Complete kit or stages / bench seat?

What are the advantages of buying the complete kit vs buy-in in stages??
Is the bench seat in the Gen 2 adjustable or is it bolt to fit your leg length??
Thanks in advance,
Bob McLaughlin

Biggest thing to remember is that unless you pick it up each time you will pay for shipping twice.
As for the seat you can move it forward and back a little but not a ton.

When I buy my 33, I will buy the whole thing. I get the idea of separating the chassis and the body to give time to save up and all, but I do not want to pay for shipping each time. I also would only buy a complete kit and things change and builds take longer than expected. I am sure that Factory Five is in good financial shape and all, but if something happens or they stop making the hot rod, you do not want to be stuck with just a chassis.

I bought mine in stages. If I had to do it over again I would definitely purchase the whole kit. The shipping is a factor but there are things in stage 2 you will want to fit and not have. The radiator and steering wheel are just two.

Get the whole kit. It doesn't take long to assemble the stage one and then you are waiting for stage two.

Buy the whole kit at the same time - lots of builders advocating starting with the body fitment first and I wish I took this approach as well....

If you get the whole kit you will have lots of things to do while waiting for FFR to work down the back order list!
