krkitt1 I can[t help but noticed your putting the carbon fiber skins on your door and such. But also noticed you don't have the leather panels on your door. If you are planning on getting them for the future. Just letting you know I did research every where for it and only way you can get that is by ford but you have to buy the whole inner door panel witch is around 300 for each door. just letting you know bro.

For GT500KR yes they are costumed made bumpers and such. It's Possible if you know people that can custom make your bumpers for you or any part of the car. For where I live I know many people who talk a big game on making their own or as some may say go to the shipyard fiberglass repair shops and ask them if they can and it might cost you a pretty penny. if you ever achieve in making that bumper try get a molding and sell that design you would make a pretty penny. I once had a dodge stratus and a neighbor that used to make his own and he gave me one that he custom made for my car so yeah it can be possible. As I found guys that can do the pilot inteior metal arm rest and front panel for me. Yet since I'm not working I can't get to that any time soon :P.

I must of miss read. But yeah I did mentioned that as it's possible to get your bumpers custom the way you want them to be. As I did have mine for my old dodge stratus from a neighbor friend in my old neighborhood once. I seen him make it from scratch all he had to do was get the inner shell part copied from my bumpers to do so. heck they lasted 2 years till a cop ram sacked me for doing a illegal left turn without his sirens :(. Boy did i make him pay and made sure the guy had a few month suspension witch he did :D. Plus I was just implying that yeah they are custom made and cant get anywhere but if you know the right people that do that sort of work you can get it done :P.

Just bought a 2008 mustang, very much like taoworm's. Already converting it to the knight 3000. Installed the steering wheel on day two. What kinda of blue light bars do you use in the dash and how did you install them?

Nice pierre, Yeah as soon as i get back to work the gt500kr head rest is first priority in my list due to how rare it is to get :P. Also good luck getting the shelby snake black and red leather seats with the cobra on the snake on the upper part of the seat. If i recall the 4 seats is about 2k to get. And I noticed your side door is missing the red leather near the arm rest interior door ends. they don't sell that leather so you may have to buy and custom make them or the whole interior door part will cost you 300 a piece. They only sell it in a full set replacement apparently at ford. So good luck bro.

I was looking at those headrests, now that I've seen them in a customer's car, I'm really thinking about getting them. Looks great!

Hey, Just sent a email to you. If you need more info, please let me know. Also, I need some photos of some of the props used like in KITT's trunk and stuff. The car will be in World Of Wheels next March 2012 and we are putting a display together for the car.
