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!
KNIGHT RIDER CARS
Here's another one for the collection folks. :-) This video was never intended to be assembled like the way it is. Actually, this is my Kitt car, and my buddy Joey's Kitt car. Joey stopped by, I grabbed my camera, we took the cars out and went nuts. :-) Don't try this stuff on your neighborhood streets kids......we did....and attracted a law enforcement vehicle. :-) It's all good though, he got a kick out of the Kitt cars strutting their stuff. Just another addition to the video collection of the "Oklahoma Knights" doing what they do best........having fun with their Knight Rider cars. :-) Peace all....thanks for sharing. Mike
