    Wareaglescott's Coyote build thread - INDEX ADDED TO POST #1

    I am going to do this build thread from a beginners perspective. I have absolutely zero experience doing anything like this. There are a lot of excellent build threads by very competent builders. Hopefully one from a beginner will be somewhat beneficial to people unsure if they can do it or not.

    I am Expecting delivery of my MK4 kit next week. Very excited to get started.
    My plan is for a reliable street cruiser. Don't really have any plans to track the car although you never know. I wasn't really planning to order quite yet but wanted to take advantage of the 50% sale on options. I have zero experience with a project of this magnitude. I have always been a car guy but have never built anything. Looking forward to the challenges this project will present. My job as an airline pilot provides me with a nice amount of spare time to devote to this project. I have spent a couple months researching and have learned a ton of information from this forum.

    I am going for somewhat of a non traditional look. I love blue cars, in fact my last 5 have been blue including two I currently own but I wanted to go with something a little different. I am 6'3 and found the high back Kirkey seats fit me the best. Having those led me to think with the seat backs extending above the body I would also like the dual roll bars. I found an artist that does car drawings for a living. I sent him all my ideas and my color thoughts and he drew me up a concept so I could verify I liked the looks of it. Hopefully I can figure out how to insert the picture below. (BTW this guy is amazing with his drawings. I will happily pass on his contact info. Unsure of forum rules about posting it but message me if you want a drawing of your car.)

    My build plan is as follows:
    MK4 complete kit
    IRS
    Coyote
    TKO600

    Options I ordered:
    Powder coated chassis
    body cut outs
    high back kirkey seats
    Coyote power steering kit
    17" Halibrand replica wheels
    Stainless steel front and rear bumpers
    Stainless steel side exhaust
    wind wings
    sun visors
    heater
    Front and rear sway bars
    Dual chrome roll bars
    leather steering wheel
    IRS center section with 3.55
    Front and Rear Wilwood brake option

    My work space consists of a 1 car garage that is 2 cars deep in my basement. Should have adequate space and didn't get in trouble telling the wife I needed her garage space so that was a plus! I have been busy getting most of the tools and supplies I needed. Also built a frame dolley and body buck. I have an additional storage spot for the body buck so I did not do an elevated one to fit over the chassis. Not much else to do at this point but wait for delivery. Interestingly I have already received the front and rear brake kits. Thought that was interesting since I have seen numerous build threads where people were waiting on those for a while.

    There is no way I could do this without all the information I have learned from the forum. I encourage all comments and suggestions to my thread and appreciate everyones input. Thanks
