    So far I’ve done chrome delete around the doors, side cameras, and handles. Front bumper and mirrors are next.. spent about 3 hours doing both sides. Wife can drive to work with symmetrical finishes.

    Personally I left the Tesla logo chrome to have a little contract. Otherwise it just looks like a blended abyss.

    I’ve PlastiDipped the front logo back in the winter and it looks great, shows more of a larger T in the front bumper, this time I will chrome delete the rest of the front bumper chrome including Fog Lights spikes.

    I had my car professionally chrome deleted and they still had to redo the mirrors after the initial job. The mirrors seem to be a huge pain.

    Looks great, at the beginning my wife wanted chrome delete with RoseGold. I couldn’t find good quality materials, didn’t trust the one from Amazon. So now she’s over the RoseGold and we’re both into black on white or black on red.

    I’m not even sure how long my job gonna last.. but the idea of changing it whenever you wish is great. Every year can do something else.

    Here is the S with partial work done, I kept the hardest for the end, hopefully I will finish it all over this weekend (weather permitting)
    It’s actually getting easier from trim to trim and less stressful cutting edges. For sure gotta use painters tape on the panels to prevent the wrap sticking hard and avoiding scratching the paint when cutting edges.
