    I'm going to have my model 3 wrapped soon but already mounted the front plate holder, the one that comes with the car and has three stripes of sticky tapes. Anybody has experience of removing it? Just tear it down? Will not damage the paint right? And to mount it back up, buy another three stripes of sticky tapes?

    Yes, No. Yes. Check Amazon for some automotive double side tape. You might want to buy the special headed screw socket to remove the two Torx-like-but-not-Torx screws. Go to Shapeways.com and search Tesla to find it. About $14.00
