I just called, but I did not get to speak with the Lyndhurst store themselves I am guessing. However, they said my truck was in transit and they estimate early April for delivery.

My wife likes the stainless steel look as well, but my biggest concerns are the staining from bugs and bird droppings. Also, I am worried about the salt given our winters. Where are you getting the tinting done?
barkeeper's friend *should* remove the stains, but that's why I'm gonna do the protectaclear. So I don't have to BKF with every wash.

The place is called "factory auto tint" in mentor. Everything I've found says that Autobahn makes heat rejecting tint with the best clarity (only drawback is price), and there were only 2 places in 50 miles offering it. I was quoted 2800 for the most expensive tint that Autobahn makes, for everything but the rear window.

Sorry for the million questions, but why are you interested in the tinting. Is it to reduce heat therefore increase distance and protect the inside or is it also for the look? It looks like the protectaclear is a home kit, that seems reasonably easy and beneficial. I even saw a post that you could apply Vinyl on top and it adheres prefectly without removing it. I really appreciate learning about these products!

No need to apologize.

I already sweat a bit while I'm driving my model Y on the highway in summer. Part of it is my fault, I always wear black shirts. But it just doesn't matter what I set the climate to, I end up with a sweaty back by the time I get where I'm going (if it's an hour drive or more). Part of this would be solved by the ventilated seats, but with the windshield being as enormous as it is, I figured it would be best to just get heat rejecting tint. I would have done it on the model Y as well, but that was always a placeholder vehicle for the truck. So it would have just been money in the shredder when it came time to trade in.

I don't care about the look that much. Full windshield is illegal here, so I'm not gonna push it trying to match the front windows to the rear. I want to skate under the radar. The guy recommended going with Autobahn ceramic i3 at 70% for the windshield, and I figure I may as well just use the same stuff all around since I don't want to go darker than 35% on the front windows. I just know if I go 20% on the front windows (to match the rears), I'll get pulled over, and if they find the windshield tint that's a bigger ticket.

Tesla Cybertruck Tesla Powershare Home Backup Installation For $9,082.00 In FV SoCal For My AWD: Too Much? IMG_2986


How much to install the Wall Connector? Who cares, shut up and take my money :ROFLMAO:

I got a quote for about $8k including the 200A panel upgrade. The problem now is waiting for the utility to disconnect the power, which is scheduled for June. sigh

The pricing for the wiring seems a little much. I looked on the website of the installers for Ohio and they are saying $5k - $15k for running a couple of big wires between short locations. It is a 4 hour job max, so $1k an hour is ridiculous. I hope I can figure out how I can get the equipment myself. I understand when there is large runs of large wire where there is a lot of cost in wire. For my location, it is likely less than 20 ft of wire for all of my runs. I know it requires programming, but how hard can that be.

Unfortunately it's impossible to get the "included" equipment without paying their chosen installer.

Super annoyed about that myself

Yep, Lyndurst pickup.

I guess I won't be able to run two AC units - my upstairs and downstairs air conditioners at the same time if there is an outage :(

BTW, do you have your VIN or truck yet? I have a VIN and waiting on delivery dates.
you can run both air conditioners .. you just need to install a soft start kit. like this one https://www.amazon.com/EasyStart-Co...pcontext&ref_=fplfs&psc=1&smid=A2VHGGOHXF24LJ

one per Outside Condensor unit. makes your AC use less then half the inrush current it normally would.

Maybe the answer is “no one knows.”

You could refuse the installation and answer your own question though?
I know. Already sent a few questions in an email to Trout but no reply yet probably because of the weekend. Looks like everyone here accepted the installation.
