So hours long from build sheet to build?
First Dearborn takes in all the orders> which right now is 9-15-2020.
Ford will decide the build order from, first edition, North America, Europe.
The scheduling clerk in dearborn will work with the scheduling clerk in Mexico, To get the proper order and build sheets done. Once that is done. The dealer will be notified of an expected date of the build and estimated delivery. Dearborn should also update your profile on ford.com also at that time.

Not really many different trims, no motors, or other options to the mache. Unlike other vehicles at other auto manufacturing plants. You can not run certain models back to back since some jobs on the line cant keep up.
So say you would have to run premium. gt, select, select premium gt.
With the mache not having many different variances, this should not be a problem. At least I have not heard of yet.

Does your ford.com profile display delivery timing (when it becomes available)? Post your VIN when it becomes available.

So those people are going to be the most important folks in the company soon. And well worth whatever it is that Ford pays them.

If 9/15 is the cutoff and the machdrops are being added to WEBDO in 9/18, will that be an issue for the drop builds?

Don't blink you will miss it.

Start sending those builds sheets! They should be simpler to build when you are not dumping oil, tranny and diff fluid into them.

Guess the dealers will start getting calls this month? :cool:

What’s their beverage of choice?! I’m not above bribery to get my MME before year end!
I am a little more than a 2 hour drive to Dearborn. I will personally volunteer to deliver the goods on a weekend if it will help.

Considering that most of Ford is working from home and is slated to continue to do so until next year the person you may need to deliver to could be somewhere far away from Dearborn.
