  1. Re-thinking this car

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I am still in the planning stages, but have two observations. 1. I was surprised by how raw, noisy and unrefined these cars were when I got my first ride in one. I have since read the future owner thread and have a better idea what I am getting into. I am not dissuaded in the least by this...
  2. Battery: Trunk or Engine Area

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Thanks for the insight. My planned build is a simple 302, but I am toying with the idea of adding a centrifugal blower. I can imagine the extra belt for the blower and even the intake tubing would be in the same spaces as the old and new Breeze mounts. I have plenty of time to work out the...
  3. Battery: Trunk or Engine Area

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I like the Breeze front mount kit as it seems reasonable that mounting in the front is an advantage. I am curious why they moved it from on top of the passenger footbox to in front of the engine (I think they did this between Mk2 & M3). I understand space is at a premium, but what makes the...

  5. Rebuilding a T5

    Factory Five Roadsters
    What a timely thread. I am still a few years away from ordering my kit and just recently picked up my donor and have been driving it regularly. I have trouble with grinding while shifting into 3rd when power shifting. Doesn't happen when shifting slowly and/or deliberately. I am starting...
  6. Eleven Year Old with a Plan!

    He isn't married, but I do know his partner. Not sure that does me any good. As to build school, they are full until late this year. They also said an 11 year old can't attend, minimum age is 12. That puts us at next summer before we can attend. Seems like I have plenty of time to research...

    Thank you SlowLeak for not only answering all my stupid questions about the kit/process, but even showing me your awesome build and the rip through the countryside :-)) Now that I know the build school is only the other side of Lake Michigan, I have inquired about attending with my son. I...
