It’s often we have the pleasure of working on Tesla’s Model S’s, Model X’s and soon to be Model 3’s; but it’s a rarer occasion to work on a modified Tesla owned by one of the most enthusiastic people on fire for Tesla as our client. This combination makes every appointment truly a welcoming and exciting experience every time.
The agenda this time was to do a “chrome delete”. This is a fancy (or maybe not so fancy) term used in the industry to black-out chrome trim by using either satin, matte, or gloss black vinyl material to give the vehicle a more aggressive look. All window trim, mirrors, door handles and front bumper/rear bumper trim is chrome on the Tesla.
We also removed the front “T” and rear emblems to paint black, since wrapping these in vinyl won’t yield the result we or our client were after because the material just doesn’t comply to such intricate and small surfaces.
Mid process, the mirror is wrapped, door trim and door handle are not.
Front grille and lower bumper pieces wrapped. T painted, ready to install red T over top
The transformation, although subtle, made a huge impact on the appearance of this car. We & our client couldn’t be happier with the results!
