I know alot of you guys have showed interest in building one of these. My
Mk4 base kit came in today. I plan on photo documenting the whole process, and will update pics as much as I can.

Some specs-
Factory Five MK4 base kit
347 stroker/ T5
4 wheel disks with Koni coilovers on the corners
Paint- undecided
Wheels/tires- FFR 15" Halibrand style with Goodyear "Billboard" tires

Nice! I will probably be in the minority, but I like them without stripes. Looking forward to your progress.

Thanks, I was like a kid in a candy store today going through all the parts boxes.
As far as paint Im torn between solid black, or a silver/light silver stripe.

Black cars look great, but hard as hell to take care of. Plus, that car is already going to be hot as hell during the summer, the black will only make it worse. So I'd go with the silver personally.

Are you doing single or double bars?

Smith gauges I hope too, drives me nuts when I see Autometer stuff in those cars.

Im going with the single chrome rollbar. As far as the gauges I would love to run the smiths, but they are a bit out of my budget for now. I am going with autometers, but the Cobra style. It still has the reverse read speedo, and look just about like the smiths.

That doesn't look too bad I suppose. At least they look somewhat original type style. Are going to with the correct style wood steering wheel as well?

Preach on, dude. There's absolutely no debating that decision.

Awesome! Can't wait to see progress. And silver would be my choice.

I can't argue much with the "arrest me" red, but all black with a chrome roll bar would definitely give me a chubby.:wink1:

Know anything about that black car?

Looks great, stance/wheels are perfect. What kit is it? Wheels offset/style of the lips makes it in my eyes.
