This is the KITT bed I built for my son. It is 9 feet long and made from 19mm plywood sheets. The scanner light is functional and is operated using an old PC power supply and is switched on using a key switch on either door.

Very nice. Now you have to sit in it and watch all the old Knight Rider re-runs!

Thanks Guys. We have watched many Knight Rider re-runs on this bed, I have even heard my son talking to Kitt when he should have been going to sleep.

I would love to build this for my stepson – are there any basic dimensions or drawings I could work off of? I will be starting to build a full-size Trans Am replica car soon, but this would be a great side project over the winter. Thank you.

I think I still have the side profile ‘cut out’ on my computer somewhere. I also have more photos of the build up process. I will see what I can dig up for you.

Hi. I have searched my PC and I have found the side profile drawing I used. when printed it was 1:1 scale, quite a large file. Let me know your email address and I will see if I can email it to you.
