Thanks, so much. I love the car and the garage project was really fun. Getting a bit off-topic, but here's some information for you. I attached the top of the paint can with the color codes from Behr. Home Depot special. :) I think it's just a touch too orange, but I was trying to match the floor tiles as much as possible as opposed to getting the exact Tesla shade of red, although I ended up getting pretty close.

I did the 'T' by hand, actually:

1) Printed out the tesla logo on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper
2) plotted the vertices on a grid
3) scaled it up to the appropriate size
4) drew the vertices on the wall
5) Connected the vertices that were straight lines
6) Took my time and taped off the curved connection / arcs freehand
7) And this is the magic step. After you tape off the design, paint over with the base coat to seal the tape.
8) Then paint over with the opposite color.

There is information on this site with some high-res graphics.
