a Parts Kit #1 order in queue with the hopes of getting a cast ‘scope for a bit less money. I kept looking at the ID scope, then imagining $50 in my hand, then the scope again, and just couldn’t see spending that much even though it looked great. Now I guess that’s my only option.

    I understand the parts take a lot of craftsmanship, and they do look great. Fantastic, actually. :) If the economy and my own finances didn’t suck so badly, I’d be doing my Bat up will all of your parts…

    “Now I guess that’s my only option.”

    Phil, the standard issue D-Scope was added back to the PMB! parts ordering page a few days ago. we are slowly but surely getting most of the parts from the upgrade set that are still feasible up there and available again.

    That’s great news! As soon as that D-scope is available I’ll be buying most of the parts that have been re-listed (extinguisher, phone, etc.). Thanks!
