Gotta watch out of the GM submarine fleet.

I don’t think they are sneaking 40 shipping containers worth of Gigapress in under the cover of night.

Also, I thought the drones were able to peak into the GP area. Has that view been cut off?
I'm guessing the larger pieces of the gigapress will be lowered into the building through an opening in the roof.

There are still windows available for peek-a-boo, albeit with limited visibility.

Considering we are talking 22 shipping containers, not sure you would be able to 'sneak' those from the Houston port to Austin at the Tesla factory and go unnoticed... but since it does break down into shipping containers, no holes in ceiling nor wall needed, lost of entrances that would accommodate them.

What they need is a Tesla Semi to run things around inside the factory, moving such around internally.

Elon just tweeted this:

What does cybertruck body mean? Front, rear or entire body?
In this case, I think Cybertruck body means the hub caps.
OF COURSE IT'S THE ENTIRE BODY!!!
But for real, at this point it could be the door frame (which is much thinner than 3mm), the door panels, body panels, WTFrunk, the bed, tailgate...a lot of stuff needs fabricatin'. I think we're going to need a couple of 9T's, maybe four or five 8T's. Giddy up!

Actually, if they fly early in the early morning the view is extremely good, albeit that they cannot see very deeply into the plant because of any obstructions.

However, won't fly too close to avoid banning from Austin. No more window peering for now.

How soon before companies can buy anti-drone autocannons?

Seems like something ripe for some inventor to cook up. Nothing which might be lethal, just a net with some sacks or something similar.

That really seems like overkill that would have trouble hitting any of the small retail drones.

An automated one would be able to get away with a smaller net since it will have better aim.
