After a disappointing first attempt to use my brand new Quickjack 5000TL on my Jaguar XF S, I’m now raising my hopes with KITT, my third gen Firebird Trans Am.
It’s happening, I’ve finally changed my mind and bought the KITT dashboard (2nd season “ultimate edition”) from KRW and the latest version electronics from ideegeniali. Time to unbox the package. Subscribe and stay tuned as I build this dashboard and install it in my KITT.

Join me as I somewhat re-restore my KITT. Over the winter of 2020 / 2021 I gathered a few parts I knew I’d have to replace at some point in the future. When I recently discovered a few oil and coolant leaks, I thought I might as well do everyhting in one go. I was shocked at how many original parts I still hadn’t changed on this car: springs, transmission mount, power steering mount, steering rack, water pump, power steering pump, the spark control module as well as a number of other parts I changed off camera (see below for parts list).
Here’s a quick unboxing video of the ideegeniali 1st / 2nd season KITT dashboard electronics I will be putting together for a friend of mine’s KITT dashboard. That’s right, this one is not for my KITT, but I shall still document the process. Stay tuned for the next steps!
This is a very short introduction of my KITT project, which original intention was to be included in the Planet KITT replica project. Check out the series of videos I’ve made on my KITT Firebird Trans Am in my video library.
In this video I’m showing how to install new turn signal return springs on my 1990 Pontiac Firebird. This applies to many GM cars from the 70’s to early 90’s. Earlier models obviously won’t have airbags, therefore will needs less work to swap out.
In this video I’m showing how to install hush panels courtesy lights on third generation F-Bodies Firebird or Camaro. It’s a fairly simple upgrade that really adds a touch of luxury to the interior.
