    So in response to some threads (one of which being the P85D having reduced front trunk space) ....

    What do you keep in your frunk

    Me?

    Two foldable lawn chairs (the ones that slide into a bag)
    my power inverter
    Two bleacher cushions (for when we go see my daughter's college football games)
    emergency clothes bag (socks, shorts, shirt) in a gallon ziploc bag (thank you military training)
    one heavy duty 50' 110 extension cord
    and I am not sure how the baseball bat got there.

    Nothing. I don't use it. Put everything (charging adapters, UMC, tire pressure gauge, etc.) in the "well" in the back. I suppose if I had the rear facing seats things might be different but as it stands right now I don't like the hand prints that get on my black hood when closing the hood using the approved method.

    Nothing for me as well. The occasional grocery bag and clothes when on a trip.

    Emergency reflector triangle and folding shovel in the microwave; a Pelican case with quadcopter in the main frunk bay. Lots of space left for whatever.

    It actually aggravates me when i have to open it to show Tesla noobs the frunk space. I'm thinking to myself the whole time "...damn it I'm gonna have those greasy palm prints on my hood..." LOL

    Tesla could fix that by having an electronic closing/latching mechanism on the front like on the rear hatch...

    Paint armour compatible detail spray works just fine for me at car shows. Also I didn't make the mistake of getting a dark colour :)

    While I rarely use the frunk due to seeing the dreaded crease starting to form, when I do I grab my small microfiber cloth jammed up in the space under the touch screen. If I need to open the frunk, I just grab the cloth and use it when closing. It;s just big enough to allow me to put my hands in the proper positions. Also very helpful on a hot sunny day. The dark green can get painfully hot for bare hands.

    As for what I keep in the frunk, things I almost never need so I don't have to open it...

    -an insulated bag for the very rare occasion I get cold groceries and don't drive directly home

    -two oversized black towels and short flat bungee cords that perfectly wrap around the headrests, holding the towels on the seats. If for some reason I'm totally filthy/sweaty/wet and dont want to nasty up the seats, I can just cover them. This has only happened once but I was damn glad I had a towel to cover the seat.

    -a basketball
    -charging adapters
    -any tools and supplies I'm currently using while modding my car. (drill, wires, quick connectors, etc...) Much easier than putting them away after every use.
    -shovel and lye

    Just kidding on the shovel and lye.

    A tire repair kit, w/air compressor, patches, and high quality tire pressure gauge. I do use it for groceries when I have a usual load of 3-4 bags, which fits nicely without worrying about the eggs flying across the rear trunk. I also love using the frunk as a conversation starter.

    Came in very handy when I traveled with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter, but other than that one trip it has not been used in 2 years and I do not leave anything in it.

    I keep a duffle with my bee suit and gloves, and a box with all my beekeeping equipment. Don't want the smoker stinking up the inside of the car!

    Tesla Frunk organizer with Tire inflation kit inside with a few microfiber cloths. The Cargo net creates a tightly held elastic net between the frunk organizer, where I have some "Invisable Glass" cleaner for inside glass and some Rain-x glass cleaner for exterior windows and panoramic roof and a few more microfiber cloths. I love finding really beautiful places to clean my windows, the antithesis of cleaning them the old way, at a gas station!
    Btw, does the Tesla Frunk Organizer fit in the new D frunk?
