Some Guy in Japan Building KITT

Post by karrknight » Tue Feb 10, 2004 11:07 pm

Has anyone seen the work this guy from Japan has done to create a KITT? I cant understand what the pages say but the pictures speak for themselves. The guy is a genius.

Im speechless. Take some time to browse his pages, you wont be disappointed:

This guy is more than a simple fan. I've looked all the pics and it's amazing!!
I'm building a replica but I'm not going going so far as he does in his research. It would be the most perfect KITT on the earth.

Wonder where he is getting his stuff from. That nose looks very nice. It seems like he is building most of the electronics himself...now thats scary.

...his even building that ultra sonic (phonic?) analyser :shock:

what I don't understand is that he has indicator lights next to the spot lights in the lower nose entry but has a nose from season 1/2 which has the blackout panels for a TA's original indicators.

The website says his watch is going to 1) open door, 2) look door, and 3) open trunk lid.
