Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

You guys might want to check out Velocity channel at 9:00 EST tonight. West Coast Customs is building a Mustang decked out with microsoft tech, including a HUD system. They're mating a '67 Mustang body to a '12 chassis.

Re: The complete Knight 4000 thread (LOTS of images!)

If they would've painted KIFT all black (even the rims) like your photochop, I think alot more people would've bought into the thought of that as the next step in Knight Industries cars.

Re: The complete Knight 4000 thread (LOTS of images!)

Instead we have this boxy looking 'Bandit style' 1970's looking P.O.S. on the roads now... Why oh why did GM/Pontiac fire all of the good, forward thinking car designers in 1998? I think that was a case of typical GM thinking in terms of the pony car. Much like the conception of the Camaro after th...

Re: The complete Knight 4000 thread (LOTS of images!)

The Jay Ohrberg Stealth conversion is the actual K4000 hero car used in KR2000. I think what he's getting at is how decisions at GM regarding the F-Body evolution determined the design for the Banshee IV concept, which in turn inspired the look of KIFT (Pontiac wouldn't release the Banshee IV to Uni...

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

Thanks for the advise. They do look close, I've also looked at Forgestar CF10 wheels. They look similar as well.

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

I talked to them in person right after I moved here. They said no in a very snotty manner. Apparantly, they frown on building Shelby clones, even while making a quick buck doing it. They had one (without the Super Snake script) sitting in the showroom when I asked. I will try to find out who you ca...

Meh, I guess I shouldn't worry about it now. I just got my hood, and wouldn't be able to get wherls until October anyway.

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

I feel like I'd be more successful finding turbocast wheels with bowling ball hubcaps. I even tried finding black wheels since the 2012 and 50th Anniversary Super Snake is still fitted with them.

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

I actually did. I don't know why, but it looks like you can see the rows of LEDs. You can't in person. I hit it with 220 grit, 320 grit, and took a shot at it with my Mouse sander. I just didn't use my Dremel like I did on the clear lenses because it left marks all over that lit up.

Here's how it came out. I like the smoked. It dimmed it down a little too much, but it's not a crazy attention getter. http://knightrideronline.com/forum/gallery/image.php?mode=medium&album_id=48&image_id=367 http://knightrideronline.com/forum/gallery/image.php?mode=medium&album_id=48&am...

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

Thanks, but I found some smoked plexi and made new lenses today. They're in, but they're probably not as secure as I'd like. How did you secure them?

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

You'd have to contact him to see if he still makes them. He told me mine was probably one of his last a year ago, but things can change. as for the fascia, it seemed cheaper to me (~$1200) but I had the freedom to leave some things out like the fog lights, splitter, and the upper radiator shield sin...

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

Thanks guys! The scanner came from a guy named 1999transamws6 on youtube. The fascia came from Parts.com, their prices were pretty good. Right now, the biggest headache is my scanner lenses. I made 2 (out of 5 attempts) that fit properly, but screwed them up when I painted them with lens tint. So no...

Re: Great New for KITT Mustang Replica Builders!

Finally stopped to get a picture of my progress. New hood, test fitting the scanner. Now, I need wheels, rear bumper and (maybe) a paintjob and spoiler. http://knightrideronline.com/forum/gallery/image.php?album_id=48&image_id=364&view=no_count http://knightrideronline.com/forum/gallery/imag...

Bullitt- Dude!! That looks awesome!! I've always loved the Highland Green Bullitt Mustang, but it looks even better with the Alcoas (I envy that, I can't find them.) I can't wait to see the hood painted.

Hey guys- I've been out of the loop for a while. I just moved to Las Vegas a few months ago and just got back on track. Big news- I just installed my Carbon fiber KR hood!!
