Thanks for the reassurance.
I am not unfamiliar to waiting... Waited 7 months for my 13 GT500 to come in after working towards the purchase for 8 months prior to the order (started working towards it the day the info came out about them)

And in a sense I have been waiting for the SRT since February... Getting all my ducks in a row to make the purchase....
Preparing and selling my rare 98 Cobra (started getting it ready in Feb after confirming the SRT was the one for me).
Once it sold I started preparing my DD 08 TBSS for sale (now that the garage space was available due to the sale of the 98 Cobra).
I even bought a cheap 01 Ranger Edge (regular cab, power nothing, manual RWD) to drive back and forth to work while I prepared the TBSS for sale (knowing it would sell quickly).
The TBSS sells next week...
The Ranger will not work in snow... And I am going on a week long vacation to an area with Snow for Christmas....
So that is why I need the SRT by the 2nd week of December (that gives me enough time to get it tinted and more importantly the Xpel Ultimate put on it so I wont get any rock chips during the trip)

Worst worst case scenario is I can take one of the dealerships vehicle for the trip in December.... But I have been looking forward to the taking the SRT since Feb.

Knowing it takes 6-8 weeks for the vehicle to come in... means I need to order like NOW. Did not order prior due to wanting to use the equity from the TBSS as down payment and prefer to have a 30 day time gap between selling the TBSS and financing the SRT (will drop my rate .25% due to things on my bureau/ where I am at score wise)

Make sense?

Re: Paint Shortage?!?

Redline is definitely the best colour but I could be a tad biased

Yes, orders already in the system will get built up until the paint shut-down date, and will resume on the dates shown after the shutdown.

Re: Paint Shortage?!?

Is there any chance True Blue will be offered on the SRT? That would be amazing!
