    Amazing craftsmanship @Tex EV! And good on you for documenting the challenging process and giving props to @hcsharp – as opposed to some who nefariously plagiarize other's efforts. You and @CM_007 should perhaps consider printing, embossing, or engraving your names/logos on your products like...

    Ah good eye! Though, I think it's the rears that need swapping of sides – plus having their tires un/remounted on the correct side to account for the directional tread 😇

    Best charging practice/set up for a Roadster (1.5 in North America in specifically)

    Hardwired 240V L2 EVSE with the Roadster dialed down to charge between 24-32A on a Standard Charge is the way to go. Whether you use your OE Roadster HPWC (Suntron) or get something more modern is a matter of choice. If the Roadster's the only thing that will charge in that location, then...

    Front License Plate Wrap Now Legal in CA

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned elsewhere but, while I'm surprised this actually passed, I'm pretty happy and impressed it did!

    Educational Materials About Tesla Roadsters (pre-K)

    I've got not affiliation to this group, the author, or anyone involved at their company but perhaps check out this book or reach out to Coltura to see if they'd be willing to donate some copies?

    Full Replacement value insurance

    The Hagerty insurance quote wizard here listed the Roadster as one of the vehicles they cover so I decided to see if it would generate a quote for me. I entered $175,000 US as the "Guaranteed Value Amount" for an unmodified 2011 2.5 RS and it seemed to go through just fine and I received a...

    Do I risk bending my trunk panel if the right side won't latch?

    I think you may just need to adjust the latch position up a tad to better/fully engage the catch on the boot lid. If you decide to go the DIY route, this thread here may help. It sure helped me. If you need to replace the latches, the P/N can be found here.

    What color is my Roadster?

    Calling out each of @DeedWest's facts individually to help steer you away from a color change and submitting this book cover which I think sums up my sentiments and perhaps that of others who feel these cars are moving into collector territory now.

    2.0 / 2.5 Roadster / Roadster Sport Tire Thread

    Yes, buy them with confidence 👍 as many of us have them on our cars and are very pleased with the performance and wear characteristics. Note: 195/50 is an approved "alternative" to the stock spec per Tesla's own recommendation (see attached from owner's manual).
