    I can't post to the video section and the Repairing a flooded model s thread is getting quite large, so I decided to start posting my series here.

    I will be rebuilding ANOTHER model S. this time an autopilot dual motor car.

    Checkout my journey starting with taking the donor car apart.

    That's a pretty mean droning sound coming from your motor. I had a 2013 loaner MS that sounded just like that.

    So, I'm curious after watching all these great videos and keeping up with your quest to rebuild Delores. You're able to pull parts from the donor cars that you won't need which means you could potentially sell the parts. Has that market become established yet? Or is this a really expensive (but equally fun) hobby? Seems like a little of both since posters have offered to buy some of the parts you pulled.

    I would assume there's no chance of actually generating a profit from the parts-pulling vs. the purchase price of the parts cars, however I seriously doubt you have a whole lot of competition and Tesla isn't exactly making replacement parts for the masses yet either... maybe you're on to something that could become kinda big! I surely hope so because what you post is more educating and entertaining than anything on Discovery these days.

    I'm actually watching the day 3 video as we speak on youtube and then I saw this thread. Love the dangerous way of doing this.

    Watch. Cringe. Look away. Watch.... keep up the videos, it's better than the majority of the tube content out there... except those Russian car crash videos...those are gold! :)

    1 hour and 30 minutes of salvage car banter, I was the guest star on an awesome show!
