Re: Vacuforming interior parts

Another viable option, the cost might be prohibitive though with 3d printing of something that size, then i'm not up to current on project pricing for 3d printing.

It was an hour long Ford commercial that meets Transformers mid way.

Re: Video: Knight Rider obsessive spends 12k on his KITT

Close to 20k usd isn't that bad (turn keys I have seen start at 40k to 60k) More power to him for being a dedicated fan of the show :) My conversion is going to cost me 17.4k to 20k when it's all said and done and I feel I am getting off cheap lol. Coincidentally my name is Scott too lmao

Re: Do you think the Pontiac Rageous would be a current K.I.

prolly because even today they are more aerodynamic than most of todays wheels (never will understand how car makers think a brick i.e. any chrysler car, et al, is more aerodynamic than a wedge i.e pretty much any Ferrari/super car) that and the fact those wheels...they are KITT as much as the red s...

Re: KITT or KARR?

KARR being the bad guy of the series wasn't produced as much for the retail market, KITT being the real star (sorry Hoff) was the first and foremost produced on the memorabilia schtick.

as far as what I prefer personally, it's KITT...everyone wants to be the hero :)

question about the dash in 1/1 scale K2T

Afternoon all, I have lurked and posted for a few years here and have seen amazing replicas from 1/64 to 1/1 scale and I have a question about the 1/1 scale KITTs. I have looked at the dashes and I guess I am missing them, but where are the AC vents? I am about to get a firebird donor for my K2T pro...

Re: KR Movie: Hoff talk & wishful thinking?

I can see it now, After Devons death, Bonnie takes over as the head of FLAG and pulls KITT out of storage (after Michael goes walkabout for several years, being burnt out) She totally reconfigures the tech inside KITT and updates the polymer shell while keeping the the outer appearance the same.

Re: Tale of the Tape: Knight 2000 vs. Knight 3000

Weapons? The 2000 only had a powerful laser wtih 2/3 shots for a short while and a handheld semi-automatic. Those chain guns on board the 3000 were easily superior. When comparing Defense vs. Offense thinking, the only thing TOS KITT had was when he went killer and smashed through everything in sig...

Re: Kenner Knight Rider Voice Car Repair?????

if and when you do take it apart, like SPEEDBREAKER said watch those clips!, once you get the body off try adding a couple of drops of oil to the motor first, if that fails take apart the voice box OVER a box. There are a couple of small parts that will fall out once you pop the cover off it. The ru...

@imranbecks, you might try what I did and do a 2000 then 3000 grit sand paper on the windshield to smooth it out, then a light high gloss clear coat over it (it's the same effect as taking oil and rubbing it on frosted glass to make it transparent) It worked beautifully on my KRVC windshield (mine w...

Re: TRU exclusive Minimate KITT

Got mine a while ago at TRU, my only beef with it is that the dash stickers wouldn't stick, like there was an oil residue on the dash (had to use miniscule amounts of rubber cement to get them to stick) other than that, gorgeous little piece :) Goes great with my SPM KITT :)
