    Well, I'm nearing the end of my mods with She-Ra. Like I said before, you should have got the red!
    Remaining items include red calipers, UP Moderate spring kit, and MAYBE a carbon fiber spoiler.
    For those who are still waiting, continue to wait and don't give up. This car is a blast and you wont regret it.
    But for now, feel free to drool over She-Ra..

    Enjoy!

    What company did you buy the dash wood carbon fiber wrap piece from?

    I would be interested in seeing a close up of the ends and corners of that wrap to see how it looks.

    Got it off Amazon. This was my first time doing anything vinyl so it’s probably not the best. But I’m fine with it.
    Did the chrome delete as well to save some pennies. Hopefully I can finish the caliper paint job this weekend.
    FYI, I removed the dash/wood piece completely out of the car so it was easier to work with. Get a heat gun too if your going to play with vinyl.

    Sorry I’m not sure what images you’re looking at. I’m on my phone and maybe can’t see it. Any boobies?

    I'm sorry, don't want to be a hater, but that car is beautiful, EXCEPT for those wheels. Gold??? Please tell me this is a joke.

    It’s bronze. Gold wasn’t for me either.
    No need to apologize. We all have different taste. Mine is just different than your.

    I think the bronze looks sick (the good kinda' sick) with the red. What wheels are those? And are they 20s?

    Is that typical to paint calipers in place? I would be concerned about the actual calipers -- the pistons -- getting paint on them. I don't think I would paint them without total disassemly.

    Did you clearcoat before or after the vinyl?

    Good rim choice! That's what I would get if I was to replace mine. Any plans of lowering?

    I think most shop that do a quick turn around does it this way. If I had more time in my hands a complete disconnect would be best.

    After the vinyl. You only need to clearcoat to keep the vinyl from falling apart.

    Ordered the moderate springs from Unplugged Performance awhile back. Unforetunately it’s on back order.

    Nice..how long did it take you to get your rims? Also they were made custom to fit the Model 3 right?
