    Hi all,

    I know there are a few vendors out there that provide pre-cuts, but they're a bit pricey.
    I'm planning to wrap just a few areas like the Center Console, Wood trim/ dashboard, and door handles. Has anyone done the measurements, has layouts, which material did you use, etc that you can share?

    I don't have the car yet. Configured on 3/2 and still waiting for my VIN.

    Thanks!

    search YouTube;
    - don't limit to Tesla cars, any car will do
    - look for similar climates ?
    - see what suppliers have to offer in instructions/training video's too

    Thank you guys!

    I'm frugal, not picky at all and just want some basic protections. It sounds like a fun project since I have plenty of free time.

    1. Ceramic coating (per YouTube, it'll take 4-6 hours). Looks pretty straight forward.
    -- Need to do this first thing after getting the car. Estimated mat cost is 150.00
    2. Tinting (4 windows and possibly the roof) -- going to leave this job to the pro.
    3. Vinyl wrapping (console, dash). Estimated mat cost is $30.00.
