The port workers problems mustjml1952 said:Congrats.
And welcome to the last phase of the waiting game.
My car arrived at port @ Nov 14th. Tomorrow will be Dec 14th. No call yet to come pick up my car. And my dealer is practically in the same city as the distribution center.
Ship arrives at port, but was taking 5-6 days to get into a berth in Long Beach to be unloaded. Takes xx days to clear customs. Takes xx days to ship the container to the distribution center. Takes xx days to unpack car and apply Starshield. Takes xx days to truck car over to dealer. Takes a day or two for dealer to prep the car for pick-up.
It should be possible to accomplish this in well under 30 days, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Hurry up and wait.
Has the Port cleared the backup of ships?
Yes. For the first time since June, there were no vessels docked at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles sitting idle because of a shortage of longshore workers.
The number of vessels at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles has dropped from a high of 94 ships in mid-October to 49 ships today, Monday, Nov. 22. The number of vessels waiting for an open berth has declined from more than 40 to 11 today -- with no container ships at anchor. Average turnaround times have fallen from as long as 10 days for a few vessels down to about the normal turnaround time of two to three days.
On snow days I'll tool around in my 87Vangman said:Ridge,

Bill gave me a November build date backVangman said:Sounds sweet. I can't wait to see it. Please post pics as stuff arrives and is installed.
BTW - Can you give me a perspective on the time line since Bill called you and said they were building your car? Just trying to get an idea for my car so I can ensure everything is in place on my side.
