Just a PSA that Tesla now sells a Model S/X/3 Paint Repair Kit in their online store for $55.
Damn, no white...
That is a bit strange. I wonder why?
Does anyone know if this will work on a 3 to 4 inch long thin scratch?
+1 Have a nice little scratch in the middle of the runner. Luckily I dont see it really.
Yikes, I'm not sure "little" is an appropriate description...
That sucks. Did someone key you?
Now you have made me sad
I believe that would be more of a gouge than a scratch.
That said, with some filler and some patience during the repair, especially given where it is, you'll probably not be able to see that it was ever there.
Out of curiosity, what caused that?
Dr ColorChip PPSW for Tesla's Pearl White. I had a similar gouge randomly appear in my passenger sill. Was either Mobile Service or a co-worker. Will go take photo of result.
Edit - paint code is on the sticker on the driver's door.
Mine was all the way down to the primer. This photo is after two coats of Dr ColorChip. Will probably do at least one more.
How's the final finish? Did the color match well?
No Multicoat Red either.
Haven't done another coat .Probably this weekend.
Well, I want to think no, since the GOUGE (yeah, thats probably appropriate) is in a spot that is not noticeable.
I think mine is to the primer too.
THANK YOU - will be ordering. Do you think this is sufficient to for this or do I need extra filler?
Should be enough but will probably require multiple coats. Mine is particularly tricky since it is on a convex surface. Be patient and let it dry 10-15 minutes before using the solvent to level off. If doing multiple coats I would wait at least several hours or even a day. I tried to do multiple coats within 30 minutes and the solvent in the paint affected the prior coat - effectively undoing it.
I ordered the paint kit. It came with a lot of fancy accessories...and not paint.
Been trying to contact ANYONE that can help me with this. Of course I emailed them back, but no reply and it's been a week.
I just want the paint I ordered and paid for.
