Here is a recent screen snapshot of how the optional clock screen that features the Com-Link watch face that Michael wore in the show that allowed him to communicate with K.I.T.T. over long distances. This screen has quick access links to popular screens like the Audio record screen, Home Screen, Auto Doors - Windows - Hatch, Music Player, Surveillance Mode Screen.... I may change them but for now I figure those will be the ones most used until we add more features. ;)
A little work in progress of another optional screen for our Knight Rider dash software. This is a fairly accurate digital clock resembling Michael's Com-Link watch. It currently displays a 24 hour or military time clock, I may change that. I need to add an AM / PM display but it's coming along nice as a little extra for our dash software ;)

I got my frame for the 2 TV dash yesterday from Knightscan. lol I think he might have been in a rush to deliver as I had to clean paper towel off of the face that had stuck to the surface, my guess is that he packed it before the paint had fully dried. No biggie as I have to strip it down and file the insides of each window flat to match the angled edges of the frame, if I don't then I loose valuable screen viewing real-estate. My fault really, I sort of assumed this particular frame fit five inch LCD screens, it does but only just.

My code guy is going to love this ;) Basically he has most of the code worked out already, I'm just making the GUI look pretty. Soon K.I.T.T. will be able to record audio through external microphones in preset durations as part of his surveillance mode. This will be basically the equivalent of "Hey K.I.T.T. pop is a tape and record this will ya."

This is the work of Michael Hyatt another Knight Rider K.I.T.T. car fan with true "Heart" when I saw this I had to share as this very much speaks volumes about how I feel about the hobby. Even though I am very new to anything automotive, electrical I have always loved that car from the very first time a friend introduced me to the show back in the 80's when it was on TV. I know from being an artist that I am always tweaking and trying to perfect things even if I stop for a while and put things on the back burner they never seem to be truly done in my book and I'm always wanting to tweak them up further.
Kudos goes out to Michael for his brilliant dedication to his Knight Rider Project and for being a true inspiration for those of us like myself who are new to this hobby who love Knight Rider and K.I.T.T. :)
