Shipping & Handling

All items are kept in stock and usually ship within 24 hours. Shipping and handling for the continental United States is a flat rate for each item. Actual shipping and handling costs are almost always more than what is charged. We chose flat rate shipping and handling so you would know exactly what you will be charged when you place your order. No other charges of any kind will be added to you order.

Call or email before ordering for international shipping.

Satisfaction Guaranteed!

If you are unhappy, for any reason with any FFMetal.com products I will refund your money no questions asked if you return the item to me within 30 days, unmodified and in resalable condition.


My preferred method of payment and the only way I can accept credit cards is through this website (PayPal). To pay by checks or money orders, please call for the address.

Welcome to FFMetal

Time to pass the torch.

For over ten years now, I've been blessed to work with such a fine group of people, but now it's time I pass the torch over to someone else to continue the FFmetal legacy. The builders of Factory Five Racing cars are unique and wonderful people, and I'm thankful for the great times we've had. I've chosen Bill Dane (Bill_VA on the forums) to take over operations. I feel confident that he'll maintain the service and quality you've come to expect these past years.

Bill built his FFR Roadster about 10 years ago and has pretty much every product FFmetal sold then on his car. He is dedicated to providing great products and service at reasonable prices.

Regards, Linwood

From Bill,

Just like it was for Linwood, it is also very important to me that anyone using FFmetal products are completely satisfied with them. They are manufactured very precisely and are designed to install easily without modification. If you are unhappy, for any reason, I will refund your money, no questions asked, if you return the item to me within 30 days, unmodified and in resalable condition. Thank you for visiting FFMetal.com. Please do not hesitate to call with your questions and comments.

This site is up and running, and current - ready to serve you!



I'll be away from the shop while on vacation from 1/6 to 1/15.

You can still make a purchase, and I'll get it out the door as soon as I get back.

Fat Front Tire "F" Panel Kit

Here is another cool setup the guys at SoFast Racing came up with. This kit replaces the “F” Panels and creates about the most front tire clearance possible. Check out the increased size and all the extra bends in the “F” Panels. If you want to run extra fat front tires this kit helps a lot. This kit is manufactured by SoFast Racing Inc. and is sold by FFMetal and SoFast Racing.

Drivers Footbox Front

Temporarily out of stock

The Drivers Footbox Front is made from .040 6061 aluminum just like the original. As you can see in the pictures no holes have been cut out. This panel gives you the option of cutting just the holes you need for your build and not having to look at the ones you don’t want. This is designed for the Mark 3.1 Roadster, however it should work on the Mark III, but will require significant trimming.

SOFAST Fan Shrouds

Click here for More Info

When I built my car I found these Fan Shrouds and used one on my own car. With an aluminum radiator and the fan that came with my kit it keeps my 500 hp 408 stroker cool, with no temperature creep, even on 90 degree plus days. I was so happy with it I approached Farra Snook the owner of SoFast Racing Inc. about distributing them. The outcome of the talks was an exclusive arrangement with SoFast Racing Inc. The fan Shrouds are manufactured and also sold by SoFast Racing Inc.

These Fan Shrouds have a 16" Cutout and can use the Original fan that came with your Factory 5 Roadster Kit.

This part is a direct fit in a Mk4.

SOFAST Fan Shroud costs $159.00 at your door.

There are two styles of MK4 firewalls, each is exactly the same shape as your original. The only difference is it is made from .090 5052 aluminum. It is much stiffer than the original .040 one and will not flex when you bolt things to it, like a mechanical throttle linkage or heater parts.

Style A: Older Mk4 Design

If your stock FFR firewall driver's side opening is curved like style "A" in the photo below, choose this option:

The FireWall costs $89.00 at your door.

Style B: Newer Mk4 Design

If your stock FFR firewall driver's side opening is angled like style "B" in the photo below, choose this option:

The FireWall costs $89.00 at your door.

The two styles are not interchangable.

Shifter Hole Plate

With all the different transmissions and motor mounts used in Factory Five Roadsters, sometimes the shifter does not line up with the shifter hole and the hole needs to be trimmed for clearance. This plate will help you restore the shifter hole so you can still mount the shift boot and trim ring.

Shifter Hole Plate costs $15.00 at your door.
