Did you see that you went from convoy to rail, will that change things? And yes the car is a whole lot of sweetness that I can't wait to check out. Memo to Dunk812
Yes I saw it’s now passing in transit so it passed a station. I would think it would come rail to Baltimore and truck over from there.

Excellent question. It's at the dealer in NY waiting for shipping to Ca. I'll have them look at it.
If you look close, upper left you will see an open hole. in picture, blow it up

To all the people that have their car at home check your battery covers. Mine was missing all 3 black plastic rivets that hold the cover in place, so check yours for open holes. I found one on line this morning, he had no idea they were not installed. I do QC for a living so I rarely miss shit.

I like to disassemble things.
I found some notes in a Ford manual that covers post production and transportation, be it rail or convoy. In it Ford dictates how long a car can sit before the battery must be charged up. This is what drives me nuts about my own car. You have multiple individuals in contact with the car. It's cold and they are in a hurry. So if they do anything to your car they really don't give a shit. I strongly suspect your car rolled off the line with all the pins in place.

At least you have your car...

I'm not going by the picture. What I wrote has to do with procedures in place when a given vehicle sits for a certain amount of time.

I understand what you said about what you read, could be the explanation to my issue. I am just telling people to look at their cars, you don't want anything loose under that hood.

The cover can't go anywhere even with the pins missing. It is the same one used on the GT350 and I went through the same thing. I forget what the push pin part number is but its a good idea to keep a bag of extras in the glovebox.

The Dealer ordered more so I can get the number from there, thanks.

I have a bag of them from my my last car (dropped them down inside the engine compartment :headbang:), but all 3 of mine were there on my 500 when I got it. I agree with epiphany, they were most likely there when it left the assembly line, somebody opened the cover due to a dead battery and they never went back on.

With all I see about the pins I agree with you that they were installed at assembly,but as with what you orginally said, about all the hands touching our cars.
