    Dipped my car: Autoflex Matte + ZTA Hypershift + Blueberry Juice

    Well I'm glad I've converted yet another person. Lol. The addiction is real. Every part of my car is Autoflexed. Trim, car, wheels, calipers and nosecone. Once Autoflex came out it was a no brained for me. I have something else in mind coming hopefully within a month or so. I don't blame...

    Dipped my car: Autoflex Matte + ZTA Hypershift + Blueberry Juice

    I haven't logged in to TMC since I posted my Autoflexed car a couple months ago. I heard you made a post so I had to return to check it out. I love the color. Trust me, you'll get use to the purple. I didn't want as much purple on mine but the broken necks tell me I'm fine with it. Philips and...

    Custom Dipped Model S with new 21" AGs

    It looks ****ing amazing. I love the color. Awesome job man. You did a really good job. No tiger striping. Kudos. A word of advice. Use more product next time. Unless you decide on doing a color change over the existing dip. 4.5 gallons is not enough for the Model S. It will take forever to...

    AutoFlexed Tesla Model S in ZTS Hypershift

    The company that sells it sprayed multiple panels in Autoflex and left them in full sunlight. Every few months they peel a panel. They just peeled the "one year" panel last week. Perfectly clean peel.

    AutoFlexed Tesla Model S in ZTS Hypershift

    I did a thing... I sprayed my car in Autoflex removable coatings and ZTS Hypershift. Looks and feels like paint. There were 4 other TMC members that had the chance to see and feel the car this evening. It is a very hard shift. 9 different colors. Green, teal, blue, purple, pink, orange, yellow...

    Dipping my car pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    I bought some Fierce Pink Plasti dip from Dipyourcar.com. They do a 20% off sale every year on all pink dip for breast cancer awareness. They show great support for the cause. So I got a gallon. I should get it Monday or Tuesday. I can't wait to get started. My plan is to start with the wheels...

    To de-chrome or not to de-chrome

    LMAO! Just give it time. I like the chrome too. But I also like the blackout look. That's the main reason I like dip. It's easy to apply and completely removable in minutes.

    Blacking out the chrome trim: A trial of various options

    Dip will rub off only when the mirrors auto fold. There is a small pad on the front side of the mirror that rubs the chrome surface and will lift the dip. But then again, vinyl would too I'd think.

    Be very very careful at Superior, MT supercharger

    You have a point. "Tesla" would be used in the headlines. Like it matters what kind of car the assailant owned.

    Blacking out the chrome trim: A trial of various options

    What the F%$# did u do? :scared: Was it self thinned rubber dip spray? That's ur problem them. That stuff is not made for automotive use. - - - Updated - - - Plasti dip and other liquid wrap products are some of the most durable solutions out there. Prep is the key. I had my car dipped for 5...

    2nd-row foot lighting only on one side of car?

    The wires for the lighting is there on all vehicles. Your car must have one of the snap on LED light housings connected. The wires for the lights are wrapped tightly and tucked really high under the seat on those without the premium lighting. As with most things on the Model S, the hardware is...

    Added Custom Accent Lighting for Cheap

    Door armrest lighting- I measured and cut a small strip of cool white LEDs that fit under the armrest. The front doors are 14 inches and the rear doors are 8 inches long. The LEDs are cuttable in 2 inch segments. I soldered about 18 inches of red and black 22 gauge wire and heat shrunk the end...

    Yeah, sorry, didn't have time to write it up earlier. For the door armrest lights- I had to pop off all four door panels to instal these light. I tapped into the wires leading into the window control button. The pic with the insulation in the background shows the white connector leading into...

    Ever "sold" or convinced a non-Tesla geek to buy a Model S?

    I've sold a ton of Model 3s. Again, cost seems to be the barrier. Hurry up Elon and release this thing already.

    I had an upholstery shop near me do this. I didn't do it because I'm vegan, I think it looks [email protected]$$.

    My Frunk Wont Double Latch

    It catches the first latch but not the second. Why? It feels like it nicks it but won't completely close. I've checked, there is nothing in the way. Is it safe to drive? mods please delete thread. Problem solved. Anxiety drove me to post.

    Mystery connector behind cubby (and more!)

    This is how u remove and replace the cubby. Pull this little piece out from under the cubby. It's held on by 2 snap connectors. Then pull cubby down and out. Do the reverse to replace. Easy peasy.

    Mystery connector behind cubby (and more!)

    One side can snap pretty much all the way in. I used a long flathead screwdriver to bend the plastic a bit allowing the other side to snap in place. If you've had this off, you'll now what I mean. It did take about 15 minutes to snap it back in...the first time.

    I never thought I'd buy an electric car...

    Welcome to the fold Taxman. That's one of the greatest things about this car, the owners come in all shapes, sizes, attitudes, walks of life etc... I owned a Prius before my Model S so I've heard about all the jokes. :smile: This car creates unity. I love that about it.

    Tesla moments

    As do most of u I'm sure, when going through a turn, you lean forward and into the turn. At the apex you punch it launching yourself vertically. Well I leaned forward today in my Nissan Sentra rental when going into a turn. Yeah, I almost smacked my head on the dash because the car stuttered and...
