    Just wanted to share a few detail images of my chrome delete job on the Model X. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied, but I'm still working with the detailer to fix a few snags on the vinyl around the folding mirror. The left mirror keeps ripping off when the mirror folds, while the right mirror seems to be fine.

    Anyhow, here are some images...

    Awesome, job, did you use vinyl for all of it? Where did you use the black satin paint? How long did the installer tell you the vinyl would hold up before it peels back?

    They mentioned up to 8 years that they've seen with customers who take good care of the car. I'd probably more reasonably expect 3-4 years. I also installed 3M Clear Bra in the front (bumper, side panels, hood, and mirrors) and I'm hoping that'd last longer.

    The only satin black paint used was for the rear (for the blade with TESLA lettering, and the 90D lettering). Elsewhere, it was all vinyl.

    Some tint on the side windows and your car is perfect.

    If you don't mind telling me, how much did the chrome delete run you?

    This is awesome! I have some specific questions on the products used, prep, and managing overspray. How do I PM you?
