    Pretty freakin sweet.....we're gonna need some more details on this.

    FANTASTIC! I have two dream themes - Masters Of The Universe & original Knight Rider...this has been been beautifully executed! The integration of KIT into the playfield is world class. Congrats!!
    Cheers Rod

    Love it! The world was missing a Knight Rider pinball for sure.

    #7 3 years ago

    Wow wow wow! This is incredible! Love the lighting effects! Congrats on an absolute grand slam re-theme!

    Thanks for the comments! This is a 'worn to the wood' firepower 2 re-theme. The game play is unchanged other than reworking the lower vertical scoring lights into the Kitt voice display. I used mp3 triggers for the sounds, and built the backbox scanner light from scratch using a cheap Chinese controller.

    I love Firepower 2. This is just that much better.

    #10 3 years ago

    I decided to use this title because it seems to get no love online, but it is a fun game! Plus it's from 1983, during the shows run, so I worked the williams logos into it so it would feel like it was an actual released game.

    Awesome! How do the mp3 triggers work?

    #13 3 years ago

    very nice work

    #14 3 years ago

    Congrats in a BIG way on this!!! Love the carbon fiber look.

    The mp3 triggers are fairly simple. You load files on a micro SD card and assign them to each trigger.

    Best Retheme Ever!

    This is awesome!!! I'll take one!

    #18 3 years ago

    Wow that looks and sounds fantastic! Well done!

    What technique did you use to print the playfield art? I'm planning a retheme as well and trying to decide if I want to do the playfield overlay with clear vinyl (would require painting most of playfield white) or white backed vinyl (requires cutting out the insert after printing to let light shine through).

    I used adhesive vinyl laser printer paper, and individually made each decal. PAIN IN THE BUTT! Plus I had issues with them laying down under the clear. If I do another re-theme I will learn how to do a full scan and make one large overlay.

    Holy $#:* that is so cool!!!

    #21 3 years ago

    Awesome!!!

    #22 3 years ago

    That is my dream theme and you did an amazing job with it

    #23 3 years ago

    When can I pre-order one? Very well done!! Thanks for showing it.

    #24 3 years ago

    Fun idea executed very nicely!! I adored this show growing up......was surprised to see KIT lights strobing across the bottom of the back box....in a good way of course

    I could listen to that theme song all day. Good stuff man!!!!

    So is this just a PinSound board?

    #26 3 years ago

    Very nicely done!

    #27 3 years ago

    That is freak'n awesome.

    No, go to robertsonics.com
    They are fairly cheap, and easy for someone who is not a computer wiz.

    #30 3 years ago

    That rocks man.

    #31 3 years ago

    Amazing!!! Let me know when you want to sell it!

    #32 3 years ago

    You're questioning whether or not he did an awesome job?

    There is an edit button if that's not what you meant.

    #35 3 years ago

    OMG when the light came on in the toy car I almost shite myself--WONDERFUL!!!

    #36 3 years ago

    Great Job. Awesome theme. Can't believe they didn't do one back then! Why?!! I still have my original KITT talking car toy and Michael Knight action figure from Christmas 1984. Love it.

    Love what you did with the sounds and the kitt display built into playfield. Spot on. Great job overall! Theme is perfect for pinball.

    Sorry man i was posting from my phone, you can put the pitchfork away now, just a mistake, Knight Rider was one of my favorite shows as a kid. One of these days I would like to find a beat up pin and do something like this.

    #40 3 years ago

    Nice I have a Firepower II and is one of my favorite games. I would like to see what happens when you make the loop of the spinner and the ball makes it back around through the gate when all of the lights go out. What sounds and do you have happening for it?

    #41 3 years ago

    Very well done! One of my favorite shows as a kid.
