THE DASH! It seems too big to fit properly into the car, without encroaching into seat space. Did anyone modify their dashboard for their model? You have to cut or sand off approximately one millimeter of plastic from both parts of the dashboard. Sand them off slowly and try to graft/cement them to...

With reference to Section 5 - putting together the fanbelt/pulley assembly, it's clear that #43 goes at the rear of the pulleys. Do #39, #104 and #105 also go at the rear (meaning that only the fan itself is at the front)? Yes, you are correct. Only the fan is attached to the front of the fanbelt a...

I too would like to get a hold of those custom SPM parts together with the convertible KITT version. Unfortunately I have only seen them being auctioned off in ebay Germany. No luck with US sellers so far.

Wow, that has got to be the best made SPM KITT model that has ever graced the whole world wide web. Very nicely made, you sure are lucky to have a friend with such skills. :)

Also the MPC kit is more accurate than the AMT/ERTL. There are a number of MPC KITTs on e-bay for under $7, by the way. Make sure you get the MPC kit with either the yellow Corvette promo sign or the Golden Opportunity kit logo. They are the ones with the correct fender vents, tail lights and inter...

You can then brush paint small parts such as the engine and such. Take your time and plan ahead bef...

Michael Knight's watch is ugly when compared to watches of today. Perhaps back in the early 80's it could have turned heads but today....no way.

Check out Jackie Chan's watch in his movie The Tuxedo. Now that one really was a looker.

I'd like the voice of Brent Spinner (Data on Star Trek TNG) to guide me as I drive. Such a cool and unassuming voice (similar to William Daniels?) would surely be a welcome companion. Mr. T? Some passengers specially children may not be suitable for his kind of language.

Re: Need help with AMT/Ertl's kits!

Hello RobWolf , welcome to the community! There are lots of model makers here (myself included) and you will surely enjoy your stay. There are no air vents behind the front wheels. I can faintly see an outline of where they should be, so I dunno if Ertl changed the molds after KR finished or somethi...

If the car has a friction motor at the back then its probably normal to have bigger wheels there. Otherwise I don't know what to make of it.

To me it looks like the previous owner painted the red bar himself. Doesn't look like it came from the factory. But that's just my opinion.

KITT might not be able to safely absorb such an impact when landing after turbo-boosting at 300 mph or more. And neither could Michael, Passive Laser Restraint system or not. And KITT would require a rather long runway to land on. Possible on an airport runway or a desert, but on a crowded city? I d...

That's a nice Kenner you have there Josch. However it needs to be disassembled and cleaned inside and out. It will look a thousand times better after cleaning and waxing, trust me.

If ERTL releases a second version, then they will probably fix it. But if KARR doesn't sell well worldwide, then I really doubt we will be seeing a fixed version.
