Tesla Offer frunk kit

So, having ordered on Thursday, the kit shipped on Friday and arrived this Monday morning. Bearing in mind that was over the weekend, that’s pretty nippy shipping. Took a couple of hours to fit, taking my time. The kit comes in a nice box and is well laid out. No instructions in the box, so you have to look them up on their website, which points you to a Youtube video. The instructions are ok, however they do skip ahead in the video and don’t show you exactly how to mount some of the boxes or how to route the various cables, so I had to improvise. Also, the latest version of the kit is slightly different to that shown in the video, however it’s not a big deal. The Homelink plug has been removed as well as the plug for “future use”. I’ve uploaded a couple of videos opening and closing the bonnet (I refuse to call it a frunk!) using Shortcuts on my Apple Watch. Had to make it two videos as in a display of spectacularly poor timing one of my neighbours decided they just had to leave at that very moment so I had to move out of the way!

Siri never hurries! My commands usually end with “there’s a problem”, but they always work anyway
nice job done

Opening is a little slow as there’s a handful of wake commands in there. The idea is I do the command on the way to the car so hopefully it should open as I arrive. The boot is similar.

Looks good! :)

As a slight aside, does anyone else find that the rubber things at the top left and top right corners of their bonnet catch when it opens? Tesla "fixed" mine once by trying to attach some sticky double sided tape to it, but it hasn't really worked. I wonder if the part has improved since...

Rubber things? I think they may have “fixed” them by removing them, altogether!

This is what I mean:

Once they’ve been caught once and bent back with the bonnet opening they’re never right again.

It’s a bit #firstworldproblems as issues go, but it annoys me.

Not really the right thread for an update, but meh.. Tesla came out and replaced my whole scuttle today. The rubber bits photographed now sit under the wing, which looks more like how it should've been at the start. Can anyone confirm that's what theirs looks like?

(means I can now order this kit myself without worrying about it catching every time I open it)
