Just get a torch, a friend's CT to try it on first and go at it like there is no tomorrow:

I prefer to receive CT stock and wrap when I wish if I wish.
I wrapped the hood of my 09 Passat in graphite look and people love and also don't believe it is a wrap.

I hate to break it to you but, he never said black SS, im not sure where you picked that part up....

he said you could get it in black...no specification as to how it would be black, wrap or other.

Yes, thinking hard on Rhino Lining mine. That could work in many ways. Just have it professionally done for longevity, and I'm good. That's the main thing I'm interested in, is longevity of whatever is on the outside. peace

I agree... Other colors of metal all the way through would be cooler.... Or an easy way of fixing the coating... Like "apply this chemical and wait 15 mins to absorb and then wipe off the excess"

I just want the dark SS color Elon talked about, if it's through and through. I don't want a scratch to show through with bright SS across the dark. Blah

I expect it to be solid dark SS, and very much hope so. I could see like a cool slightly darker than the SS, pic of something significant, on the huge flat hood - maybe a soft spinning/burning earth.

There are far too many people that don't believe that we're having such a negative impact on earth today. They think there are no consequences for their actions, and that saddens me. Though I try to live life in a happy and positive way. peace

"You will be able to wrap it any color or pattern" - Elon Musk

"You will be able to" does not mean Tesla will offer it as an option. 3M may or may not be making wraps because some dude on Twitter said something. Those wraps may or may not be offered at the factory. There seems to be a lot of jumping-to-the-conclusion-one-desires.

I desire Elon to be saying is that you if you buy a Not a Flamethrower, then you can shrink wrap your truck. :D

I’ll take the invisibility cloak wrap please. I’ll have to add it to the windows and cover the tires with it somehow.

Are you guys concerned that wrapping is labor intensive and difficult to automate?

The wrapping in China is done at service centers, not at the factory, for whatever that's worth.

I still have trouble imagining Tesla paying enough Texans to wrap 1000 or 10,000 trucks per week indefinitely 🤷‍♂️

I doubt they will ever be building 10k a week at one factory. And I doubt most people will want a wrap. I, for one, don't. And I assume Tesla will charge a premium price for their wrap. If you do want a wrap, you will probably be able to get it for much much less if you shop around for a third party shop.

So I don't think it will be a problem.

automation for the CT would be rather simple since its all straight lines , but i agree with you...it will likely be a service center item, and cost will be premium
