    Got Oreo back from her powdercoating vacation.

    Looks phenomenal imo.

    The inspiration was the black onyx of the X wheels and not completely matte or semigloss.

    The guy did a great job and it completely changes the car. Now I’m battling a chrome delete or not as I think it breaks it up nicely but I’ve always wanted a blacked out Tesla.

    (Disregard the dirt lol)

    Hmmmmmmmm

    Wheels look FANTASTIC dude. Looks great as is! Personally I'd keep the chrome, but a chrome delete would be sweet as well.

    Yea leaning leaving it as is as i enjoy the small contrast that the chrome offers. Fun thing about the delete though is that i can take it off eventually if I do decide to go that way as well.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Family friend that is local in Frisco that has extensive Model 3 experience.

    He has done both of our Model 3s and is fantastic at his craft.

    I spoke at the annual Solar Congress in Charleston, WV as a solar homeowner and an EV owner this past weekend. The Civic Center Coliseum allowed two EVs to park near the conference rooms and it was my car and one other. A third EV showed up and parked nearby later in the day. All Model 3s. :)

    That is very brave of you to do in Coal Country. We need more brave people.

    Look what I have waiting (besides me) on my Model 3. Did my ELR about 2 years ago and here it is at about 1½ years. A lot of work but well worth the results and is FAR superior to waxing every 2 weeks. So less work overall.

    Did you have any high spots you missed when buffing. I have one or 2 as my garage wasn’t lit to my liking but was all I had. Didn’t notice them until it was too late. Best way to fix it?

    Pro tip for anyone doing this themselves. Very worth it, not too hard just takes a long time but make sure you have GOOD lighting to make sure all product is buffed off.

    Yes, I had 2 drops that I didn't notice until after. Use isopropyl alcohol in spray bottle and clean microfiber. Took a little rubbing but came off and then applied 2 new coats to the door.
