I have ordered a Roadster to be built on May 7 then shipped to me. I live in Rosedale BC. Just sold my 46 ford so need a new project. Going with a 427 with five speed and IRS

Hey Grassy, are you using Stewart for transporting to the border?
Have you ordered a car yet?
I am getting the crate and probably Stewart trucking and then there is a frieght company out of Coquitlam that will bring it the rest of the way. My build date is May 7

Ues have ordered the car, the engine, and the completion parts, my production date is a ways out yet, 1 Oct, I am using Stewart, to the boarder, then driving accross to get it hopefully with a u haul trailer. Am not having it crated, saved 1500 US.

I guess I could send it to Bellingham also. I thought the crate might be money well spent to keep everything together and protected. I have not ordered the completion kit yet and am building the engine locally. I am trying to soarce all the other stuff myself. Looks like it is hard to find Halibrand wheels.

As far as wheels go, I stuck with tje ones from factory Five, seemed like a food deal, nit sure if thet come up for sale often, so I just grabbed them from Ryan Valin with the rest of the completion parts

Same to you,
I was talking with a couple other folks and their kits are ready for delivery, but they have been waiting for the TC letter, also others have been waiting for Parts still from FF, since Aug. Good thing I am a long ways out yet, looks like build time-line is going to be parts supply dependant for allot of folks.
