I wish Tesla offered a non chrome option.
An awesome forum member/ Tesla buddy autoflexed my ride recently, giving it the murdered out look as well. The best part about the process is that it is all completely reversible.
GRYGHTS - did you do mat black or glossy black? I am doing the black out next week and I love the way your car turned out
i'm getting my car wrapped in February. We're going to color-match the door handles and black out some of the chrome. i know the color isn't everyone's cup of tea but i have no reservations about that.
attached are the mockups.
i think i should do something with the rims at some point.
I have a mix of dip and vinyl wrap. Seems to be holding up fairly well after 4+ months. I have a little peel at the side mirrors from the motorized fold in. I generally disable the auto fold in mirrors bc of this, but occasionally (narrow street parking or tight spot) I manually fold them in. I will probably get the side mirror housing painted black at some point, but it otherwise still looks crisp.
You're such a Joker!
Seriously though, check out @wk057 as he has a beautifully wrapped dark purple Model X (and changed his screens so the car is the right color on the screens.
Anyone with a white Model S have done the blackout treatment?
Here's an old shot of mine after I did the chrome delete but before I completely wrapped the car in blue satin chrome. I loved this panda/storm trooper look and I'll happily go back to it when I get tired of the current wrap or it gets beat up too bad.
Got my handles done with 3M gloss black wrap yesterday. I don't like the full "murdered" style but really disliked the chrome handles. I will now get the bottom strip done in the same colour as it now looks slightly out of place in my opinion.
What is the "Ludacris" Line?
Whats the cost of wrapping the whole car? Just trying to get an idea thanks
It really does vary due to several factors. The material ranges quite a bit depending on what type you choose. For example, in general, chromes are more expensive. In addition, chromes are a bit more challenging to install because if they get stretched/heated too much it affects the color, whereas other types hold up better to stretching/heating. Also, if you want the door jambs and such wrapped, they are more difficult and will add to the time. There are some that will disassemble a lot of the car to do a really detailed job and, of course, that will be more time consuming and cost more.
But to give a rough idea I'd say the material alone can range from $700-2000 (most probably fall around $1000-1500). And the installation can range from $1500-4000; higher end of this range for more difficult materials, wrapping door jambs, disassembling, etc. Hope that helps give you a bit of an idea. Find a good, local installer and they should be able to give you an estimate depending on what you want done.
Edit: Probably add about $500-800 to also wrap the trim. The above was my guess on how much it is to wrap the rest of the car.
I blacked out the lights too...makes a big impact on the look of the car.
I was just going to come in here and say I dont understand why people do matte black on a glossy colored car. Unless your car is wrapped matte it doesn't look right to have matte with glossy.
Glossy black looks the best. Very nice. Although I'd probably have that SpaceX text visible because SpaceX is awesome
Did that guy here on the forum do them for your car or did YOU paint them gloss black? Looks super duper sick. Tesla should have done that from the start!
Here are some unartful pictures of the black on red. I also did the hub caps. Everything was from www.rpmtesla.com I've been toying with the idea of blacking out the door trim and window sills as well as the mirror mounts. This is all the vinyl carbon fiber look.
Evan from Vision Auto Labs did them - the guy on the forum.
