Tutorial Intro - setting up a CO2 sprayer system

Postby NotchbackKITT » Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:58 am

Hey gang - one of the most frustrating aspects about this hobby for me is why so few owners are willing to share the details behind some of their 'cooler' KITT gadgets. We've all seen the end results before - the oil slick, the wireless touch device setup that controls everything in the car, the upper console buttons that start the car or move the windows, etc. But never do we really get a chance to see HOW these things have come together. And when asked for advice on how something was accomplished, some hobbyists for one reason or another just don't tell you. Today I'm hoping to break through this barrier and start a new trend.

My KITT has many of those cooler features installed...including some things that aren't very common. In the case of this post, I have a CO2 sprayer system that shoots a cloud of CO2 gas out the front of KITT, just like he did in the show. Given the lack of knowledge about gas systems and the lack of information available online, this was very difficult for me to figure out. But I did it...and my hope is by sharing a basic tutorial as to how I set this up, others will be able to create the same effects with their own replicas.

This is hopefully just one of many vids to come folks. I've got several more vids I could take if there is genuine interest. But more importantly, I hope my vid inspires others to do this same with their own replicas. Enjoy!

Cool!

I noticed the Alston sub frame connectors below too :)

If you added Red LED's for nightime display, they would light the mist & you would scare
some people :)
