Installing KARR's New Gauges

posted Sep 17, 2017, 4:13 PM by Jonathan Imberi   [ updated Sep 17, 2017, 5:00 PM ]


I wanted to give KARR's instrument panel a little more of a Knight Rider look, so I purchased a set of digital Fiero gauges from Tom's Digital Electronics. I had them custom built to look a bit more like the bar graphs seen on Knight Rider. They took six weeks to build, but they arrived a few days ago and I couldn't wait to get them installed. As you can see KARR was just waiting to pull into the garage too!

The tachometer, water temperature, and fuel gauges all use the stock connectors so there was nothing to wire. The speedometer wires needed to be spliced into the existing speedometer connector which was still needed to power the odometer.

Time To Fly The Flag

posted Jul 7, 2017, 8:11 PM by Jonathan Imberi


When Joe Huth, of the Knight Rider Historians, announced that he was making a F.L.A.G. flag...I knew I had to have one! Joe's stuff is always top notch and his attention to the smallest detail means you will end up with the most authentic prop. This flag is the proud symbol of Knight Industries and the Foundation for Law And Government as seen in Knight Rider.

Here is Joe's description:

NOW ACCEPTING ORDERS for the “F.L.A.G. flag”! Modeled after the flag seen flying high above the Foundation for Law and Government in “Goliath Returns”, our large 3’ x 5’ waterproof flag is double-sided and made of a high quality knitted polyester. The back side features the Knight chess piece in reverse. Grommets at all four corners allow you the flexibility to mount it to a flagpole, hang it on a wall, or stretch it between two posts! Perfect for car shows, garages and man caves.
We are offering this flag in two color schemes – black graphics/yellow background (similar to the “Goliath Returns” flag) and a more traditional gold graphics/black background. We had a limited run of 100 made (50 of each style), and when they are gone – they are GONE! 

I ordered the black and gold color scheme. Mine arrived today and I couldn't wait to get it open!

Thanks to my friend Kevin Knight, I was able to find new old stock non-defrost, screen-accurate back glass from Ira Turner with Glass Seekers.  He actually had a few available!  This is 30+ year old back glass!

A Day In The Garage

Sara and I are back to feeling ambitious again so we tackled a bunch of projects this weekend. After church this morning we fixed a rock chip in the windshield of the Freestyle, then rolled KITT out of the garage so he could enjoy the sun.

With KITT out of the garage we swept and vacuumed the tiles on KITT's side of the garage. When we cleaned and restored the tiles last week we couldn't get to this side with KITT in the garage.

Here you can see the scuff marks the auto dollies left on the tiles when we moved KITT the first time after installing the flooring.

We had some bubbling issues in the tile in this corner and needed to remove the shelving so we could get to the problem.  We cut the tiles down a little more to allow them room to expand during temperature changes.

We cleaned the tiles in the picture above as well as on KITT's side of the garage.  While the cleaner dried, we went to visit our two favorite dogs.  While we were visiting Kayser and Knox, Troy left a package for us in front of our garage.  When we got back home, we moved it inside the garage.  The Freestyle is going to have to sit outside tonight.

Shifting Things Back Into Gear

posted May 30, 2017, 7:23 PM by Jonathan Imberi   [ updated Jun 4, 2017, 3:21 PM ]


As more and more vendors seem to be leaving the Knight Rider conversion parts scene, I have been keeping my eye out for last chance deals. That's exactly what I was able to score with Billy Chingas's billet aluminum black anodized shifter knob! He has painstakingly recreated the iconic shift knob from the '82 Firebirds, but in aluminum. I managed to get one of the last three he had. :)

It arrived today and I couldn't wait to get it opened!

Wait, I Never Finished This?!

I decided this weekend to dive back into working on KITT, and realized I never finished the taillight harness.  Just for curiosity sake I pulled up the blog post where I started on the taillight harness, and realized it was in July of 2012.  That's insane!  I really need to get back to work on this project!

I started this weekend by putting a new section of wire loom on the section of the harness I had already cleaned and restored.

With the loom in place, I just had these last two sections to restore.

I started by peeling off the old electrical tape on the junction just before the grommet.  You can see how much dirt was still trapped in there.

This plug had a zip tie with a pin style mount.  I am not sure if this means the original clip broke off, but I will have to deal with this when it gets reinstalled.

I removed the smaller loom from the upper section.  The wires seemed to be in good shape, just needed to be cleaned.

I decided before I got too far on wrapping the new section I should probably tape off the junctions coming out of the loom on the main section.  I bought 3M Super 33+ tape as it is supposed to be the best stuff to use for wiring harnesses.  It does not unravel and the adhesive does not get gummy.

I'm not sure why someone used duct tape, but the connection underneath was clean and solid and looked factory. I taped the connection properly and then retaped this section of the harness.

On the way back out to the garage with the clean harness, our neighbor saw us with it and commented, "Oh, the new wiring harness came in!"  I thought that was quite the compliment considering this is a restored original harness.

The next thing that needed to be done was to clean the two side marker light sockets.  I used the same vinegar/salt (acidic) solution as before to eat away at any corrosion.

While the side marker light sockets soaked in the acidic solution, I used contact cleaner on the two connectors that had not been previously cleaned.  Both of these connectors were in great shape to start with.

I followed that up with DeoxIT D5, which is a cleaner and protector for connections.

Time to reassemble the sockets!  I am not adding dielectric grease at this time.  I want to do more research to find out how much is necessary.  These were packed full and being an insulator, electrically that does not make sense to me.

New Garage Floor

I had been looking for a way to improve on our cracking and salt-eaten cement garage floor for a while.  I saw some Craftsman garage tiles at Sears a couple of years ago, and had been thinking about them ever since.  Sears no longer sells the Craftsman tiles I first saw, but I was able to find an online source for PVC garage tiles.  

These are twenty inch square interlocking tiles.  They sit on top of the floor and require no adhesive.  They are water, chemical, and solvent resistant.  I chose black tiles with a leather-like look.

The tiles are advertised and reviewed as being used in a garage, and able to withstand high loads and the use of a floor jack.  We noticed as we were putting the garage back together after installing them that the tiles scuffed and scratched incredibly easily.  Also when rolling KITT back on his auto dollies, the auto dollies left indents in the tiles, and scuffs as they rolled.  This was not the type of durability I was expecting, or that was indicated by the company we bought them from.  I contacted the company and worked directly with the manufacturer, who eventually gave us a partial refund.  

On the plus side, the tiles are extremely comfortable to walk and kneel on.  Liquids clean up easily, and I am hoping it will be easier now to push out water and salt in the winter.

I wish I would have bought a more durable garage tile (ie a commercial-grade tile), but I am happy with these for what I ended up paying for them after the partial refund.

I found a product line called Rejuvenate at Menards that is made for vinyl floors.  I bought both the cleaner and the restorer.  We applied them today.

You can see the difference in the tiles below.  This is the same tile, dry in both pictures.  The Rejuvenate cleaner and restorer are easy to use and I highly recommend them. :)
