Monday delivery has now turned in to Thursday and of course it has to be the trucking company's fault. When will theses dealers learn underpromise and overdeliver once you sign on the line the shitty service starts. Oh well more time to add to my list.
I am taking delivery tomorrow what to look for. have instructed to
  • Ensure original window sticker is on car and not damaged
  • Do not wash car or remove any of the factory plastic protection. (basically no PDI cleanup)
  • Do not install Front license plate bracket
  • Do not install front splitter
  • Do not put any dealer stickers on it
what I should check for
  • 3 piece splitter in trunk
  • convertible boot in trunk
  • license plate bracket in trunk
  • owners manual
  • undercarriage for damage
  • paint with a fine tooth comb
  • panel fits (I know it is a Ford how OCD should I be??)
Tape it and drive home

Make sure the master cylinder is not overfilled. If it is, it may leak out around the cap.

Check wheels for damage, chipped paint, scratches or dings.
Check any place that could come into contact with the transporter., front splitter, exhaust tips, rear valance, etc.

Be there when the truck pulls up. Otherwise you have no guarantee the dealer will do or not do anything on your list.

Have them take the tag off the drive shaft or do it when you get it home. If you have the Shaker Pro, check to make sure the sub is not scratched from the splitter box being shoved in the trunk.

is there enough room for you to slide under there and remove yourself or do you need a ramp/lift?

Update
Car is at dealer and we are going to get it a 5:15 Wife wants to be there
I did drive by the dealer at lunch and it looks great!!
stripes are in line but have to have a closer look at the finish
paint seems to have a couple of spots but will use some quick detail and microfiber and see if it cleans up
The plastic has been removed from the seats but still on the floor
no scrapes on splitter, mufflers, or rear diffuser
will have a real close look after work
WHAT A BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!! :happy feet: :happy feet: :happy feet: :happy feet: :happy feet: :drool: :drool: :drool:
