  • High Wing Constrained 4/20 TPW

    Thank you “GearheadSS” for sharing this, even though it is not good news. It is for the black and the carbon flash black ones only at this time and is a supplier constraint.

    Ford planning to resume 4/6 partial assembly plant production, while GM says it has no definite dates.

    GM still has no “firm return dates.”

      It sure would be nice if GM would show some ingenuity and get the BGA plant up and running in a Clean environment setting. The C8s are sold out as of now according to GM. The other plants could remain closed as I am sure there is plenty of stock at dealerships in the other models. Also I would not be surprised to see other constraints as suppliers are shut down as well.

        Toyota to resume full production 4/20. Information just released and thanks to “theDetroitBureau.”

        Toyota will resume production at “all of its automobile and components plants in North America, including Canada, Mexico and the U.S.” on April 20, the automaker told TheDetroitBureau.com in an e-mailed statement.

          I orderd the high wing, got my car 3,17 , no high wing . still no high wing and no idea when it will show. Wanted it on before ceramic coating, but cant wait any longer. Goes in for PPF and ceramic coating on Monday. I hope he won't charge me to do the wing when I finally get it.

            The high wing constraint is due to the supplier having shut down operations due to COVID-19.

                    Did he mention specifically the (black painted) and (carbon flash painted) only as constrained? Or covers any/all colors under the 5ZU umbrella?

                      The list in the first post just indicates the 5ZU generally, no mention of only some colors, so I would guess that all are affected. Presumably including your Torch Red wing. Sorry.

                        John, ks it fair to believe if you TPW is 3/16 the plant knows they have a wing lined up for you (even if the actual build is 4/20)

                          I sure hope so because my TPW was 3/16 and my body was in paint when the
                          plant shut down. I have the high wing ordered as well. Also 5VM and who knows how that will turn out?

                            There are high wings available on the internet now if your dealer can not get you one on your order or at their parts counter. [Mine coincidentally is already at my dealers, lonely awaiting his car to arrive to mate to; our Corvettes are “he’s.”]
