After a long wait, R2D2 has arrived last night. I will document the mod journey here in this thread. This will be mostly DYI mods that anyone can do. I have an extensive list of items I want to add to the car and I will add them here as I install them.

And the first and probably the easiest, Tire stems, not crazy about this one, I like the look, but i think they stick out a bit too much.

I love those tire stems. I bought them and cancelled the order on Amazon though. If you read the reviews there are some Tesla owners that had them cause a bunch of damage to their tire stems and some had big bills to fix them. not trying to tell you what to do at all but the Amazon reviews scared me away.

The mats are from Ebay, seller name is automatszone, $189 for all 5 pieces is a great price and for the price these are good mats.

Valve_Stems.jpg After reading some of the feedback on the valve stem covers and one of them not fitting properly I decided to replace those and added this one. These are plastic versus metal and hopefully, there will not be any issues fusing to the stem. I will be switching to winter tire/rims so it should not be an issue.

Pedals.jpg Switch to aluminum pedals, they look amazing imo versus the stock black. The brake pedal you remove the stock and replace with new one, the accelerator you just slide on top. Very easy install.

Ok this is not exactly a car mod but this is where R2D2 lives, garage floor before and after, worth every penny, spend quality time with the boys installing it, definitely anyone can do. Garage_Floor_B4.jpg Garage_Floor_After.jpg
