  1. Making a street car in to a drag car?

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I totally missed this thread - great reading! Now you just need summer back to test it out. Looks like so much fun! Geoff
  2. Finally Getting It Ready For Paint

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Bill - over the years your craftsmanship has always amazed me. You fight your way through challenges and come out with an amazing work of art. This build is no different. I would like to look through your GT40 build again. Do you still have that available? Thanks, Geoff
  3. Video: Second Registered/Legal Drive

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Had that turned up on my sound system - sounds awesome! Really like the close ratio of the 6 speed. Very nice! Geoff
  4. Holley Sniper set up

    Fuel Injection Pit Road
    I have been running the sniper (with dual sync) on a dual plane rpm intake for a full season. Works fine - the only change I needed to make was adding a 4 hole spacer under the sniper. It had belt like squeal from the intake. I researched it and found it was fairly common. The fix needs to be...
  5. Question for Premium Top Owners

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Good tip! Another one for the rear window - don't just unzip the top of the rear window and leave it with the velcro attached on the sides. I did that, and at first glance it looks like it opens a few inches at the center/top of the window for partial ventilation. I was all proud of myself...
  6. Question for Premium Top Owners

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Yes! I have only had my top for this driving season but can say the quarter windows are a must. They really help with lane changes. I use the rear window zipper feature frequently for ventilation. It is an amazing piece of engineering.I hit a lot of heavy rain touring Montana/Yellowstone and...
  7. Mk 1 SAI mods

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I was emailing with Whitby Motors about 3 weeks ago. They were doing another run on the SAI kit. Should be ready end of September is what I was told. Did you hear different?

    I don't have one, but wanted to say thanks for helping him out. Very cool! Geoff
  9. Holley Sniper EFI experience wanted

    FFR Type 65 Coupe
    I just got back today from a 3000+ mile road trip from Alberta through BC, into Montana and Yellowstone, over to Idaho, and then back home. I run a 5.0L from an 89 mustang that's an honest 350hp/400tq. I installed the sniper system and dual sync over the winter. First CPU packed it in this...
  10. Softening ride

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I can see your predicament and why you would want to avoid it... Are 15" wheels an option? I am not sure of selection but the sidewall height would help decrease the harshness of the ride. Just a thought Geoff
  11. Self inflicted issues

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Very nice! I love the look of the stacks. Geoff
  12. Self inflicted issues

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I hope you solve it! Until then, I would love to see more pics of your engine. The teaser shot you included looks great! Geoff
  13. Spring Startup

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Your car looks and sounds awesome! I watched a couple of your videos on YouTube - great work! I admire your craftsman skills! We have a similar winter season here. Its torture waiting for the driving season! Geoff
  14. Tire recommendations?

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I did the swap from 10 year old Sumi's to the G2's. I probably could have gone to an old plastic bag and would have had better traction than the old Sumi's, but I really like the G2's. They have better traction in all areas than the Sumi's ever did. I looked around at all brands and found that...
  15. EFI throttle cable swap out question

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I did that swap this winter. I created some of my own challenge (I am my own worst enemy sometimes) as I had changed the stock system to front pull cable. I did not like the sharp "S" that the rear pull required the throttle cable to be in. But when I installed the Sniper everything was...
  16. Trans Tunnel Cover

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I made mine removable and have used it for transmission removal, shifter change, transmission oil change access, and wiring access. I am sure there are many different ways to do each of those. Just my experience from wrenching over the years - I have never been sorry making something...
  17. Found my old Fox Mustang!

    Off Topic Discussions
    Great project! All that practice building your FFR is now paying off - another donor to strip! Have fun! Geoff
  18. Want to Buy: Mirror Pedestal

    Parts For Sale / Wanted
    I have a spun aluminum Raydot mirror and I have misplaced the round pedestal or foot of the mirror. You can see it on the Finishline link: https://www.finishlineaccessories.com/p-291-raydot-mirror-spun-aluminum-mr-300.aspx Thought I would check and see if anyone has damaged mirror that still...
