    You have a part number for the rear deck lid supports? I tried over a year ago to get them with no luck.

    Are you going to remove the plastic trim panel from the trunk?

    Yeah.
    I removed all the trunk junk and trim / liners 2 years ago when I installed the R rear seat delete before ford performance even offered the R rear seat delete as a kit. Paid through the nose at the time to get it also ($2100.00).
    I couldn't find a part number for the deck lid supports (bumpers) anywhere.

    I don't have the part number. Couldn't find them on line -- moved the old ones from Wally on to the Race car. They are riveted on.

    I believe you're missing the shocks. The R has a different part number for its shocks that accounts for a smaller (I think) diameter valve. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yes -- good catch. Plus revised Controller calibration, I believe.

    The R dampers do have smaller “slot gaps”. It’s the slots that get magnetized and stiffen the MR fluid.

    Trunk lid bumpers...just need depth measurements, a couple of hockey pucks, 4 rivnuts and a carpenters hacksaw (or equivalent).

    Should be an easy fab.
