    So as I started my 2013 holiday vacation I got a bit creative with a wall in my garage.

    Working at the local Tesla Store during construction I was able to get the full paint code and brand for the red used in the stores. The result is posted to instagram via this link.

    Instagram

    The paint code is Benjamin Moore 550X Pearl Base - Neon Red. I had my local sign guy cut me the logo from a vector file I found on brandsoftheworld.com.

    It looks too good to be in a garage! I guess the wife wouldn't allow it in the house? ;)

    Looks excellent. Did you use the vinyl directly or as a masking?

    It was a vinyl decal I had my local sign guy cut. I guess I could have masked it. I really wanted laser cut acrylic like the stores have.

    Thanks for the great Christmas gift, Brandon!!

    That is: I have been waiting for someone to post both the paint chip code AND where to obtain the Tesla T mark...for my own garage.

    So thanks again!

    On edit: doesn't one have to specify HOW MUCH "Neon Red" to put into the base white paint, or is "Neon Red" a specific blend already in their system?

    Very cool project.

    Do you have the file or whatever one would need to have a local shop make the same thing?
