    Spent this morning installing some DIY items to my model 3. Did a 3M carbon fiber overlay on the center console, covered the exterior door handles in matching carbon fiber, and covered the front 2 door sills with more matching carbon fiber. Also went ahead and installed the wind reducer around the moon roof panel of glass. 1DA2EA44-FE5C-46D8-A14E-F13133416C7D.jpeg 2F18B82B-0165-449E-9756-05C06A920866.jpeg 988FD9E0-54F8-489D-A30F-BB1665165202.jpeg 26ABD923-69A6-4FBB-A78C-89C7C523FDB7.jpeg

    Looks great! Where did you get the carbon fiber? Pre-cut from somewhere, or did you just cut yourself?

    Thanks.

    First time I've heard of this. Is this a common mod?

    Not certain how common it is but for around $25 it was well worth the money

    We saw Elon mention that they changed the glass to recuse wind noise. Am curious to see how this mod pans out.
    Any details you can share? Maybe start a DIY thread?
    [Edit: just saw the video above, nevermind.]

    The carbon fiber on red looks really great. Now am thinking I shouldn't have changed mine to obsidian black :-|
