Interchangeable parts are parts that are, for practical purposes, identical. They are made to specifications that ensure that they are so nearly identical that they will fit into any assembly of the same type without any custom fitting.
One year of searching for the exterior parts to complete KITT is at an end. Fortunately, I was able to locate all original parts as well as an incredible deal on a front bumper.
I know some people don’t have salvaged 240’s in their area. I’ve fortunately come across six of them. Anyone serious about getting any small parts shipped, feel free to email me.
KITT will take a while to complete and just like the 240SX, I’ve broken the project down into phases with the functionality and the exterior being first because it requires fewer parts to modify and takes the least amount of time.
The first thing I did after getting the hatchback home was a walk-around. I pretty much had an idea of what I was going to modify, but I had no clue what I was going to find once I started disassembling it. This is where I learned the difference between the “want list” and the “reality list”.
