    Hi Folks just wanted to post my experience with Ron over at Custom Calipers and Wheels ([email protected] - 702296-3704). He did an amazing job to give the rotors a new silver sheen (thus covering all the rust/scratches from 5 years and 55k miles of abuse) in addition to a factory-level caliper painting. Photos of the process attached. The whole job was reasonably priced and he is mobile in So. Cal. IMG_2805.jpeg 2.jpeg 3.jpeg 4.jpeg 5.jpeg 6.jpeg 7.jpeg

    Was curious how he supported the vehicle. Did you see?

    At least one photo seems to show a jack stand somewhere besides a lifting point.

    He jacked it up from the standard points and put the stands at the base/ strongest points of the control arms.

    Very cool done!
    And can you tell us what paint was used and what was inscribed with Tesla, stencil or sticker?
    Thank you.

    Guys Spence Tire in Toronto does red calipers for Tesla’s!

    Some special on until April 8th for anyone near or decent driving distance to the Greater Toronto area.

    His work is incredible. I’ve had my 90D done and was a professional job!

    Looks awesome did he disconnect or disassemble any part od the calipers or was it purely a total wrap up of the car without any disassembly?
