When viewer Malcolm Marsh reached out and asked me to build his Factory Five Cobra replica, I was a bit reluctant at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do it.
Eventually we worked things out, and Malcolm brought me this Factory Five Mk II that was partially completed by its previous owner that passed away. To say I have my work cut out for me is something of an understatement. It’s one thing to build a kit car when it’s new, it’s something else entirely to take on the project after it was half completed and sitting in a garage for several years, but I’m up for the challenge, and looking forward to it.
I’m going to start by getting the body off the car and having a closer look at what I’m dealing with. After that, I’ll make a parts list and a plan, then, present it to Malcolm. Once I get that sorted, I’ll start making videos of the project.
I hope you stick around to see the progress as I bring this kit car to life. Stay tuned.
