First we've seen the tonneau cover being wrapped! This looks awesome 🤩



They added a close up video

I'm ignorant on the Tonneau cover access when it is in the "open" position to be clear.

My first concern here is less about the look but more about the moving parts starting to "peel" the vinyl and it binds in its storage compartment when the Tonneau cover is in its open position and how accessible it is to resolve the bind.

Maybe, but fact that the tonneau cover can be wrapped is great. Opens up even more custom and unique looks possible. 👍
Possible, true, but it looks like a guaranteed mess to me. This thing articulates into the bed over and over. How long will the wrap really last with the kind of abuse the tonneau is going to see?

Seems like a recipe for disaster imagine a wrap peeling back and doing who knows what to the mechanisms below requiring a battery drop and canister disassembly or replacement on your dime all for the sake of mindless vanity

Ironically tesla seems to be trying hard to appeal to the blue collar buyers of $100k trucks (lol) but these gangsta wrappers are working overtime to undermine that notion

Step 1: Give the creative department a week to come up with a pattern and put it on vinyl.

Step 2: Creative department doesn't have the time to do something from scratch. So they grab hexagon pattern Adobe stock art. . . And sprinkle some Photoshop on it.

Step 3: Profit.


Sorry, gotta be a critic.
That's some weak $2 design work.

I love those "storage unit" wrap shops that can't even take a side shot picture because their unit is so small 🤣
