My orininal K.I.T.T. is here!

Post by Darktalon » Thu Aug 30, 2012 7:00 pm

And I'm stoked!!
He arrived this past Monday....he's not without some issues though. Most are pety but replacing those POS Lambo doors is going to be quite the undertaking.

Darktalon, was wondering whose replica dash parts and electronics those were, and who did the custom work?

From what I understand, the dash was from Louisell and the electronics were from Lectric Ent.

That's definitely not a Louisell dash. It's either a Wyatt dash or MCK. Pod looks to be a ADIAT, and lower console looks like a Knight Designs one. Its a really nice replica......that front nose is beautiful. Congrats :D

Thanks Joey.
The upper & lower consoles are both Knight designs as well as the nose.....the nose is #5 out of that mold.

Mike,

Your dash was a Mark's Customs kits dash heavily modified by Andy G. The corrections
were made to make it a lot more accurate as well as make it so it would take Lectrics
electronics.

The switchpods were made By Don Colie from Advanced Designs (Also purchased from Andy
if I remember correctly).

Not sure on the steering wheel but everything else is from Billy from Knight Designs.

Brian....who is Andy G.?
I was under the impression that "Wayne" modified the dash but dude, at this point, nothing surprises me! :roll:

Andy G is a fellow replica builder. He has one of the nicest season one cars out there, His whole car has knight designs products in it.

Brian, are you sure that's the same dash Andy had? I have pics of it and it looks different too me, even the vbox is different, unless the previous owner changed it. As far as I know, the ADIAT pod that Andy had was never attached to that dash, I believe he had a MCK pod with it.

Joey.

Yes, That was the dash Andy modified to take Brenons electronics. I can tell by
the way it is notched by the PANP buttons. Mark made his dash openings down
there to small to take other Vendors electronics. Andy redid the ower shelf to
work with Brenons boards.

The voicebox does look like it was changed out though. Probably from Wayne
(The previous owner) I know he had a ton of trouble getting Brenons new voicebox
to work. I had mnay phone conversations with him on it.

I believe Andy sold the Pod seperately on the board, it was purchased by Wayne.
