Factory Five customer David T. from La Jolla, CA recently finished his Mk4 Roadster and can now call it an award-winning build. At this past weekend’s Factory Five Huntington Beach Cruise-In, David’s Mk4 was awarded ‘Editors’ Choice’ by Hot Rod Magazine!
David visited us here in Wareham, MA back in 2012 to take a tour of the factory and meet the team. Owner Dave Smith was around, and after talking with David in the showroom for a little bit, grabbed the keys to FFR’s red, Ford 5.0L Coyote-powered Mk4 Roadster, and took David for a cruise around town. “I was hooked!” wrote David.
David’s a pediatric dentist by day, so attention to detail is a big part of his life and he didn’t want his Mk4 build to be any different. He spent a little over a year putting his Roadster together using a Ford 5.0L Coyote to power it, Tremec TKO 600, and Moser 8.8 rear. He also went with the Wilwood brakes, wipers, and heater options from Factory Five. David incorporated a few convenience features including heated seats, trunk mounted blue tooth stereo, electronically controlled e-brake, power steering, and power brakes. The paint was done by Jeff “Da Bat” Miller at Miller Customs.
Congratulations on an excellent build, David, and on winning “Editors’ Choice” at the 2014 Huntington Beach Cruise-In!
Stay tuned for more coverage from this year’s HB event throughout the week.
