Four Year Anniversary

This anniversary feels a little bitter-sweet. It is always exciting to celebrate another year gone by for the project, but this time I feel like "Man, has it really been four years?".
Setbacks just happen with any project, I know that, but I think I let the painting fiasco affect me more than it should. I lost motivation as a result. I distracted myself by getting caught up in other things and just did not put a priority on KITT. I tried several times to reestablish the pace Sara and I had at the start of the project, but so far it just hasn't been the same.

Right now I am all fired up about starting on the wiring, and with the added 'kick in the butt' this anniversary delivers I have something to announce: 

I am back in the game! :D

We got KITT's 1983 Pontiac Trans Am body four years ago today. Here is what he looked like on January 14, 2012...

Aside from marking four years for Project: K.I.T.T., today holds another special significance for me. 18 years ago today I met my soul mate. She didn't know then that I had a crazy dream of taking her everywhere in KITT someday, but I can tell you this - the project would have never have gotten this far without her. I love you Sara!
