Yesterday it was an intermodal container on a semi. Almost exactly like the the intermodals in the photo from the 6k press. Intermodal containers are just crates with wheels attached. In one of his shots they are on the truck, in the other, off the truck.

I'd be willing to bet that's how the base' are moved. You can't crate something THAT heavy. Or rather, why bother crating it. Just put it in a container like that.

That's not texas, where I showed it being built. Thats from Italy. Sorry! However, I am completely positive it's in progress.
How depressing. So you were just showing me that the base could be multiple parts? Does that photo even show that?

I am expecting that a photo by Joe will show them assembling the press. I think that IDRA sends a team to assemble them and they won’t be twiddling their thumbs if the base is there.

I was showing you the clearest I could find a base, without all the press on top. I'm sorry John.

I do believe it is at LEAST two pieces.

I think the containers could BE said base, and they don't crate that, but rather unload each half and align it together on the factory slab to begin build.

This one was spied in Texas en-route. It’s on a taller trailer and most of them are on really low trailers. This might be the same as the second photo I posted above.

Then need to line all these up so we can count them.

I think you might be right and the photo shows that it is at least possible.

Pure speculation on my part, I just think that makes the most sense.

I've shipped 98" 4K TVs before, that's my qualification to speculate lmao. But yea. I'm no expert.

Channel that enthusiasm. Cross reference the serial numbers and figure out how many boxes and whether there are two sets of parts. Shouldn’t be too hard…

Actually, right now ALL Chevy Bolts are being recalled because of fire risk.

But it is not a problems with the Bolt's EV battery.

The GM/Chevy car company that supposedly has 100 years of relevant experience and produced 100 million vehicles forgot that in an accident the seat belt pre-tensioner is supposed to have a little explosion and the explosion should be kept from setting the cars carpet on fire !!!
NVM my last comment, this was the one I was talking about

We know that each 6K ton gigapress took 30+ trucks. I haven’t been counting but I would be very surprised to hear that there have been that many trucks, let alone twice that many. But you won’t hear any complaints from me if there are 2 9K ton gigapresses.

Presumably the photographer was charging their car when they spotted it.

One nice thing for Tesla about the cybertruck is it generates it’s won buzz. By extension IDRA falls under that halo.
