    Tesla from hemp fiber?

    Have there ever been plans to make a Tesla body made from hemp fiber? Industrial fiber-hemp grows like crazy and absorbs CO2 (don't know about N2) and is very strong. See Ford video from 1941(they also used with a sledgehammer).

    Model S - with stainless steel body

    I wonder how many people with Model S and Xs would pay a premium for getting the outer shell of the Cybertruck? Just for the humour.

    Edinburgh SR+ pickup, minor body issues, impressions and other thoughts

    Hey all. A brief account of my experience picking up in Edinburgh on Saturday. There were 5 cars in our group. We got time with a demo car. We were showed about and our apps were set up automagically. Our cars were outside and were 'big revealed'. My white SR+ had no paint issues but did have...

    Looking For A Mod Shop In Los Angeles - South Bay

    Hello, Just picked up my Model 3 yesterday, and am now researching on where I go to do some mods to it. Specifically I am looking for door handle wraps, center console wraps, and tinting for the glass. If anyone has any experience with some shops in the area, would love to hear your experiences!

    Body Panel Availability - Passenger Door, Right Front Fender?

    Has anyone ordered a new Model X right front door and right front fender lately? How available are those items? Cost? Mine are a bit damaged, the car is driveable.... It's just not very pretty right now.

    Seattle Body/Paint Shop

    Any recommendations on a good body shop in Seattle for a simple scratch on my rear bumper? It's deep enough that I want to fill it properly, but there's no other obvious damage. Also I have a few other minor paint flaws (to pitted bubbles) from delivery that I want to take care of at the same...

    Help!?!?

    2017 Model S 100D I have had body panels creaking against each other since day one. Highland Park, IL store says that engineering is aware of the issue and is working on a solution. I also have continuing problems with air suspension. Last promises to fix were over 2 months ago. Now I...

    Model 3 Side Mirrors

    After watching a couple videos about the side mirrors on a Model 3, they look like they're the exact same ones as the Model S. Can anybody confirm this? Whether or not they're the same part number, I don't know. But I'm mostly wondering are they effectively the same devices and do they come...

    Model 3 body is "Hybrid steel/aluminum" - good for future of MS repairs ?

    Model 3 press kit is currently at : Press Kit | Tesla It says... Body Hybrid steel/aluminum body Drag coefficient of 0.23 Interesting as I thought they were moving to an entirely steel body. I'm impressed at the weight ~3500 lbs with std. batt. If there are similar aluminum elements to...

    Model S and X aluminium body thoughts

    Given the high cost of repairs for the aluminium body panels, what would be the weight increase if the body were made of steel or some other composite? (I'm not talking about the underlying structure). What might be the cost differential? Surely, it would make it cheaper to produce and I would...

    MX Imperfections: Some Perspective

    I just wanted to take a moment to share a couple quick thoughts, especially in regards to the ease we have of complaining about our Tesla's. From some of the stories I've read here at TMC, I felt rather lucky when I picked up my MX 90D last month and ONLY had a piece of misaligned trim, two...

    Titanium Full Battery Shield

    Brought my MS85 today to diagnose a center screen issue and the techs offered me to (optionally) install a shield (titanium-aluminum) specially designed to further protect the lithium battery pack and other critical areas. They have in stock, so I said yes. It will take close to an hour to...
