The Color of KI3T's stripes

Post by Atlantean2005 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 5:11 pm

First off, like always, I want to apologize if there is a topic like this out on the forum already. I did a search but couldn't find anything. My question is for the people who are doing mustang conversions. What is the EXACT color of KITT's stripes? When I go back and watch the eps, sometimes they look White/Silver (Like during the "rescue" scene in "Knight to King's Pawn") other time's the stripes look Gray. I've also read around on a few threads where some of you are doing the conversions and have mentioned "flat black" as the color. I'm hoping to eventually get my own mustang (whether its bought or I get one from a junk yard to rebuild TOTALLY...ambitious much? haha :mrgreen: ) and do a conversion but I'm just having issues with the stripes.. that and the correct spoiler for KI3t. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks so much! :D

The stripes are flat black. The correct spoiler is the flat-style that's used on the V6 and Pony Package.
KNIGHT RIDER RELOADED is a series of movies on Youtube to represent a different creative avenue to the Knight Rider we knew in 2008-09.

The correct term from Shelby American is "Flat Black"

That's what I was trying to make sure of. I'm going to try to do a mustang conversion (maybe more than just the exterior/interior aspects as well... try to develop my own engine as well! :D) but just needed to get a reference for the right type of spoiler to track down.

If you want a good look at the screen used spoiler - there's some great shots in my photo album.

The actual spoiler used on the mustang as if you were going to the dealership to buy an actual GT500KR. Which I COULD do if I had the money! haha.. One of the local Ford dealerships in my area has a red one. I've been wanting to go and see if I can get some pictures of it. All I would do is tell them it's for a report/project. Wouldn't be a lie but an... exaggeration LOL
