    I was actually just reading through your build thread and saw that you had them ceramic coated. Can I ask where you got them done and if that has held up? Any regrets there? I've read about jet-hot, but they are located far from me and I'm wondering if a local place using cerakote will be just as good.
    Thanks! -David
    I had them coated at a place in Atlanta area. Have held up just fine. No regrets with the coating. I took some decibel readings when I first put them in. I really need to take some more for comparison. I think I will do that.

    Finished the 911 Project. Whitby did a great job on paint for me again!

    Congratulations, Scott. I enjoyed watching the 911 go together on Instagram. I thought building a FFR from the ground up was a challenge but stripping down a 41 year old car and putting it back together, better than before is a huge accomplishment. Countless people have the big dream but get stalled or discouraged and end up with garage full of parts. Your organization and honesty about budget and time should help many people who might consider such a project. I know you are proud and you should be.

    Ill keep the instagram content coming. I want to do another project just not quite sure what yet. Honestly a little burnt out right now so will take some time off and Im sure I have a couple months of tweaking on the 911 still.

    First thing I need to accomplish is a second lift in my upstairs garage so I can free up my workshop space!

    Continuing to enjoy the Cobra. Passed 9000 miles the other day.
    Also continuing to enjoy building things. I think I like building as much as driving. I have my next project lined up. The garages are getting full. First order of business was to create an additional parking spot so I can free up my workshop. Added another 4 post lift to the upstairs garage. Will move the old 911 upstairs and have an opening in my shop space.



    My next project is a 1973 Datsun 240z. This is one of my best friends cars. It was actually his dads. It has been in some sort of state of restoration since 2001! He simply does not have the money to pay somebody labor rates to finish it. The paint and body is done. I am going to finish getting it all back together for him for whatever the reamaining parts cost. I know nothing about these cars so it should be fun. At some point they put a V8 in it. This works out good for both of us because he can finally get his car done for cheap and I can help my buddy out and have something to work on without it costing me anything. That way I can save and continue to look for my next real project. He lives out of state from me. Hoping to have it down here next week to get started.

    Scott,
    Nice cars. I am shopping for a drive on lift. Do you have any advice for getting a good deal on price and delivery?
    I have a swing arm, but need some parking room and like a drive on for easier access.

    I am very pleased with Bendpak. They will deliver for free but you have to get it off the truck yourself which is tricky if you dont have a large forklift. I elected to have them sent to a shipping depot and had a buddy with a trailer help me pick it up.

    Scott,

    My cousin has a 260-Z that would be a good donor if you need parts.
    He also has an extra engine out of a 240 with Weber Side Drafts and 5-Speed out of a 280-ZX that he'd like to sell.
    The car and extra driveline are both located in Lafayette Louisiana.
    Let me know if these items might be of interest to you.

    Steve

    PS: I love these cars, especially when properly stuffed with a SBC, but we all know I love anything that is improperly stuffed with a SBC.

    Passed 10,000 miles on the Cobra yesterday. Running great. Very few issues. Was having a little grinding on the 4th to 3rd downshift intermittently. Changed the fluid and hasnít happened again so hopefully that is not an issue. We will see. Continuing to add cars to the garage so Iím not putting as many miles on as I used to but still really enjoying it when I get out. Can usually find about 1 day a week through the winter to drive it a little.



    Had to abort on the Z project I previously posted about. My friend just didnít have the money to make it happen.

    I have gone rougue and bought a Ď67 Camaro I am going to resto mod with a roadster shop chassis, rear wheel tubs, crate LS3 / T56 drivetrain. Will start a build thread somewhere. Will post when I do and as always you can see lots of coverage of the build in my Instagram daily story @scottsrides

    My goal for this build was to get a car that didnít need paint and body. This one is quite nice. Paid up for entry cost but figure I will save it on paint and body cost as I still have no desire to do that part myself.



    Still a Ford guy at heart that just happens to own a Camaro!

    Scott,

    We have an "other cars build thread" forum as part of the off-topic forum:
    https://thefactoryfiveforum.com/foru...-Build-Threads

    The posts don't show up on the home page but there are no other restrictions. Feel free to post your Camaro resto-build there if you want.

    Nice Scott. I still miss my 67 sometimes, but I'm sure she's sunning on the beach somewhere in France. Look forward to seeing project.

    Been over a year since I updated this thread. Wanted to check in and say hello to everyone.
    Still enjoying the Cobra. Luckily the weather is agreeing over the winter and I can continue to get it out on a drive every couple weeks or so.

    Pluggin away on the Camaro project. Taking me a long time. Probably have spread myself a little thin with to many cars and other obligations are getting in the way. I am making some progress though.
    1967 Camaro, Roadster Shop full chassis , LS3 and T-56
    Really enjoying this build but it is complex for me. I am basically just using the original body and some interior parts and everything else is brand new. Should be a real nice driver when complete. Lots more things needing a custom solution than I have experienced before. I seem to go to the shop with the intention of working on something and end up branching off on multiple tangents and finally circling back to the intended topic months later! haha
    Hoping to fire this thing up this summer sometime but who knows.
    Luckily for me the FFR community continue to be awesome. Paul (EdwardB) who helps us all so much just happens to have an LS3 in his truck build so I have been the lucky benefactor of his stellar advice numerous times on this project as well. Here are a few pics, my trusty pup likes trying to help. Sadly we lost her sister last year but other than that we are doing great.

    Nice setup.

    I'm interested in what kind of wheels/tires you have on the frame so that it works on your wheel dollies. Looks like a good idea.

    I guess you could even use temporary spares if the bolt pattern lines up?

    Back with another update. Hope everyone is doing well.
    Passed 11,000 miles on the Cobra. Still really enjoying it. I am finding now that I have too many cars I am not driving it as much as I used to. However that seems to make me enjoy the Cobra even more when I do get to drive it. I usually take it on a 15-20 mile drive once every week or two. Everything is continuing to work great. Really pleased now about 7 years later that I went with the Coyote. My thought of just having the reliability to jump in and go when I want is working out great.

    I did finish my '67 Camaro build and have bout 500 miles on it. Really loving it as well. Has a Roadster shop full chassis, mini tubbed rear end, LS3 with 495hp, T56 and a Ford 9" rear end. Here are a few pics.

    Really glad you've shared your journey and love of cars. I'm still in the dreaming/planning stage. However, I have to tell you I have a pic of your Cobra on the desktop background of my computer at work. Some of my coworkers are pretty sure I've gone off the deep end talking about these beastly little dream machines.

    Excellent looking Camaro!

    Actually, about a year ago I told the missus I wanted to build a car. She was thinking our place would end up looking like the local muffler/tire shop and was a just "a bit negative". So I didn't say anything else for about a week. Then I showed her a pic of your car. Mind changed, all aboard, when can I take a ride in it... Thank You!

    Scott makes it here occasionally. But I can answer your question. They're from https://www.billetbadges.com/index. I used them on a build as well. Very high quality. But take some time and not cheap. I understand there's some limitation on what they've done in the past for our builds because of trademark/copyright concerns. These are the ones they did for me. But pretty sure they wouldn't make them exactly the same now.
