Hello everyone. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a new 65 Coupe-R build. Some of you might have seen me trolling around and asking a bunch of questions. I'm working on figuring out the last few questions to make sure the R will work for how I plan to use it. I'm planning on doing some track days and a little driving around town. Planning on doing a Coyote / T56 build. Not new to these things. I have a Cobra replica from another brand that I've had for 19 years. Used to do a lot of track days with it.

Any advice and thoughts are appreciated. Really interested in people's experience with the R version and all of the spoilers and such (both on and off the track). I'm open to building the regular version and using it as a track car, but I really like the R version with the added safety and aero options.

I took it to WhitbyMotorcars.com They do a lot of FFR's great work but long wait times. Right now they are quoting 18-24 months. My friend/neighbor had his done there several years ago and it still looks great.

18-24 months! Business is good!

They also can paint your body while you are building your car which can shorten the wait time a lot.

Ah, great pro tip! I was figuring that I had to wait until I got the body mounted and lined up the various panels and doors before paint (which I assume came later in the process).
