1982 Pontiac Firebird Transformation into KITT from Knight Rider
Having an (unhealthy) obsession with the 80's TV show Knight Rider, like many fans of the show, I had to have my own KITT. But you can't really just go out and buy these cars, so I had to build one. This video shows some of what's involved into creating KITT from Knight Rider. At least from a body work perspective. I was lucky enough to obtain an almost rust and dent free car, and after getting a few (huge) quotes from a couple of local paint shops for what is essentially a full bare metal respray, I decided to tackle the tear down myself. And with the help of a mate, who also happens to be an ex automotive painter, he worked his magic on the bodywork/spray gun side of things. I think he did a pretty good job! I'm sure you'll agree. My advice to you if your going to do one, find a black one to start with!
