Model S/X/3 Paint Repair Kit
This looks identical to the Dr. Color Chip system..I have used them for years on our 2 Model S...all good.
Of course their not selling Pearl White...
Or multi coat red. At $55 I hope it works as well as the demo video did.
Dr Color Chip has the multi-coat red...I have used it for years. Just use the Tesla color code on the driver's door jamb sticker.
The same kit from Dr. Color Chip is $64.95, so Tesla is giving us a deal. I just bought a kit from the source for multi-coat red.
One caveat: the touch-up paint can mar the clear coat adjacent to the repair. I fixed a chip on my driver A-pillar, and I'm going to use some polishing compound ( Griot Garage) and a buffer to clean up the area around the chip repair. Also, I didn't leave the touch-up paint on for five minutes, more like two. I'll try five on the next chip fix.
My kit arrived today in a bag of some kind of debris, is that normal?
Mine is arriving today. Will let you know if I get the special "Boring Company surprise" in the package.
??? Absorbent material in case of a leak of paint??
Tesla's kit is 0.5 oz. paint and 1 oz. blending solution. The $64.95 Dr. ColorChip kit that I see has 1 oz. paint and 4 oz. blending solution. You can get cheaper kits from Dr. ColorChip, too.
(Though now I see Tesla offers free shipping, so that sweetens the pot.)
Well, sadly no "Boring Co. Surprise" for me... got a clean package. They must be busy making those flamethrowers now and temporarily suspended the dig... Will keep my fingers crossed for the t-shirts arriving tomorrow.
Does anyone know if this will work on a 3 to 4 inch long thin scratch?
debris? probably just some scrap they had lying around
