pikeville KY. you're definitely going to be on the same trailer as me. We'll have to keep in touch.
So Christmas came to W Michigan today (the snow wasn't so much of a present):
39136


The entire kit will definitely fit in a short bed truck:

39137


The driver had 8 kits to deliver on this run. First stop was Illinois, then Michigan, then Indiana, then Kentucky, then WV, then PA, then MA, then PA. The route seems odd to me, but that's what the driver told me.

Hoping that’s mine back there. I have to double bars on the roof.

Just called Stewart. Sounds like they delivered IN and are heading to KY now. May not make it there today but will likely delivery first thing tomorrow and the WV (me) tomorrow afternoon.

@newbtrying shoot me a message after they drop off.

Just picked up my frame this morning. Easily fit into the back of a chevy colorado, and easily unloaded by one guy. the transmission I bought with it was the hardest to move lmao!

here's some photos. now to install an LSD in my F23 and research powder coating cost vs DIY rattle can paint job.

You guys sure do have it nice with the Factory Five trailer. Mine was crated up and shipped via regular freight that we had to drive down to their freight yard to pick it up.

My kit arrived on the back of a flat trailer with three other kits (one with a damaged hood, yikes), driven by two extremely grumpy dudes that stood there with their hands on their hips while I unloaded alone. :D

There are lots black, silver and green frames in the family. Choose what makes you happy and don't worry about 'copying' something that you like. :D
I love the neon green/yellow frame look, but there are so many. I may go with a Toyota tan or something earthy-toned. So many options, it's hard to decide! LOL

I chose a more neutral color for my frame (dark grey metallic) so I could more freely change the hood/engine cover color. Almost everything works with grey. Just food for thought.
Yup same thing I did. Went with jungle grey from prismatic. If I want to change the looks of the car later I'll mess with different hood or wheel colors.
