    Kansas City getting work from DSP?

    Those are new presses in those crates and under the tarps. The dies are old Focus dies.
  2. I've owned 2 3.5 Ecoboost F-150's. My current one is a 2018. Very satisfied with the power and towing ability. Do you know what CAFE Standards are? With most of the sedan's going away Ford needs to squeeze every drop it can to meet those MPG standards. Especially with most sedan's going away.

    Kansas Stamping is getting a new Cross Bar Stamping Press. The press is currently being stored at the old Wayne Assembly Plant. Fuzzymoomoo Can also verify this.
  4. Those F-150 dash panels aren't aluminum. If they were aluminum they wouldn't be so heavy. Those panels are made out of what's called "Quiet Steel". I just walked past 1 Line, we're stamping out 7,500 of them this run.
  5. Where did you get that INFO??? From your work area walk about a 1/2 mile South and you'll see what I'm talking about. MAP Stamping stamps out the bed sides and the bed floor. Sub Assembly puts them together. You are correct about the tail gate because its stamped out of aluminum, same as the fenders and hood. MAP Stamping isn't set up to make aluminum stampings because we don't have a system set up here to handle the aluminum scrap.

    FRAP GOING TO ONE SHIFT NY FEBRUARY

    MAP Will not need any workers when the Ranger build starts. MAP Is trying to figure out what to do with the workers they already have.
  7. The lack of experienced knowledge is a huge factor when you push that knowledge out the door in one large swoop. But at least the Millennials are happy with their Dearborn Campus.... (Romper Room)

    I started at that plant in 1986 when it was Mazda.

    FRAP GOING TO ONE SHIFT NY FEBRUARY

    deflep1, Well written and the reality of TRUTH... But I don't think whatever your Plant and Assistant Plant Managers attempt to do will change the future of FRAP. Those decisions are decided from way up the Totem Pole from where those people stand....... How is the morale at FRAP?
  10. fuzzy... Stamping is where you want to be for the money....
  11. Reviewer calls it a car.... ;)

    Chassis cab Ranger

    Those vents are called baffles. They allow air to escape when closing the doors..... Anyone here been in an old school VW Beetle when the door gets closed? You ears would almost pop because there wasn't a way for the air to escape.
