    @ 10:12 "you'd think that little saw wouldn't have cut through it but it cut through it like butter" no, I wouldn't think that little saw wouldn't have cut through it. It's 16-20gauge sheet metal, you could cut through it with a pair of sufficiently beefy scissors...

    Sir, your videos are always entertaining and informative. Nice work on the cars -- and double-nice work on the videos! I know they take hours and hours to write, edit and narrate, and how you find the time to do the 'regular' work you do *and* make these videos makes me feel very, very much an underachiever. Fortunately, I'm pretty used to that. :-)

    I remember driving in a few prototype engineering Model S like this one, it was awesome because wires would come out of seams in the dash to plug things in to during developing. All kinds of hacks on the engineering cars for development in the early days.

    So, who is filing suit against Tesla for disabling cars that do not belong to Tesla? Or, is it that you just cannot use Tesla's charging stations with a car outside of Tesla controls? What am I missing here? Why should anyone even want to buy a car made by such an arrogant, controlling company? Are Tesla's lawyers just your classic and criminally motivated corporate lawyers -- crime cloaked as legal contract? Is it that Tesla is afraid that a class of thieves would have the gall to repair cars endlessly and never have to pay for the electricity Tesla foolishly has chosen to give away to Tesla buyers? I don't understand the motives here and what is really going on.

    Based upon how super rare it is and the fact that he autopilot harness is a separate engineering retrofit (and may or may not be fully modified to finished spec) you got the deal you thought you were getting, even if the battery was not present.

    The feds need to step in and sop this shit from happening. Can you imagine if safe Ford decided to disable your car if you put the wrong grade of fuel in it. I get the Tesla owns the fuel stations, but stacking Enterprises in such a way is typically allowed or disallowed at the whim of Congress. Its time for them to do something before we end up in a situation we're Tesla owns both the transportation and the fuel for transportation.
