Factory Five customer Tom B. from Land O Lakes, FL sent us an e-mail the other day to let us know that he has officially completed his Mk4 Roadster build and graduated it on The Factory Five Forum!
“I wanted a hot rod that was vintage on the outside and new tech and performance on the inside,” wrote Tom, “and I think I’ve accomplished that.”
Tom went with an Mk4 Roadster base kit which he powers with a 5.0L Coyote. Some of the options Tom went with are the 3-link rear suspension, Wilwood brakes, chrome roll bars for both driver and passenger, and leather steering wheel. A stereo unit was installed behind the dash to keep it out of sight while the speakers are hidden in front of the shifter below the dash.
Congratulations on a great build, Tom! Hope you enjoy your hard work this summer as you drive around Florida.
