All the little issues add up and begin to take time.
That was the thing...we went from the 1999 tahoes and suburbans and went to the 2000-6, then from the 06 to the 07s......the 2000-2006 was the biggest change but this last time alot of the sheetmetal changed, and like I said once the sheetmetal is approved and good, it should only be 6 to 8 months.
We had sheetmetal for the 07s in the plant and test running them four months before we made the first non-saleable unit. Unfortunately, if they are still thinking about moving the gas fill door at this point we could be in for quite a wait. Not to mention the cost to GM to have new dies made for that quarterpanel. Yup.....if they have to move it now...someone on the design team really got an a-- chewing.
