    So this now day 4 of the project and the car is coming together nicely. The question is do I also cover the b pillar or leave it shiny glass black? Opinions please...

    Hard to tell from the pictures. Gut instinct it'd probably look better matching the other parts you de-chromed, but hard to tell from that pic.

    What wheels are those? Brand and size info. Those are some of the nicest 3rd party rims I have seen on a Tesla. They match the de-chromed look nicely.

    @reed: I like them too. They are 22x9 but I'm selling them as I think I like the 21 staggered forged wheels better. I bought them from A&E and I'm looking to do the t sport line wheels. I have them up on eBay where you can see more pics. http://bit.ly/1gMcOyy

    I’ve never seen that pillar wrapped in something matte. Or wrapped in anything. And IMO there is a reason why that is... :wink: It will just break the flow of the side glass surface. And also: That is keeping in mind that there seem to be a lot of customized Model Ss out there…
