    Thanks guys, I’m pretty excited.....:)

    I told my dealer to leave it as delivered, that’s what he did, no washing, plastic removal, PDI etc.

    even left shipping dust.....:D

    I trailered her home yesterday, with my younger son Jonathan, I had 10 miles on odometer at delivery...... wonder what the average is ?

    Unfortunately they didn’t even put gas, when received display showed 4 miles to empty !!

    Once home ,I drove slowly ( max 20 miles/hr) approximately 2.5 miles to fill her up, hope it didn’t do any damage with shipping blocks on

    To be honest, I was so excited, I forgot they were there , and I just threw license plate behind back window and took off slowly to buy gas

    After work today, I need to wash her, and maybe remove stickers

    When I get more time, install splitter and remove the shipping blocks

    I already have the foam blockers for the rocker panels, Steeda jacking bars ready to install, just need to find some time


    Question for you Tomster...... do I need to have suspension recalibrated, once shipping blocks are removed ?

    Well it’s off to work for me, have a great day all.....:amen:

    No, not unless you are getting error codes. They should be removed ASAP though. It's simple, Jack the car, reach in and grab them. Yellow in front, white in the rear

    Congrats on the car! You got the best looking color for sure :)

    In addition to the foam blockers I would get real rock blockers (similar to the ones factory put on the rear wheels). With the Cup2s up front you are dealing with a rock throwing machine :) That and add clear film protection in front of the rear wheels and bottom of the doors (this is the minimum I would do).

    Congrats! Great color combo! As mentioned above I'd also recommend getting paint correction then clear bra the entire front, roof, pillars, lower doors and in front of the rear wheels. Ive tried the foam rock blockers as well and with the R tire sizes it's a must to get the front guards that match the rear. I got mine from ZL1 add on's.

    You guys are great !!

    Thanks for all the tips and answers to my questions...... :cheers:

    I had some time tonight, so I washed herwith Mcguiars Gold wash and put on a coat of Mother’s pure carnuba wax......:)

    The garage is full, and I have to take out one car to make room for the

    New Shelby......:ford:....... which will take a few days, hopefully by the weekend

    When I can I’ll move out my 1969 Z/28 and put the Shelby with my 1969 Mach

    1...... I think they will get along just fine......:ford:

    I’m going to try tomorrow to remove the shipping blockers

    thanks Tomster.....:cheers:

    Muligan,when are you heading down to pick up yours , or are you already on your way ?
