    Appointment is at 4 PM EST. My DS is already kind of chapped today about some unsavory customers I cannot wait to bust out this massive Tesla checklist on him LOL. Will post pics of the experience and maybe even a video of him losing patience.

    OK folks I am back at the house and here are my thoughts on pickup.

    I was the only getting a delivery so just me and the DS along with the other guy helping him.

    Delivery was good. They let me check out the vehicle first, we signed papers and on I went.

    I only found 1 thing and that was fixed on the spot. The back end had some rail dust from the train ride so they clayed it off and everything was fine.

    Interior was perfect.

    I was on the ground and fine tooth combed the vehicle it didn't have anything wrong I could tell. Drive home was perfect as well.

    I would offer a bit of advice. These vehicles travel by rail. I had rail dust on my Raptor and knew to look for it. Make sure you look really closely. Its super easy to get off with a clay so they can handle it while you do papers.

    It’s basically rust colored specs stuck right on the surface of the paint. Won’t come off with a wash but clay does the trick.
