I have an update on my Killer KARR project. Thanks again for letting me show off my project here...
First a short rant...
I have this project posted on Knight Foundation, Knight Rider Online & Knight Rider Revolution, all Knight Rider Forums. Been on the Foundation since it's opening. Which is since like 03'/04', been in the Knight Rider community since like 02', joined the other 2 recently, anyhow. SAVAGE CIRCUITS members are the ONLY ONES WHO EVEN HAVE ENOUGH DECENCY TO RESPOND! So THANK YOU to ALL for the replies. At least I feel wanted around here!
Without further ranting here's my updates. My stock dash wiring was shot, so a friend found a new harness, it's from a 90/91 but I've been making it work for me.My wife Brandi doing a couple of soldering mods to the new harness.
The dash with all electric instruments. I've decided to swap in an 82-84 dash into my 89. Main reason is as my rear shot shows, I've added the rear wiper to my non-defog hatch, so needed to make my rear wiper switch fit the look of rest of the dash, and I'll be using the stock defog switch as a replacement driving lamp switch, I gotta make a control circuit for it before it will work for me.Got my 82-84 dash core installed in KARR with the 89 instrument cluster and new wiring harness. I think it's going to look pretty good. Then got the fiberglass dash installed into place. I still have some wiring to finish, but it's getting there.
Though I have a rant on this. My new dash harness, I tried looking up info on the bulkhead connector, which connects the dash harness to main harness in engine bay, the diagrams I found don't even match the harness I have. Thanks to GM for making them for the most part Pin for Pin matching, only like 1 or 2 Pins I gotta figure out. So if my diagrams I had are for Firebirds as they are suppose to be, what ones??? Cause they ain't for US versions and Camaros have different setups, no headlight doors for starters. LOL Canadian cars maybe or some other Pontiac with V8's & TBI/TPI systems?? At least I'm going to get the dash harness in and connected up soon.
