Here are some more photos. Tires are GoodYear. Interior seats look cool with the white backing. You can see some of the panel gaps in the photos, they'll fix all that im sure. The hitch does not come out far enough to clear the top of the back hatch. hope they get the front lights more even around the edges. Extra pictures from the other parts of the museum, lots of cool cars from movies. The bollinger looks great too... I think Rivian Truck is DOA honestly... The CyberTruck is roughly the size of the F150. I tried to measure with my shoe, walking like I did a sobriety test. 90 inches width, and probably 205 inches length, like F150. CyberTruck looks bigger though optically, because of the flat slanted front, and the back, so it just looks bigger, but probably same size as F150 screw cab. I think CT is great size, but they have got to upgrade/redesign the hitch...

How were the panel gaps on the Mach 5? 😝

I hope Elon shares some Cybertruck updates during the 9/15 Battery Day presentation. It’s pretty obvious that we are all salivating for more details regarding this amazing vehicle.

Sharp rear edges, not gonna fly with thos in production. It's, Beginning. To. Look. Ugly. Again, IDKW. The front end needs design work. Wanna see more lights? Tow gear? Graffiti bait!

So here is a question for the hive mind.

I noticed where the buttons are to release the tailgate / roll up the cover and I think this is a bad design choice.

Does anyone else see this as a potential issue? They appear to be made from plastic so could be broken easily if you are rough on the truck. I am also concerned about water/dirt intrusion into the switches themselves. I know you can seal switches but seals don't last forever.

To me it looks like the buttons themselves are under a rubber pad.

its difficult to know for sure without touching them, but the best pic I can find is this one.

I can see only one issue is a water and freeze. If water goes in and then freezes it would be pain in ass to open/close tailgate or roll-cover without remote control from phone or central screen

We know the vault will be heated....so my thought is that the temp of the vault itself may keep the controls clear of ice and snow

No worries on my end. I am confident that the brilliant Tesla designers and engineers will have this perfected by the time it reaches production in Q4 of 2021.

Has anyone gotten close up pictures of the possible mount points for the ladder rack or pop up tent? Is there anything visible from the top?
