Shifting Things Back Into Gear

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.

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.

Garage floor before tile installation:

Knox Rides In KARR

This week KARR had a special passenger. We dog-sat for our friend Jill's Dobermans. KARR took Knox and I to the dog park so Knox could burn off some of her puppy energy.
