I am writing this with thankfulness and great respect for Factory Five and the FFR community. I will be shutting down operations of Dark Water Customs at the end of this year.
I have been a part of the community since 1996 when I started looking to order a Mk I roadster. Factory Five was the reason for starting my business in 2004 when we built my second roadster for a showcase piece and in 2008 when I switched my focus specifically to offering parts to the community for the roadster.
After 20 years and lots of fantastic memories I am looking to pass on what I have built to someone with the passion, time and hustle I had when I started. Serving the community worldwide from Australia to Puerto Rico, Hawaii to New Zealand, Mexico to Canada and the good ol USA has been a delight. I have seen many customers come back 3-4 times during those years as they start another build. Having worked with many customers on developing and refining parts has been one of the highlights of my life.
All this being said I want to thank you for the backing of Factory Five and the FFR community all these years. Without you Dark Water Customs would never have come into existence. It's been a great ride. I'm not done with FFR and the community. I am just stepping aside as a vendor.
