Does anyone have CONSTRUCTIVE input on the best way to tie down a Fox body to the trailer??

It is good practice to "cross" the tie downs @ one end to minimize side forces. Also when you ratchet, do so evenly. You will know you have it right when there is almost no rebound when pressing on the corners of the car.
I think the ones around the rear axle are the most important at least to me. I am not going to accelerate fast enough in my trailer for my car to slide backward but if someone pulls out in front of me I would sure stopped fast enough that it might get thrown forward. I also put wrap a couple of old towels around the hooks so they don't scratch anything under there when I tighten it all down. I do strap down the front also.
Just my 2 cents worth.
I was at the SEMA show a few weeks ago and I saw some great accessories for our trailers . One was BREAKAWAY CABLE other was AUTOMATIC JACK FOOT no more wood other CHOCKS NO KNEELING OR BENDING . Check out www.FastwayTrailer.com
Wheel chock looks like a good thing, thanks for sharing.
