Re: Pics of my KITT washed and waxed

They had your car for 6 months ?? My guy told me he needed my car for 6-8 weeks !!! Converting an '85-92 car has its advantages better engine/trans options. But it isn't cheap since you have to get all the correct parts to convert it. I'm sure those parts werent cheap !! Back in 2003, I struck the ...

Re: Pics of my KITT washed and waxed

That is really amazing. Almost like a mirror. No wonder the show had a few issues, keeping the cars from reflecting things that should not be seen. (Like camera rigs and crew members.) Thanks!! Yeah, I love the mirror look! Turned out exactly like I wanted. I can see how it would have been hard to ...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

So...I went out and took a closer look at kitt's steering wheel. I removed the cover and found I was wrong I wasn't remembering the exact look of the wheel correctly-- it's definitely the same wheel from Dave's pic. Srry for the confusion. Guess that means I have an airbag... It's the same wheel as ...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

With practice, it gets easier... I'm 6 foot 2 inches, and though I have purchased the rear extend brackets from Billy, I've not put them on yet... The wheel itself, is fine, being slim and shorter helps... for turning, I can cup one of the handles and turn it with one hand easily, again, practice.....

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Wow, I'm surprised that Texas is like that! I'm glad I don't have to worry about that-- even having a light mounted is illegal, whether it's running or not?!! And I didn't realize rims over 20" are illegal. Interesting... I bet most people ignore those gray laws tho, like u said. My big pet pe...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Yeah, you're right. I don't see how they would know or pick up on that. It's probably safe. My kitt is a '90 and I thought the car came with an airbag. The wheel looks like it has one, judging by the shape and size. And I was told by the previous owner that the car has one. Hmm... that'd be sweet i...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Why didn't Michael ever get pulled over in the show for all those things? Kitt ran the scanner light on roadways all the time, always had the blackout visible, etc. lol Maybe some of these car laws are gray and don't get enforced most of the time... like technicalities. That's a simple one. In tele...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Thanks for this information, Kentucky KITT. This is very helpful! Using one hand with your palm to control the wheel when turning makes sense. When I watched that video, it was almost like the guy driving the car was trying his best to make the experience look bad! lol I like your dash a lot! Looks...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

I have no plans to get a replica/drive one any time soon; it would be massively impractical on my small farm and the nightmare road I have to get to it. The 85 mph speed limit on the 130 toll to Austin would be fun, though. I went over the Texas laws and they go over even having lights mounted , no...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Thanks guys for all the info. Dave, sounds like you're at the same stage in your conversion as I am. I'm still working on my interior. The exterior is complete. Things I'd have to do: pmd seats, tan interior (mine is gray), dash, overhead and center consoles... To be honest, though, my kitt's cloth ...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Jup, Yeah, the rear view mirror is a must have! lol to be honest, I never realized kitt was missing the rear view in the show. I guess that's bc of the upper console being in the way. I dunno if kitt had seatbelts or not, but yeah, that's another must have. Gotta be safe. I'm not sure to what degree...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

From my understanding, below are the things that are illegal on KITT and KARR. I emailed the local law enforcement here to confirm, but haven't heard back. -taillight blackout -running the scanner while on the road (when it's red or blue). I've been told different things about this law though. Some ...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Thanks! I'm blessed to be able to own him. I got the car when I was 16 in 2002. He was originally white, so I had a white KITT like the Junk Yard Dog episode for a long time. Had him painted in '09. Always wanted to do the dash, but this research is giving me mixed feelings abt what direction to go.

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Yeah Jup, I was disappointed when I saw that video of how hard the car is to operate with the dash in it. I have a KITT that is a replica on the outside, but stock inside. I've been toying with getting the dash, but doing some research like this at first to gauge what it would be like. But, to be ho...

Re: Is KITT hard to drive?

Thanks for the info. That's a scary critique of the driving experience! Looks like he's almost laying down in some shots. He also said the passenger side mirror is blocked from view due to the dash. And it's hard to start because the ignition is tucked. On top of that, he said to get in and out of t...

Is KITT hard to drive?

For all you KITT or KARR conversion owners--
Is the gullwing wheel hard to drive with? What are sharp turns like at reasonable speeds? :D
I have a KITT, but don't have the dash or gullwing yet.

Re: KITT and GTA car (Ruiner 2000)

Well, as awesome as your KITT mod is, you should create your own KR video game! That'd be awesome. It could pick up right where the show left off in '86...have Michael, RC, Bonnie, Devon... u could make it more authentic to the original show than the other video game adaptions that have been created...

Re: Kevin Hart/John Cena in Knight Rider comedy reboot? :(

Yeah, I remember hearing the Chris Pratt rumor, too. And Ashton Kutcher way back. Lol Those never happened, so there's a high probability of it being hearsay. But if it does happen......to imagine this fear becoming a reality, it makes me cringe. Why can't they do it right!?? Lol

Cool! Knight Racer, the KITT you and your team created is super awesome! I can see why Rockstar was jealous!! It's exactly like the original KITT- every detail accounted for. I was out of the loop on these mods. Have there been any other renditions of KITT created for GTA besides Knight Racer's and ...
