    I'm considering doing a chrome delete on my Deep Blue Metallic. Does anyone have a picture of this combo?

    Looks great Sm4llz! I live just outside of Denver, do you have anyone you can recommend? Also is yours dipped or wrapped?

    Thanks Erik

    Mine was wrapped in vinyl by Elite Auto Salon in Colorado Springs. They did an amazing job.

    Thanks for the info!

    A little off topic, are those the 19" T-Sportline rims? I was thinking about buying the same. Very nice choices on that one!

    Thanks Erik

    Good eye :) I ordered them back in November when they were back ordered and got them about a month ago. Huge upgrade from the stock wheels (which are now my winter wheels) imo.

    I did the carbon fiber lower chrome, door handles, and Avery red front and rear Tesla logos from rpmtesla. I ordered a lighted rear applique in deep blue metallic which should be in this coming week.

    .... Then I'm done.. Otherwise I'm sure my wife will question my sanity.

    Great choice of mods! Be sure to post pictures of the lighted rear applique, curious to know how you like it.

    Thanks. Erik

    I think you'll enjoy not having all those finger prints on the chrome.

    This is awesome! I'm getting chrome delete done for my Blue MX. This gives me a good idea of what to expect when I pick it up on Monday. Thanks for sharing!

    Quick question, what are the pros/cons of plasti-dip vs. wrap?

    I dont have personal experience, but been researching this...seems like Plastidip is easier and possibly DIY, but less durable. The chrome on the door that extends beyond the window tends to get a lot of wear closing the door.
