Every other forum I am a member of has this thread, but it's is conspicuously absent here.

Well, it was:

In preparation for a road trip to LA, I have installed the ventilated seating I saw in another post here.

Previously I have had the paint protected with Opticoat Pro and Glassparency, sprayed a protective film onto the bumpers, added a digital license plate, added a trailer hitch, added a bike rack, and I purchased cooler/warmer cup off Amazon, but it's not here yet. Off to drive Highway 1 to LA with my electric bike, hopefully, we all make it back.

Hey Randy,

Can you provide a link to the seat cover? Thanks!

@Randy Spencer,

How well does the ventilated seat cover work? Are you satisfied/happy with it?

Were you driving HWY1 just south of Santa Cruz yesterday afternoon? Guessing there are not many red model 3's with a hitch mount bike rack right now. I was the blue 3 going in the other direction waving enthusiastically that you probably didn't see :).

On topic: Only mod thus far is removing air bag stickers and installing car seats.

What method did you use to remove the air back stickers?

What @Yonki said above. More info here.

I went pretty slowly and soaked the sticker and the edges with a paper towel soaked in the IPA. Took a couple minutes per sticker as some edges like to rip.

Looks fantastic without the stickers.

It is the correct dimensions for the seat, it stays in place, it is almost unnoticeable yet it breathes during sweaty times, like sitting in a glass-topped car in the LA sun. Not as quiet as the seats are by themselves. More comfortable than the beaded seat cover I have in the RV. Cheap! Arrived in time for the trip!

Honestly, I didn't see that many Model 3's in the few days of driving, but I did see the waving. Also saw another red on the trip and a white one in Bel Aire last night during rush hour. I actually get more attention for my Sprinter RV than I got driving the Model 3. It's odd, for most of the drive I don't think people know about the car, but then here and in LA people have gotten used to them.

I did get a thumbs up from a traffic cop at the same intersection as the white car. Also, a guy in Pismo Beach wanted to gab. I couple of women with their phone cameras out came towards me in Santa Barbara but then they took pics of the Corvette next to me... Really?
