    My Cousin Vinny's Factory Five Cobra build

    Worked this weekend on my Cousin Vinny's New delivery of a Factory Five AC Cobra (MK4).

    Website:
    MK4 Roadster - Factory Five RacingFactory Five Racing
    He upgraded to the independant rear suspension and WIllwood brakes along with the 5 speed. Color will be Silver with black stipes.

    The Kit is really easy and it is nice working on a car where you do not get dirty ! We installed the rear end, steering rack, shocks and brakes. Up next is fuel lines, brake lines pedal boxes and sheet metal.

    Sorry that the pics are not better.

    What's a realistic estimate on hours to build one? 400-500 hours?

    It should take less than three hours. About an hour searching online for a used one, an hour talking to the seller and an hour to work out payment details. Lol
