From the Launch Event but Sandy Munro is going over things and it is a good listen.

I didn't know having your arms above your shoulder for a long period of time can cause heart attacks -_-

Hmm he says they may be understating how much they can do in the current plant.

Yea I didn't notice that but as long as there is enough room behind it, maybe. Guess we'll have to wait and see what Sandy says when he pulls it apart. He noted that the orange cables go down the sides.

Anyone else noticed the hole under the false charging door on the passenger side? Why put a hole there? Maybe there were if are plans for charging on both sides of the truck.
Would love to see some sort of mod for the right-side fender cutout. Like a secret storage compartment or something.

There has been some talk of dual charge ports to allow fleet customers to daisy chain trucks.

Also - around the 1:55 minute mark, Sandy noticed and was perplexed why they had the foil shield in what presumably is used to block/deflect heat from the engine. I think this is a good example of how Ford quickly pivoted to producing the Lightning, leveraging as much as they could from their ICE F-150's. We know there will be many areas that will be changed out when the full ground up truck is designed. I wonder how many other things will ultimately be changed when they start from scratch?

It is a factory dedicated to the Lightning. That means they don’t have to include stuff from from a standard F-150 like the foil shield. Not sure why they needed it.
