I work at a different ford plant and my experience is they will get them the easiest way possible, they will not move a bunch of vehicles to take them in a specific order.I wonder if they are really following a protocol of FIFO or are they having to work through all the last builds to get to our early dirt mountain builds.
The letter to existing owners states that "new " quarter glass shall be installed by the dealer. I am thinking they will reuse the back glass.Are the rear quarter windows removed from the defective top and installed in the MIC 2.0?
Outside of FEs and those already with VINs, new hard tops will be pushing to MY22. I suspect the soft top advantage will probably continue into next year to balance out available MIC and capacity. There are after all still about 80,000 hard tops in line. But your point is well taken, at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel now with MIC 2.0.I get the feeling that alot who switched to soft top (due to need or desire for a sooner build) might not have done so if it wasn't going to help anyways, and would've just rolled the dice with the desired hard top. Just a thought.
i made the switch and after some thought, the 4 door soft top will better suit what i'll be doing. the "safari" style with the soft top will be much more frequent than the two panel removal style with the 2 door for me, plus the extra room will be good for future (kids, dogs, overland storage space)9/13 build week here... And you say 9/13 thru 9/30 being pushed back but not affecting production? Kind of sounds like it is if these dates are being pushed.
Still hoping for a window sticker this week but losing faith. Maybe time for Ford to lower their production numbers yet again.
