Internal email from Elon Musk on Cybertruck.

Due to the nature of Cybertruck, which is made of bright metal with mostly straight edges, any dimensional variation shows up like a sore thumb.
All parts for this vehicle, whether internal or from suppliers, need to be designed and built to sub 10 micron accuracy.
That means all part dimensions need to be to the third decimal place in millimeters and tolerances need be specified in single digit microns. If LEGO and soda cans, which are very low cost, can do this, so can we.
Precision predicates perfectionism.

Elon, please provide buyers the design drawings of the Cybertruck, so we won’t hear the sales team say it’s within tolerance. So they can now be challenged.

Thanks Mr. X

If all of the CTs parts were either soda cans or legos this would be an easy command to obey.
To find out who is responsible for QA we need to look at those drone shots to see which employees come out with less hairs on their head than they went in with.

Note to self: Don't forget digital calipers for CT pickup.
I can only hope/assume this is a joke, but after seeing years of crazy Model 3/Y delivery stories, extensive checklists and similarity psychotic behavior you never do know. 🤔

But really if you show up with calipers I kinda hope/expect you to get stabbed with them. 🤷🏻‍♂️

let’s be real, this could be one of the most difficult tasks to achieve. 10 micron…. it’s a truck, with 2 million orders…

let's be patient, let's be patient!!!!! ;) 🤙
If you must say it twice, then you're not patient
Under normal conditions I'd agree with you.... But in this case, I'd permit an additional "let's be patient" for each year that has been in the waiting. In which case we might actually need a few more.
