    Exclamation Kevin's mk4 build thread "Bay Area CALIFORNIA"

    Hello ladies and gentlemen, I was just informed by factory five that my kit is ready for shipping as of this morning 1/12/2018. I thought I would make a post now as I'm highly excited.

    FFR build specs:

    MKIV Roadster base kit
    Powder coated chassis
    3 Link rear suspension
    Coyote power steering rack kit from FFR
    Body cutouts
    Wind Wings
    Sun Visors
    Padded dash with console
    Assembled side Louvers
    Big and tall seat upgrade
    Wilwood big brake kit with black calipers
    Roll bar grommets
    Leather steering wheel
    Wilwood pedal box
    Gps gauge set
    Battery cut off switch
    Roaster cooling package From FFR
    Efi fuel setup from FFR
    Fuel tank setup from FFR
    Ron Francis harness
    Bunch of buttons and switches
    17x9 Halibrands up front
    17x10.5 Halibrands in the back


    "I know I pretty much have a complete package after adding all the optional parts" lol




    Wants:
    FFmetal Battery Box with Optima
    Hood Hinges "breeze"
    Seat mounts "breeze"
    Door panels "where do I get them from?"

    Motor:
    Coyote f150 "already have it"
    Ford Control pack
    Maybe - upgrade valve springs and cams


    Driveline:
    Tremec TKO 600, .64 5th gear already ordered from Mike





    I plan to drive the car as often as possible.. gym,work and close errands so I'm pretty much building the car to drive.


    Any tips or advice on sb100 registration for California kit cars? This is going to be another challenge for me as I'm totally noob to it. I did some google research on it already.





    I have pictures of the car from FFR of it sitting at their loading dock and will post it as soon as I figure out how to post pictures.



    Cheers!

    Hey BayFunk!

    Congrats on the delivery date. I received mine in November and have slowly been chipping away. Check out Herbs post in the Roadster threads for info on panels. I'm over in San Ramon. Where are you located? No help on the registration as I wasn't even preparing to worry about that for another year or so. Long way to go before I get it ready for the road! Have fun and if I can be of help let me know.

    Hey there,

    I'm in Castro Valley. I just completed the sb100 registration of my 818. It went pretty well.

    Welcome! If you are looking for hood hinges, I came across these from one of the site's vendors that are pricey, but pretty cool:

    I had Herb (CobraHerb) make my leather door panels.



    Good luck and have fun!

    Congrats on your kit, you are gonna have a blast. I am in San Jose and finished my Mk4 w/coyote last summer. The SB 100 was pretty straightforward. If possible, a trip to the show at Huntington Beach in April is really worth the time and effort. Edwardb’s Mk4 build thread is also invaluable. I will be helping a buddy with his Type 65 Gen 3 when it arrives next month, as these builds are a lot of fun. Feel free to contact me for any help if needed.

    Thanks I’m highly excited. I’m glad to that I’m alone in the sb100 boat.

    I ordered the EFI fuel system from factory five but in all honestly I don’t even know what it includes as it doesn’t show in the parts website but they did say it’s everythig I need for my setup. Hehe
    Does anyone know what that includes it was about $549 on my invoice

    I also ordered the oem tank option which was $699
