Batmobile 1966 WIP - Rear Deck After Rework

With the rear deck and center console glued to the back of the chassis passenger compartment the deck would not slide flush into the grooves under the rear canopy which left visibly large gaps between the deck and the canopy. To solve this problem I broke the deck free from the chassis (I had used CA so it broke free fairly easily compared to styrene cement) and glued the deck into the grooves in the inside of the body using epoxy. This eliminated the gaps. The rear wall and console could then be slid behind and between the car seats during assembly of the body and chassis.
