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 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.
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.
In this video I’m going through the installation of my new radio, the inside, as well as engine bay speakers and how I connected the radio with the scanner control box together using a sound mixer. In short, the sound system. Check it out! 🙂
In this video I’m going through the body and paintwork that went into my KITT Trans Am. It’s not one of my typical how to videos, but more like the story of how everything came together, what to pay attention to and what to look for when searching the right body and paintshop. I’m also giving you some tips regarding the installation of new T-Top seals.
