    Model X 2019 Raven Sound Deadening Doors Project

    Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any issues that may occur if you try to do this yourself. This is only to show what I was able to do and how I did it. We have had our 2019 MXLR for about 10 months now, and I have been obsessed with trying to cut down wind and road noise ever since we...

    Double-DIN Dash Replacement by Carl Medlock

    I love my Roadster #609. I really want to keep it as an original. But there are a number of things that annoy the hell out of me. So I took it to Carl Medlock of Medlock and Sons for some work. For those of you who do not know, Carl has a Roadster repair shop in the Seattle area, and works...

    Water entering from bottom of trunk, strange screw piercing trunk?

    As photos of the interior disassembled are useful for a number of purposes for we modders, I thought it would be useful to post Don Sambrook and Bert Miller's work on sound deadening my Model S. I found these photos incredibly helpful. I've divided these in sections: trunk, floor, doors...

    Sound deadening work begins next week: will report before and after data

    On Monday I'm dropping my Model S off at Don Sambrook's shop in Manchester, Maryland for him to begin work on sound deadening the car. Don is one of the top experts in the field and I'm very fortunate that his shop is only 20 miles or so from my home and that he could even take me as a client...

    Tore up the cargo area

    I noticed a lot of tire and road noise coming over the rear seat from the wheel wells and cargo floor when I sat in the back seat. Because the car is used in a limousine service, I wanted the customers to have the full benefit of the Model S quiet ride.So we tore up the carpets and put in some...
