Just got cleared to share a bit more. Many of the 2 door floor pans are being delivered from FlexNGate damaged, apparently due to the logistics surrounding the transport racks.

MAP has an area set up to repair them but it is obviously causing delays in getting the body shop moving on 2 doors in appreciable numbers.

A longer-term solution is in the works but I can't say for certain how long that will take.
Can you say what kind of damage? I'd be pissed if my brand new bronco had bondo or some type of body filler on the quarter panels...

Slow down there! Don’t be spreading rumors about the quarter panels. Guys’ll start flipping out.

Dunnage issues through typically can be solved in two stages so that is not the worst news. First stage, throw money at it to mitigate the issue short term and then rethink the shipping for a longer term solution.

125 per shift most of this week, up to 150 per shift for Friday. Based on where they were 2 weeks ago, that's a solid jump.

Next target is 200 per shift in about 4 weeks.

I know those folks are working HARD to produce and get even more efficient at building these.
My cousin talks with so much pride about how hard they are working and he knows there are a lot of people sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to hear their Bronco is being built.
When he's excited....I'm excited.

AFAIK... completion of currently-reserved rigs should wrap up in Q3 2022... subject to change.

You are just the best, have you ever worked for the CIA? Because I would sleep better at night if I knew the cia was as good at getting intel as you.

thanks, your the best!
