Who adds the background music to these videos? Geez Louise.
It comes with the uploading software.

At GM, the trucks went through the paint booth and then just kind of into a corral out in the open inside the factory. We didn't have a clean room. Things have probably changed a lot since 1998 though...

EDIT: The corral was basically so the trucks wouldn't be touched while the paint hardened up. I think there were between 10 and 20 trucks in there at all times.
And all those lovely VOCs are released into the factory air for the workers to breathe and get cancer from.

Anyone else notice that, across all these camo trucks, the pattern locations are identical on the vehicle?

Admitting I don’t know much about wraps, it leads me to otherwise conclude these aren’t from rolls of patterned wrap variously applied to the vehicle

they’re panel-specific sets made for the CT

would lead one to lean towards thinking Tesla is having these panel sets made as an accessory, as opposed to simply having some units wrapped at the tint shop

I can see this in the accessories shop... in fact they currently stock a $50 ppf package for the model y that covers the rear doors and fenders.

Have you got any info please on where in Palo Alto these are from? I'm cruising the streets of San Francisco as we speak to spot a CT!

It's why I came to the USA! (Sort of) :giggle: :giggle:

Pre cut and folded wrap peices would be the bomb!

Could even come in a flat pack DIY kit. Clean car, stick on, done.
Pick colour and finish, or even custom print and there'd be a million custom Cybertrucks out there then, which would be pretty epic.

They won't take my DeLorean trade-in, it's not on the list 😭
Why would you want to trade your Delorean though?

I liked your idea of towing the Delorean with the Cybertruck better. :cool:
