    Just got my car back from the detailer. In case anyone is interested, here's what the 20" sport wheels look like powdercoated "Sonic Gray".

    Franz Style!

    You know.. I was just talking about how I wish I had a garage like that... builders around me just don't make them that way.

    @commasign,

    Awesome! Love it. Planning the same but probably Satin in lieu of Gloss. Could you do a ‘Profile’ side shot outside (whenever it’s convenient)? Looks incredible, nice work!

    That looks fantastic!

    I'm planning on powder coating some Arachnids Sonic Gray on my S. What paint code, or other info did you give your guy to make sure the color was accurate?

    My detailer has done a ton of these in recent years so he already knows the right color. But the first time I did it in 2014, I just gave him a grey Tesla center cap to help them match it.

    Was actually strongly considering satin/matte as well since my S and X have the matte black. But went with the grey cause I thought it would look better with the MC red.

    Not quite outside, but here's a side shot of it at my detailer.

    Wow! That color looks amazing on the red paint. Great color choice btw.

    Are you planning to do a chrome delete?

    I'm more impressed by the garage. It's so clean! Where are the leaves and grass clippings? Old sprinkler parts? Boxes of old housewares? Beat up sneakers?
    Did you just move in that home? Can I store stuff there?

    Lol. The leaves, dead bugs, cookie and cracker crumbs, and other unknown debris are piled up along the edges and corners out of camera view. ;)

    I'll be powder coating mine as well, but my 3 will be midnight silver metallic.

    Opinion on colors? I'm thinking either satin black or a red color

    Beauty for sure, and lots of toys you have! I'm considering sonic carbon 20" on MX, that gloss grey you have is what I'm looking for, rather than black.
