Build


Left Rear Seat Base

Step 1

Fit the Seat Base Padding under the rounded tabs of the Left Rear Seat Base, as shown:

Step 2

In the same way, fit the Seat Base Frame into the Left Rear Seat Base, again resting underneath the Seat tabs.

The soft PVC of the Seat Base can be spread apart to wrap the tabs and posts around the Frame, as shown:

Step 3

Secure the Seat Base to the Seat Frame with three (3) DP screws.

Do not over-tighten these screws as they can twist the soft PVC of the Seat and make it bulge out of position:

Step 4

Retrieve your Interior Floor Panel assembly from the previous stage. Fit the pin and post on the bottom Seat Base Frame into the matching holes at this location of the Floor Panel, as shown.

The pin at the front bottom of the Seat Frame can bend easily, so take care here when installing this. If needed, you can widen the hole in the Floor Panel with a small pin vise drill or even just by rotating the tip of a hobby knife in there:

Step 5

Secure this Frame into place from below with one (1) BP screw:

While not used very often in the television show, K.I.T.T. did have rear bucket seats. And here, we have started to install them!

    1. I have an order to my build releases – KITT 63-66 is currently 8th in line after the Falcon 7-11, DB5 001-008, LaFerrari 41-48, Ecto-1 119-122, Titanic 75-80, Enterprise 95-98, Iron Man 109-112. However, I plan to go on a building spree over the next 11 days so it may be released sooner than usual.
