Here's some shots of my interior since I got my seats back. Parella cloth looks killer when your vinyl, plastics, etc are correct colors. I love it. Looks very much like what you see on film , especially on Blu-Ray. Blu-Ray , you can actually see the cloth fibers. I also got ALL the interior wired and ready for MP3 files to be loaded to pods. Only thing left is making the rear wiring look nice. Can't wait to get this done and over .... Time to move on ..... I still need to work on engine cover a bit, and get exhaust on, but exhaust is getting Ceramic Coated at the moment and will be ready in few weeks... that's it, game over. I have little stuff to do, that needs refurbished (I know, but 8 years takes a toll on things sometimes) but it will be a ways out before I do so. Hope ya like

Wow, looks amazing. You did a great job with that replica. The last pic looks like the back seat doesn't have any leg room. Guess back in the 80's if you were sitting in a 2 door sports car, you had to sit on your legs.

Just read your whole thread on another forum for this! That is an amazing car!
I love how you put a lot of attention to detail. Haven't seen one better!

Marc, I can't tell you how great that looks. You have done a fantastic job. I'm also honored that you're displaying your SOUTHERN KNIGHTS ATLANTA membership badge from last year in the rear hatch photos. Speaking of SOUTHERN KNIGHTS ATLANTA. I hope you're going to be bringing your KITT to the event this year. I know everyone would love to see it.

Hello Mark,
Thanks for the comment!!! I'd love to make it this year, but my A/C in my house took all my truck and trailor money. I will be trying to make it in my wifey's 82 though. TRY is big words... ALOT going on till then, so hopefully I can get money together to bring it down as it needs new carb also... I'll definately be coming down for sure though. Thanks again sir !!

I know, more pics, but , here is exhaust after on. I forgot to take pics while on lift.. oops... but , I'm also really liking the lowering springs now ... except trying to get under it with jack... hah! I'm impressed with the exhaust from Dynomax. I had this one ceramic coated and yes, it all needs polished, but that will be later. I'm used to Flowmaster, so, different for me, but it's a very cool sounding engine, almost like flowmaster meets factory. Only thing is now, I here every rattle, UGH... Here's some pics.... Thanks to all for support of this project. Thanks!!!

Hands down, this is the single best replica I've ever seen! The amount of hard work and love put into every aspect of this car is astounding and I can only hope to ever achieve a fraction of what Marc has done here when I finally start on my own replica at some point soon. Amazing job!

That engine cover makes it look like you can tell people you have a Knight Industries turbojet or turbine engine with modified afterburners heavily classified.
