    The project is hosted on Github with a GPL v3 Licence.

    If you have any questions here is the place to post them. This template should be compatible with most Vinyl Plotters on the market including commercial brands like Roland and Graphtec as well as consumer brands like Cricut and Silhouette.

    If you don't have access to a machine I also have complete kits available from Amazon with free Prime shipping for $29.50

    Most don't have a plotter. I wonder if someone could make a outline that can be printed on a standard letter paper where someone could use as a template and hand cut it.

    It more than just having a plotter, you need really good wrap, and sometimes only vinyl installers can get the good stuff. I really like the 3M Di-Noc Vinyl, but it is hard to get. Very forgiving.

    You can just print the PDF and use that as a template. It'll be harder than using a machine to do and not as perfect it but it's possible.

    I've been using 3M 1080 and Avery 900. The 3M matte black material sucks since it picks up scratches which is why I use Avery for the matte material. The Avery is much more forgiving and super easy to install it's just a bit thinner of a material.

    Hey man!
    Just saw your post on reddit. I developed one as well and shared it with the community here: Vinyl cutout files for Model 3. I'm going to send you the black console charge bar as well (under the wired charging compartment).

    I'd also love to work with you on developing more open source cutouts for the community. I have a bunch of 'prototype' files I've been working on and just have not had the time to fine tune (i.e door switches, door handles, steering wheel accents, auto pilot side camera covers, etc.). Would you be interested?

    Yes, that's why I made them open source so that multiple people could contribute to getting a complete set of templates available for the community to use.

    I already had mine from another vendor, but I printed this and it works perfectly. I may change mine up form time to time.

    Do you have the inside door handles or the dash?

    Waiting for a matte kit to show up on amazon since I don't have access to printer or vinyl.

    There is a box currently in transit to the Amazon FC with both Matte Black and Black Brushed Metal. It should be back in stock in 1-3 days unless Amazon slacks off checking it in.

    Just curious, all Tesla's have the carbon running from top left to bottom right. Why are all the companies making these kits top right to lower left? Not a big deal just an observation.

    I am now officially a TMC Vendor which means I can post links and answer questions and stuff.

    Here is the link to the Carbon Fiber Kit in Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Kenriko-Tesla-Model-Carbon-Console/dp/B07CZKWH83/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1527196813&sr=8-1&keywords=kenriko

    I'm sold out of the Matte Black and Brushed Black Metal. I have a few hundred kits currently either in transit or at the Amazon Warehouse waiting to be checked in. They should be back in stock on Amazon within the next couple days depending on how long it takes Amazon to check in the inventory.

    What are your thoughts on the pattern direction on the carbon fiber?

    My preference is bottom left to top right once I'm not as constrained with time and inventory I'll likely offer two variants of the kit with the pattern in both ways so that people can buy the one they prefer.
