KR inspired accessories/conversions

Post by DLAspider » Mon Jul 04, 2011 9:09 pm

On this forum I’ve seen near-perfect replicas of KI2T and KI3T, which are pretty cool, but I’d like to see partial conversions, whether actual work done or ideas in progress. Something like a KR steering wheel in your daily ride, or an Ipad mounted in your dash with an app that is reminiscent of the KR2008 2 hour pilot. Or even a more complete conversion inspired by Knight Rider but with your creative change in design to make it original.

I'm doing a replica of KARR with a few slight changes. I'm building a "post battle with KITT rebuild" instead of just a prototype of KITT. The backstory on mine is that since KARR had the ability to rewrite his own programming, he figured out how evolve into a virus similar to the Archer virus, downloaded to the net in his last few seconds, and infected a normal Mustang's onboard engine computer, slowly reshaping the car to meet his needs with nanotech, and help from "unwilling" people (Kind of like the storyline from KITT vs KARR).

Instead of an orb panel, I have a touchscreen (I might install an ipad), with a GUI system loosely based off of pilot KITT's display with a few auxiliary toggle switches and indicators, the seats and door panels are black, and I have KARR (Iraq Campaign) license plates instead of the standard 77KR117 or KR plates. The rocker panels and rear bumper will be Line-X'd instead of bare plastic, and the stripes might end up being silver instead of black. (I'm also using running horses instead of Shelby cobra badges (personal preference).
