She's still fully wrapped just like I asked.

That looks great -I'd love more interior shots!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Looks like I may finally make it our of IL today, not saying there is anything wrong with IL but boy will I be glad to see that train hitting new destinations.

Gary, looks like you are right behind me and hopefully they just didn't update your departure and it was actually hooked to the same engine. Anxiously awaiting the next update...

Glad to hear and see your still moving! I hope you get a longer hop soon! I am not sure, if I caught up or not...Thinking I got stopped, as my delivery date changed to 11-18! Oh well it will get here, maybe before Thanksgiving! Good luck! Fifty miles north of here we had a train derail, The news said 123 train cars...Most likely a grain train, although I think they are all 104 cars.

Guys....make sure you go through a full inspection checklist. My right door wasn't flush so they are looking at it. Even in the excitement, keep a cool head and check everything out. My right rear tail light assembly is a little close to the hatch light assembly but nearly everyone has noticed that in theirs. They are looking at that as well. Pics of left then right. The right door not flush pic doesn't show the issue but it is obvious to the eye from the rear.

Well that sucks, I figured since you caught up on the tracks they'd just hook up and go. Well hopefully the're off on that date and it's actually early for a change.

I remember Chevy talking about the issue with the right tail light when we took the tour, as I recall it was an issue with the holes being drilled wrong. I'm a little surprised something like that got through the 3 week 100% inspection :-) So what do you do now? If the dealer can't fix it do you reject the car and order another one or take it as is? Tough call as you've waited so long.

Unless MOTS just missed an update for Gary, looks like he *just* missed your train.

Aren't all the tail lights like that? I thought someone posted it was the way they drilled the holes and there would be no fix for 2014? I didn't pay attention on any of the stock the dealers had on the lot but will defiantly be checking when mine comes in. Also for the door, is that something they're going to be able to easily fix? I know I would rather wait a couple days to make sure it was right then have to come back when my name was on the title....but it sucks either way when we fed that 100% quality line for a month.
