    Wanted to share a few pics of the wrap job just finished on the wife and I's Model X.

    Was done in 3M Gloss Black Rose. It's a lightly pearlescent and metallic looking material. Apparently it was a bit more difficult to apply than the solid colors as orientation had to be maintained better.

    It came out very nicely. It looks pretty stunning in person. The photos I took after completion today don't do it justice. It was quite cloudy, and is expected to be for the next several days. :(

    I do plan on swapping the wheels with the 22" black Model X rims at some point in the near future.

    And the photo that people here will probably appreciate the most:

    :)

    Haven't gotten the rear emblems back on yet. Will work on that soon.

    Edit: Crap, accidentally posted in S section instead of X section. Have asked mods to move the thread.

    Love the color on the displays. I'm not up on X stuff, so I had not realized you had also hacked your X.

    Edit: I should add that it looks damn good on the car, too!

    Very cool! That color is amazing. It's like a bing cherry on wheels. Like it a lot.

    Was it the WarGames reference or the replacement car graphics that we were supposed to appreciate? ;)

    Where did you get it wrapped? I'm picking up my S in Raleigh in a month or so.

    wk057, who has root access, figured out how to do the hack. See the thread "Glossy Yellow Wrap Completed" Post # 64 on March 16, 2016 by wk057. Mere (unrooted) mortals are out of luck.:rolleyes: (I have no idea what this emoji means but I like the color).

    Was this the X that took an inadvertent launch into a building wall?
