I've seen similar tricks on other car paint lines, such as BMW putting the gas cover door in the window.Interesting detail I noticed: the gear tunnel doors seem to be (temporarily) mounted to the bed rails so that the paint robots have easy access to them. That’s a cool solution to that. Once the truck gets to general assembly, I’m sure workers just remove them and attach them to the actual gear tunnel.
That's me!That might be a good sign for the 3 Compass Yellow pre-orders! They'll get those run through all at once to expedite production.
