Agreed with all of you but really want to call out the vendor support. Mark (Breeze), Mike Forte, Gordon, Whitby's, Tangent, Darkwater, Enzo, Russ Thompson.... All these vendors build quality products that are specifically designed to plug into an FFR. This is a beautiful thing and is something that sets the FFR approach apart from the others. I too have seen underwhelming kit cars and what I noticed is that they often had a frankenstein look about them with mismatched parts that just didn't look right together. The beauty of the vendor support we have is that these upgrades not only work right but they look right. It makes the finished product so much more enjoyable.
The master ASE mechanic who signed off on my DMV papers was extremely impressed by the fit and finish of the final product. He had actually owned an original but noted that everything on my kit from the hydraulic clutch slave (from Fortes) to the interior (Gordon, Russ and Whitby's) to the engine compartment and brakes/suspension (Breeze and Whitby's), just fit together perfectly.
I believe that these vendors are a HUGE reason why perceptions are changing.
