    This one may sound a little dumb and/or inane, but.......

    How long does it typically take from order to delivery at your house?

    I'm trying to time it around a vacation and want to make sure I'm home, without leaving a box labeled Tesla sitting on my steps for a week.......


    TIA

    mine was under a week - but on the west coast probably helped that.

    Cool. Thanks.


    Next up: I'm searching for an antique gas pump that I can alter. I just want the cabinet, so I can mount my Wall Connector inside and feed the hose through where the gas hose would have gone.

    They're expensive though. :(

      Whenever I've ordered items from Tesla that are above a certain amount, they always need a signature...Seems like both of those shipments to me have been at FedEx waiting for me, since I work during the day when delivery was attempted. It doesn't take long for the shipment to arrive from Tesla after ordering, but I am just a few hundred miles away...

      Thanks for the input.

      I've ordered it already. It may seem somewhat premature, but I want some time to explore my options for installation. It will be outdoors, on the corner of my house. Getting the 48A breaker (to handle 40A load...US electrical code) won't be a problem. But as I alluded to above, I want to do something similar to this:

      get one of these cabinets, and remove all the "guts", restore the finish of the cabinet, mount the wall connector inside, and feed the cord out through where the gas hose and nozzle would normally go. then, add Tesla logo and branding to it.

      Sadly, even the pump in this picture, in its current condition, is $1,000........

        @Tesla2ElectricBoogaloo I absolutely love your idea of using an old gas pump! Although I think there is no need to restore the finish, that old worn paint looks amazing

          I was thinking that too, but I was also thinking of restoring the finish and painting it multicoat red to match the car/Tesla's branding.
