I'm new here, but I've been lurking the boards for some time and checking in regularly on Taoworm's Youtube channel. Someone mentioned the under dash lighting, I've accomplished it and thought you guys might like to see it. Here's a link to my Cardomain page. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3074533

On the dash lighting, I used a Dremel to cut the holes. The drivers side is easy, the passenger side is a little more complicated because there's a metal brace for the airbag in the leading edge of the dash. Then I covered the holes with pieces of a diffuser from an office florescent light fixture. They're wired up to come on whenever the key is on ACC, and I'm using blue 12 inch OPTX thin tubes, but I want to switch to 15 inch eventually.

--Oh yeah, and the orb computer is amazing! And I'm interested depending on fundage when they're released!

Thanks! No problem on the heads up. I'll try to take some pics to show where the bracket is.

The center screen is for my car computer. It is connected to the radio with a PIE auxiliary hookup. It has iNav 3.0, Frodoplayer (with a custom skin loosely based on KI3T's center screen from the pilot) for my music, and runs on Windows XP. The CPU is actually in the trunk. I'm thinking about turning the power point under the screen into a USB plug to load maps and music. I'm still thinking about where to relocate it if I decide to get Taoworm's orb.
I'm actually looking for some animated gifs or flash animations of KITT rotating (like on the HUD) for the pc. Anyone know where I could find one?

Oh yeah, and it will become KARR when I'm done. Since KARR's interior was never shown, it gives me some artistic lisense.

lphill01,
I have the original mustang animation graphic from the pilot. I will be selling the center LCD console and fiberglass bezel along with the original animations from the pilot. Let me know if you wanna go that route.

Again the items I will be selling for Mustang owners is:

The Knight 3000 Interactive Voice Orb (Responds in Val Kilmer's voice) HD audio Not taped from episode but before.

The Center Console LCD and bezel

The laser HUD system with a clear laminate for the windshield that displays the graphics of the spedo and tach. Includes 2 or 3 laser projectors for windshield projection.

The blue dash lights

Holographic gauges (Patented and created just for this project)

Green laser scanner ( Two mounted green 300mw laser diodes with a flat angle beam intensity, widely dispersed.)

Plus 2 other projects in the works. :good:

Update: I ordered my hood today. I'm expecting it to come in the end of next week. It should be painted and installed by early Sept. I'll have to do vinyl stripes myself.

Take a multimeter and ohm out the airbag itself. That should do it.

My body shop could do the vinyl stripes or paint them (for an extra $2700), but I'd find more satisfaction by doing them myself. 8)

That $2700 would be for painted stripes.

:dash4:

I am about to purchase a beautiful black 2005 Ford Mustang and convert it to Ki3t. I have the Knight Rider voice recognition software custom made by a computer engineer and it is highly responsive and advanced. Now my car will truly have a piece of artificial intelligence embedded inside of its luxurious cabin!!! :good:

I then plan to purchase the Kitt scanner and install it?? Does anyone know where I can find the 2008 Knight Rider steering wheel???? I have searched everywhere?

The steering wheel for the pilot is a Momo Millennium steering wheel.
If you want the one from the series and not the pilot then I have to ask why...and check you for a fever... :lol:

That's NOT the right hood KnightRider87t/a. The one you posted is a venom hood.

This is the Venom hood and it's made by Trufiber.

The one posted is made for the stock Mustang front end, however the Venom is made for the GT500 bumper. The Trufiber Venom hood is the only wayfor non-KR owners to get the KR hood. Shelby is not selling any KR hoods except as a replacement part for GT500KR owners, and they must return their old hood first.
I'll post pics of the Venom hood on my KI3T by the beginning of next week when it arrives. 8)
