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!

KITT Firebird Trans Am project – short introduction

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.

Replacing the turn signal return springs

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.

Hush panels courtesy light installation

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 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.

Welcome to a two-video series of the final upgrades to my KITT Trans Am. That’s right, I’ve decided to put all the remaining service, repair and upgrades into two videos. In this video I’m gonna go through the valve cover gasket replacement and the painting of the covers, changing the O2-sensor, the power steering fluid, the radiator hoses & thermostat and the accessory belt.

21st century KITT dashboard

Every since I started publishing videos of my KITT replica Trans Am, people have been asking questions about the iconic, yet still missing KITT dashboard. Although I’ve decided not to install it in my car and keep the dashboard stock, I want to share with you why and what alternatives I see for a possible 21st century KITT dashboard. Might give some inspiration to the film makers, should they turn the many reboot rumors into reality.
