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).
In this video I’m going through each step of wiring up the ideegeniali KITT dashboard electronics.
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.
In this video I’m showing you how I used my Firebird’s steering wheel cover to wrap and stitch its leather onto the steering wheel.
In this third and final repair episode of the KITT Trans Am series I’m going through changing the rear inner impact bumper, painting a KNIGHT INDUSTRIES logo on the air filter lid, swapping out the old indicator stalk with a brand new unit, installing T-Top sunshades, as well as replacing the broken T-Top drips rails and the respective weatherstrips with new ones. There’s even a little extra, watch the video till the end and you’ll find out!
In this episode I’m going through the transmission oil & filter change, the differential oil change, as well as the replacement of the track arm and rear control arm bushings.
