Dashboard (Actually called an instrument panel) installation, I've done that before. It comes Pre assembled. All we do honestly is bolt it to the body. I can't remember how many bolts holds it in, I can think of about 5 or 6 off the top of my head...

Engine Line is interesting. It starts off boring but later, wow. Engine build is way quicker than assembly!!!

But screw it. Even if they did a 1 hr show, it would just be longer clips of robots and a more thorough "marriage" description. That's all the media likes.

I must have been hallucinating (wouldn't be a first) but I could have sworn they started with the sides being welded to the floor pan, or at least showed that somewhere in the show. Maybe it was in the golf club segment.

Riiiiiiight.. But that's not the beginning. The floor pan isn't one piece.. The front rails, dash panel, dash reinforcement, front floor, and rear floor must be welded together first, before the side aperture reinforcements can be set in place and welded on. And actually, there's a couple other nic-nac parts that are installed in between. That show would have you thinking that the underbody is all one stamped piece.

Idk if anyone caught it, but there was a guy pulling a full underbody on a rolling carrier. (Either leaving weld destruct testing, of heading into the Metrology lab.) That's what the cars look like when they leave my line. Very convertible-ish...

Which is why I make so many trips to Assembly. It's more fast paced over there, and more supervisors lurking, but there's more to see! Staring at bare metal 12hrs a day, getting burned, and inhaling fumes, isn't exactly the best part of the job.

And people STILL wonder why I didn't run to body with the rest of my '10 crew. This is the reason. Plus I can't stand half of those people anyway.

I'll continue to hang out over in assembly on my tugger. More stressful? Yes. MUCH MORE. Will I get burned and have to smell body shop? NO.

I wondered why when I step into the car on the driver's side the floor sinks a little.

It's on today at 8:00 PM EDT / 5:00 PDT. That's the only listing I see on the DirecTV online guide.
