    Here some of mine. By next week I should have red calipers and powder coated rims as well. Sig has a list of my mods, also have a cubby drawer not listed.

    Thinking of debadging one of these days as well.

    Same stuff as both of you...a pic of the red calipers powder coated, same pic as thumbnail but larger. Did do PPF in front and rockers, Crystalline tint and sound stuff starts in a month or so. Been thinking about maybe swapping out for some black arachnids, but who knows, just bored haha.

    I’m actually going to have the calipers vinyl wrapped. Since the friction brakes aren’t used too often I’m not too worried about heat and they’re removable in case I run into any warranty issues.

    The blackout on the rear appliqué is just plasti dip which I did myself. Same with the lettering and logos I did in a volcanic red plasti dip. I think the appliqué could have come out better and one of these days I’ll get around to re-doing it but you have to get pretty close to see the imperfections.

    The crystalline is great. I've driven loaners and always notice how much extra heat comes through the windows when the sun is out. Can't remember exactly but think I went 50 or 60 on the sides and back since I was doing the front windows and wanted it more conservative and also wanted them all uniform. The front windshield is a 70 so it's hardly noticeable visually but still great at blocking the heat. These are the crystalline numbers so it's roughly the percentage of light it lets through.

    Sig is already updated...maybe it takes time to show?

    Paid $600 for the powder coating...I know I could have found it for less but wanted to support this local business that has been very active and generous to the local Tesla clubs.

    Hmm, I don't know. It still shows as silver:
    They do look nice and $600 sounds like a good price. We're thinking of doing that with ours.

    Maybe it's a local caching thing?

    Oh, I'm referring to the text "silver arachnids" in your signature, not the avatar picture! :)

    I am thinking about getting Arachnids and powder coating them as well. What is the color code you used for your wheels? Having a hard time picking a match close to the OEM grey wheels.
