The car's filthy, awaiting a wash. I've got a car show to go to next weekend, so KI3T will be all shiny by then.

The KR08 scanner movement is seen at the end of the video, with a close up.

Don't forget about the tires! Add atleast $500 for decent tires too.

Looks hotttttttttttttt! dude! Congratulation, hate to be a perfectionist, but you need to get rid of the side vents, GT badges and antenna, replace it with one that sticks to the wind shield. How much was the complete body kit? Is original shelby or aftermarket?

All in due time...The side vents are bolted onto my quarter panels, so they'll need some body work after removal. The GT badges will be replaced soon (month or so). I would like to shave the antenna, but that's not too high on my list of priorities now.
The front and rear bumpers, headlights, and rims are authentic Shelby pieces. The hood is a Trufiber Venom.

Thanks guys. It really does mean a lot knowing that KR fans are excited about it, just as I am! There will be several more mods before Vegas, and a few surprises as well! 8)

Are you going put the Tiffany Snake on the Grille? If not, think you should get another GT emblem and put it there :good:

but its ur choice

Would you mind sayin how much the shelby pieces cost, and did the shelby light fit directly to the stock GT front fenders?

I got the Shelby front facia, headlamps, etc cost around $1200 plus another $400 for paint. The GT500 rear bumper I got used for $350, it was already black. The hood was $850 plus $750 for paint and prep. The front facia and hood fit fine with the fenders.
I don't plan on getting the Shelby snakes, but will be replacing the GT emblems.

Remove the GT emblem on the side and give it black tail lights and that is the perfect KITT.

I know you are trying to be as accurate as possible, but I would keep it like this.

I agree. I am not a fan of the flat black stripes on KI3T either. Matt's car looks so shiny and indestructible like that without the stripes! I would keep it like it is, but I know Matt, hes gonna be as accurate as possible. :lol:

But really Matt, your KI3T is beyond awesome bro! I hope mine looks half as good as yours. :good:

Flat black stripes is a key part of the car, it just sets apart a KR from a Regular shelby or mustang
