      Excellent find. Very nice to see this . This proves what you had reported by using magnets at reveal event.
      Also reassuring to see ultra high strenght steel the impact prone areas

      Would the battery enclosure be below the yellow high-strength steel layer and is their any word on whether there will be a titanium underbody shield?

        Anyone else notice the designers managed to get the old 3 bars symbol into the floor stamping? Nice homage

          It looks like most of the exterior is mild steel, so rust will be an issue, though body shops will be able to handle it.

          Trevor your magnet test of the door panels would mean the doors are likely aluminum, though that is a bit strange with the other body panels being steel.

          It goes to show just how long ago designs for the Model 3 were finalized. Tesla has been way ahead of where they seem to be for a long time.

          To my thinking, the most rust prone area is the rocker panels which appear to be steel, also the rear quarter panel.

                  Cute. It is also on the brake pedal. Of course, you have to remove the rubber cover to see it...
