The final shipment of equipment to complete General Motors' new stamping facility in Arlington will arrive this afternoon.

A 19-axle hauler is carrying a 200,000-pound mold that will, quite literally, stamp metal parts for GM's new line of sport utility vehicles -- including things like doors and hoods.

GM invested $200 million to build the stamping plant in Arlington and created 200 new jobs with the facility.

In total, it will have taken four shipments to complete the 400-ton stamping press. Three other trucks arrived in recent weeks with the parts.

The truck is on its way from the Port of Houston, and it can only travel at 30 mph. It's expected to arrive in Arlington at about 1 p.m.
