Factory Five Roadster - Last Kit on the Truck :-(

Once you’ve ordered you’re going to spend a lot of time waiting. Factory Five has to build the kit and the the shipping company (Stewart Transport in my case) waits until there are enough deliveries across the country to justify the trip. Then if you’re like me you get to watch them bop around the country delivering everyone else's’ kit saving yours for the last delivery. 

This is a good time to prepare your work area and resources. You’ll need space to do your inventory and store a bunch of large boxes. Depending on your build schedule you might be storing stuff a long time.  Take this time to get the needed tools and supplies.  I'll detail some of stuff I use in following articles.
