    Today I detailed it with OPT Optimum No Rinse Wash and Wax and then did a FaceTime with @Michael Russo so he could get in his Midnight Silver fix ;)

    Very nice!! Can’t wait to see your finished product!
    I have a center console stealth xpel from RPMTesla waiting myself. :)

    @LUXMAN it is in my “HEAV3N” thread but it’s nothing major, just minor blemishes (a dent, a chip in the paint) getting fixed. I noticed them at delivery and Tesla picked my car up yesterday.

    Great Posts there @Lovesword
    I particularly agree with your description of the loaner. I hate it when I have to leave my LEAF and they give me ICE!

    Gorilla Wheel Locks
    Wireless charging puck added (see the DIY charging thread on this)
    Tint Added to sides and back glass and an “eyebrow” done on the windshield! The guys in Denton, TX did a great job. It was their first Model 3. Anyone in the area can msg me and I will give the details.
    I did not tint the top glass over the front seats. I am waiting to see how I like it and if I want it darker

    They were a little more difficult than the Video from Abstract Ocean showed. The plugs were a tight fit. But once they were in there, they look great!

    The drivers side was short but the passengers was quite a bit longer. That did make it harder on the drivers side but the real problem was that they did not side in easily as they do on the factory lights. I was screwing with the drivers door for a long time. The window dropped and raised like 50 times before I got that plug seated. Now that they are in they look great but if they ever fail I will just put the stock ones back in.

    Interesting — mine went right in without issue besides having to be careful not to lose the wiring back into the door.

    Yeah I contacted Abstract Ocean about it when I couldn't get them in on Tuesday and they said...


    Not sure what your VIN is, but ours is 74xx, and the plug still looks like the one below:

    [​IMG]

    Does yours look different? My only other hunch is that the pins inside might be slightly misaligned, causing the plug not to be fully inserted, the first question in our FAQ here provides some additional advice: Ultra-Bright Puddle Lights. We do test every light before they're send though, so there's a slim change one has a PIN mis-alignment, but two would be exceptionally unlucky.

    So I looked at the advice and fiddled with it. But the part on the light where the plug goes into is lightly different from the OEM. It was a tight fit on mine

    Ahhh I was so afraid of letting go of the wire that I didn’t pause to take a picture at that point.

    Oh, that is their picture from the Email. No, on the drivers side, I did not let go of the wire, but I don't think mine was in too much danger of being lost in the door as it wasn't wanting to slip away from me
