    New builder from Ohio.

    Hello everyone. I just purchased an '35 truck kit and a SBC, F.I., 700R4. My goal is to build a cruiser that I can throw a couple of bags in the back and drive to California, or anywhere else for that matter.

    I'm a senior member I suppose, at 76, but I feel I have at least one good build left. I built a Vans RV12 LSA aircraft about 9 years ago. The success with that kit is why I chose Factory Five. The Vans kit was complete; every nut, bolt, washer, rivet (13158 of 'em), engine, prop and instrumentation, all designed to fit and function together. All I had to add was oil, coolant and paint. After 420 hours of flight time, the aircraft still operates perfectly. I think Factory Five implies the same performance. (If I do my part correctly).

    I retired from the GM Milford, MI proving grounds after 36 years and have had cars in my blood all my life. I am very excited about this build and hope to avail myself of the vast collective knowledge and experience reflected in the forum. Maybe I might be able to add a tiny bit too.

    Hi Frank Welcome to The Forum
    When are you expecting to receive your kit and what part of Ohio are you from?

    Thanks for the welcome. FF says kit arrival around the first part of December. I'm located in Lorain. I am attending the build class this weekend in Howell, MI. I feel like a kid at Christmas. Thanks, FF.

    You are gonna have the best time at the class. The instructors I had were real good I learned a lot. Well worth the money. Is FFR going to honor the build school discount on your kit? because you bought the kit before you went to the school.
