Re: K.I.T.T. VU Meter

The board from Jameco should be able to power all the LEDs in the Jupiter circuit. I made a similar Vu meter from scratch, using only a schematic I found on line, which ended up being wrong anyway. I found the problem and fixed it, and amended the schematic. If you've never done anything with electr...

Re: My 3d KITT done in Maya!

Amazing work! Very nice job. I have a KITT that I am making and would like to offer some help on your interior if I may. The seats only have that plastic trim that covers the hinge on the outside of the cushions, not on both sides. The seat cushions are directly against the center console. See my pi...

Re: K.I.T.T. VU Meter

I bought the PC boards from Jupiter and then bought this VU meter kit from Jameco, which makes the circuit building easier and actually ends up cheaper than trying to find all the components needed: http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10001_10001_147643_-1 I built the Jameco mete...

Re: Hot Wheels KITT San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Pre-Order

Just received word from Hot Wheels contact...this is INDEED a 1/64th diecast. He didn't mention the scanner or voice chip, but I assume it is probably part of the packaging and not the actual car.

You know this is just a TOY right? All details wont be 100% correct. You´re right!!! You are a toy collector. I am a scale model car collector. Can You feel the difference?

Yikes! Was that Don Colie's scan boards? Good thing you were able to get them out in time.

Re: Questions about a 1982 KITT restore

Hello and welcome. Making a Knight Rider conversion is a daunting task. My best recommendation is to first decide which Season KITT you want to make, as the noses are all different. Then, Google Image Knight Rider KITT 1982 (because you don't want pictures of the Mustang KITT) and you will have a lo...

Re: About the detals of 1-2 season overhead console

I don't think there are any clear screen shots of the Season 1 or 2 dash (they are different). Here are pictures of what my console will look like. This is Season 1. I don't know who owns this console. It is from what we can piece together from watching Knight Rider episodes. The only thing that is ...

That's the car folks, the screen used Kitt #1083/1197 found about 7 years ago, restored and sold at Kassabian motors on 2007. This is the car you saw at KR events in Vegas, one of the pilot cars. Tony Tony, If this was a pilot KITT, has any modifications been done on it? I would LOVE to see a pictu...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

The desert shot of KITT looks like it's from the episode "Goliath" which is 2nd season opener. Most of the time the nose was the same in season 2 and 3 and your model looks perfect copy of that In 1st season, the areas both side next to the scanner opening had covers for turnsignals and 4...

Don Collie's original Season 1/2 dash is not accurate at all. It's easy to see if you compare the pictures on his site to any from the KR series. Don has acknowledge that fact and supposedly has fixed the inaccuracies and made the whole dash accurate. However, there aren't pictures of his new and im...

Thanks for clearing that up for me, Joe. Maybe I'll clarify that by saying there are no 1st Season Cars with the original Scheffe nose left.

You do realize that the nose on the Hot Wheels is a Season 1 and yours seems to be a Season 3 nose. And I am VERY impressed with your work on this. Amazing attention to detail. Excellent!

Re: Is the original KITT coming to the festival ?

As far as I know, all screen used KITT were destroyed after Knight Rider was cancelled. It was an agreement Universal Pictures made with GM for providing them with the Trans Ams. The only KITTs that are around, besides the fan conversions, are either from the Universal Studios theme park, or those t...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

AWESOME! I see they took my suggestion and removed the front ground effects. I've also suggested possibly making the dash light up and gave them a solution to how they could do it simply and cheaply. They liked the idea, so let's see if they incorporate it into this great diecast!
