I requested the silver scuff plate but was told they have the black one.
I may just take you up on that. Let's see on the 19th what they actually delivered.
Yes start at the back and they are not hard to replace. Start slow at the back and they use some mighty stiff Velcro but you can coax it off. No hidden clips but it does slip into the lower dash price.
Ok. Let me know or PM me, also if you need any help with the install or questions.
As for the removal of the sill mentioned above, that's correct. Start from the back. One thing I will point out is that if you want to preserve your original sills, be VERY VERY careful when pulling up with any amount of pressure. You really have to feel the whole thing out. Using different types of pressure, quickness, etc. The material the sills and door panels are made of, well, let me put it they're non-forgiving. Any stress point they get they crack like an eggshell. I've seen members crack their door panels before. I removed my own sills myself, but my driver's side was already cracked which they do there from getting in/out. So it was a good one to experiment with. I pulled the passenger side off which was easier since I could see where all the velcro mounting spots were. That's where you need to pull up with a little more force. So I was able to preserve that one, ended up selling it to a member here who had a cracked passenger side sill so that worked out well.
Ugh, I'd kill for the tan lower dash. I've just got tan seats and the middle of the doors. And no CF upper sills. I just want to replace the bottom sills, if that looks good. My stock plastic pieces aren't looking so great.
Hey josh-io or Curt, any update? I just ordered a set from Tesla. I'm actually agnostic on the silver vs black. I've been fine with the silver on the base ones (I rarely wear black-soled dress shoes) but they're developing "pimples". It hasn't bothered me enough to order the CF ones. My wife drove my car yesterday and said that I MUST replace those door sills, they're embarrassing. Permission granted!
My only fear now is that I've walked onto a slippery slope and more CF will be ordered.....
My interior is completely black. When I get my sills installed I'll post some pics.Does the carbon fiber sill set look good in an otherwise black stock interior?
Is that the Elise CF center binnacle? If so how does the weave look compared to the CF sills and rest of the car? The silver accent on the sills work and look great with your silver interior.
