    Started to mod my wife's Model S this week. Pearl White on Black Leather 85 with Pano, Tech, Sound & Air. Consigned her car to be a T Sportline demo car. :wink:

    They sent me a pic of the brake calipers today. Awesome color. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.

    And they say that newspapers are a dying format. :cool:

    Are those going to be peeking out from the 21" or 19" rims? Or perhaps a 3rd party rim?

    Taking off the bumper is a little extreme for that paint job -- what else is being modified?

    3m crystalline tint all around including the roof. Got my rockers painted pearl white. Got Left and Right outer part of diffuser painted pearl white. Part of the nose cone painted in pearl white. Wrapped all the chrome on the car in satin black. Thinking of painting the seat backs also....but that'll have to wait.

    Taking the car out to Hawthorne design facility tonight. Anyone else going?!:smile:

    looks great with all the chrome wrapped with black. Do they offer that service to others? I am interested in doing the same.

    Where did you get the tesla stickers for your calipers? I'm having the hardest time tracking down these stickers, so I can paint my calipers.

    thanks.

    had a vinyl graphics store copy them and size them to the oe spec. being the center of the auto accessory culture, i guess it's pretty common to find accessory shops offering this in so cal.
