It’s time to go back to my channel’s roots and re-introduce the audience to my Yamaha 1100 Drag Star Class bobber conversion.
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 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 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.
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.
In this episode I’m showing you how turned the factory grey interior of my KITT Trans Am into the now beautiful tan interior. Please note that this is one of several different options you can choose and that ultimately the method is up to each individual’s taste and budget.
