    I picked up a new set of Cobra R's just days before I moved from Florida. Other than that, nothing has happened with the car. We had been prepping for our move to Colorado, living in temporary housing for a few weeks, and just got to Colorado about a week ago.

    I had the car shipped and it arrived last Tuesday, in an enclosed trailer nonetheless. Evidently the carrier had a spot on an enclosed trailer so they loaded it onto that. I used ABCAutoTransport and everything went very smoothly.

    After I get the rest of the boxes unpacked in the house, and get the garage squared away, things might start happening with the car again although I suspect house projects are going to take a priority for awhile.

    When I did my SVO, the metal was bent up on the bumper also. I welded a 12" long piece of 1" angle steel to the strip basically under each taillight area because the bumper cover was warped so bad that it wanted to pull the strip down even once it was bolted tight. Worked like a charm. Bumper is nice and staight now.

    After reading thru this whole thread, I have to say you are doing a very nice job indeed!!
    When you got to the stage of getting it ready to paint, I cringed. I have painted two fox body Mustangs, one last summer and one this summer. Man I absolutely hate getting these cars ready and painting them. I think I'm going to stick with the 60's Mustang's, they are much easier to deal with in my experiences!!
