I wonder how the paint production is done... do they have several paint lines or run batches of one color, etc.

They change color per vehicle to run through it, all automated all robotic .

There are some video's on YouTube showing this, and other parts of the line(s).

Cool, didn't know the paint-bots could just switch from one color to the next. Thought it would be more involved....

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I have been looking at the dealer inventories around here. 3 viable options. One is near identical but a 2014.

Latest from dealer on mine is it may ship this week. Their tone went from it will to it may :-(

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

was hoping for delivery before Labor Day.

On a rail car in Cinncinnati... a mere 8 hours away. Still showing status "I" but that can't be right.

Now they've back the estimated delivery to 9-04-14.

Been patient so far.... but the closer it gets the tougher it is, even for an old man!

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Well, mine finally came in today! ordered on 7/7/14, and in my driveway on 8/26/14. Just finished putting on the Premium Soft Top, and man, what a work out! As I struggled to stretch it over the rigging, I remembered the post I read weeks ago about how you should let it warm up in the sun before you put it on. Then I looked at the horizon and watched the sun set behind the trees. Oh well, no stopping now, and I actually finished before dark! Really love the Hydro Blue. Pictures look good as is, but when you see it in the Sun, with the black top and fenders for contrast, it really pops! Very happy with my choice!
Want to send a big "Thank You" to Milous, Pat, & Archer for all the expert tips, as well as the dozens of helpful members that really taught me a lot, and steered me into making choices I would really be happy with.
Also a big pat on the back to Scottina06 for running such a great forum.
This site ROCKS!!!

My baja rig also has a ship date of 9/2. Guess they really are gonna build it and move it on production day 1.

Hoping Archer gives it a little ding under the floorboard or something.

I believe there are either multiple paint-bots, or the paint-bots have multiple paint heads. Either way, that is what limits the total number of colors that can be offered at any one time.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

According to the VOTS hack, my Hydro Blue has gone from Production Scheduled to Frame to Paint today. Right on schedule for the estimated ship date of 8/28 that I received when it went to D1 a few weeks back.
