$565 per wheel, $1200ish for the GT500 bumper assy, $600 for the HID healights (ebay), $160 for the driving lights $2000 for the hood (carbon fiber) and I don't remember what the scanner cost. All in done in small portions since 2008. And I still have a way to go. The hood needs to be painted, still need a chin splitter, stripes, carbon fiber mirror caps, brake duct bezels, rear bumper, KR head rests, possibly a decklid spoiler, and I have to get a dent fixed that someone here was more than kind enough to leave me anonymously at the mall.

Your car looks great. I still need the rear bumper for mine.

If anyone is still building a KITT 3000, I am going to be building the correct air vents for the car and if you are installing a ORB, I will include extra covers to match the vents. Please PM me for details.
Thanks Ted

Ordered my rear GT500 bumper, but I don't think it will be painted in time for Vegas.

I'm still wondering if I should. And if I should go with the two stripes or the single. Or none. But I sure will once I figure it out.

I used a L bracket to mount mine in. I drilled 3 holes into the lense and L bracket. Be very careful not to crack the lense.

I have the lenses that I bought from you last year, they are a tight fit. I would really have to shove them in there. you didn t use any type of adhesive to help hold them in place? I took it to a shop to have them glued in but nothing they had was able to hold them in place. I see what your saying with the L channels, but would like to glue them in too just as a secondary hold. The problem with this is gluing plastic to fiberglass is not as easy as you think it would be according to the shop i took it to. Any other suggestions?

I used a silicone to seal the lense in so water wouldn't get to the lights. As with every hood, They can be the same hood but made different. You may want to sand the edge a little if its a tight fit. Did you heat the end and curve it to fit the curve on the ends? Dont hold the heat too long, I took mine and heated it a little and then curve the end a little and then test fit it.

So the sillicone acted as an adhesive too? Which Sillicone sealer did you use?

I just ordered my last piece for my stang. I bought the venom hood off of eBay. The only thing I need is to have it painted black & get a hood scanner. I'm excited to get this all done before end of summer. I do have a few questions though. I've been reading about installing the scanner. I live in Texas & the weather is well unpredictable. It's like 80 one day & then 15" do snow the next. What can I do to waterproof it? Any suggestions or any help would be great. Oh what kind is diffuser & plexiglass do I need to use? I have so much to ask!!

Well, the one from Jason is waterproof, I have had 2 scanners from Jason and I drive my car everyday in the rain, sun and snow and no problems. I got the second on cause I wanted a brighter scanner. The one from the guy that made them for the show are NOT waterproof. Plus there is about a $3000 difference between them. I wanted the real thing but I just couldn't put that much money out on them. When you install the lense in the hood, use a silicon sealer around it on the inside, I can spray water right at it and no problems.

Well, getting ready to rewire KITT, work on the hand scanner in the glove box and just start cleaning KITT up. Havn't drove the car that much since I got hurt at work (Aug. 2), Got a spider bite on my leg in a trailer that landed me in the hospital and now I have nerve damage in my leg. It put a quarter size hole that was 4 inches deep. Couldn't walk for almost a month. Also they fired me when I was in the hospital (have a lawyer) and I havn't found a job. Anyway, getting him ready for World of Wheels Chicago 2014 and Vegas 2014
