Ford has a serious problem on their hands once cold weather kicks in.

Frost heaving is going to rip the tops apart (around the edges) if there is moisture ingress as the photos so far show gaps plenty wide enough for snow or water accumulation. Simple science, really. Pot holes, but on your roof edging.

If you live in a cold weather climate, you may need to look at some repair work if my hunch is correct. Even some tape or 2 part epoxy could seal the edging a bit. There are special epoxy brands just for this.

If you live someplace warm like I do, then this is really a non issue.

I have full faith in Ford to fix this and my order is a go.

Thank you for the update!
I agree. I would photo/detail any issues with the hard top i may have whenever mine arrives. Then, i would get excellent adhesive and meticulously go over all the MIC roof edges to give me best hope of least degradation until warranty provides otherwise.
Ross, you're a superstar! Prese pass on my 'Well Done' to any MAP folks you converse with - we all know it's not them.

I saw a video also detailing to wait until September to Place the softop order - the units will then be pre-fitted with hard top conversion kits (wiper/wash lines).
At this rate, I think you're already good to change the order to soft top as if you don't have a VIN by now, that means that your built will be after September.

My build status for 7/19 has been sitting at "In Production" for almost a week with no updates, is this a normal experience others been having? I never received any emails or anything from ford at all. I just happened to see all this on my own.. Is this common?

Mine
yours is interesting being that most current builds have been getting shipped, 2 door or 4 door?
7/14 and have heard nothing. My tracker still says in production with 7/14 under it

you will have automatically voided your warranty; see pages (I think) 13, 14

Ya, thought about that but - only after showing the Ford rep the damage and filing for warranty repairs.

Not me, hard top only for me. I won't see mine until Nov-Mar anyway so i feel pretty confident they'll get the bugs worked out by then. Thanks though!

Update from a 7/15 Blend with #5520 rotation. No email from Ford but checked my tracker and it shows an ETA now of 8-9. Few other on that thread are getting same changes.
FYI: 4 door OBX with MIC, TOW, LUX, NON SAS and live in NC
So some good news to start the week!

Mine now shows estimated delivery 8/23. Blend date was 7/12, and my rotation was 3717. Seems like if this was legit, I would have a "Built" date on the tracker, as well.

Don't get excited about the delivery date. Mine says 6 days ago.

So are the estimated delivery dates similar to the Window Stickers? A new sticker is generated every 7 days. So if your order is >2 weeks "In Production" you win an Estimated Dealer Delivery date? Thanks for playing, LOL.

This is an "estimate" of the delivery based on the vehicle being built and where and how it is to be delivered. This probably should have been posted weeks ago.

Odd that is just appeared yesterday, though, when my order has been in a status of "In Production" since 7/13 without a populated "Built" date. And, no email from Ford.

This was your original intended delivery date (based on what I was reading). Sorry to say, I dont know if it is accurate. there are a lot of people sitting in production from the end of June and recently received these updates as well.
To put it all in perspective, yesterday, my tracker updated w/a delivery date of 7.13 and I have been "In Production" since 6.18
