In this episode we see whether or not the cleaning of the boards made a difference and removed headlights. I also got a strange phone call...

    Don’t you think it would be a good idea to wash down cars you get before you start? Decontaminate them as much as you can? At least the outside? How much more damage could you do? Not washing things out... is like a pig rolling around in its own crap for the length of the rebuild. Except you’re the pig and the crap isn’t just 💩 it’s probably a mix of toxic chemicals now dried and getting into the air. Which then gets into your home and into your family’s lungs. Little water mixed with a tiny amount of bleach. Cah cah cah cah come on.

    I'm glad you are doing good for yourself rich. I myself really dream of having a Tesla. I own a '13 Scion FRS that was salvaged and I rebuilt it. I'm too broke for a tesla right now, but maybe in 3-5 years is what i'm shooting for, I'm hoping by then maybe the used market will be a bit better, prices will drop, and we'll know more about how these vehicles age, or who knows maybe I'll change my mind and my dream for owning one. (But probably not.) Prices for even used teslas (Model S) are like 35,000$ That's INSANE! At least in my opinion, for any car, even a tesla.

    I'm not sure I approve of the giant computer monitor tacked onto the middle of the dash. It looks like they made a dash with nothing, then stuck a big as tablet computer to the front of it. I'd really prefer a lot more style, more class if you will. Where perhaps smaller screens were integrated into the actual dash itself, rather than looking like they're just stuck on top of it. You know. something that looks like it was integrated, and not some kind of afterthought. Its really a poor aesthetic. They didn't build every car since the originals a certain way, for no reason. Not sure I can get over the whole giant computer monitor thing. And this is coming from a computer guy. It just looks lousy.

    Don't really like these new apprentices because it seems to me like they care less about the process than about how fast it can be done, unlike Rich. See how they are being all clumsy and trying to finish the process quick? Don't know if it's a good thing to be honest. Maybe they will learn to be more careful in what they do and how they do it, change the approach to things.

  • N


    Vit më parë

    To me it looks like they have this kind of approach because they never bought the car, never went through the trouble of getting money for it, maybe never actually cared that much. Hope everything works out well for you, Rich!

    I listen to rogan talking about him meeting Elon and he promised him he would buy a tesla not sure what model joe got but he got his in literally a few weeks guess that's what happens when you smoke blunts with the MANNN . I'm guessing joe got one top of the line and said its faster then anything I ever drove . He has a Sharkwork Porsche GT3 and has a older 650hp corvette . He said in Ludacris mode it feels like it's punching through a wormhole and is scary fast .

    Hi Rich! Im looking for a bit of an advice! I would very much appreciate if you can help me out! Long story short, i bought a used Model S 85 RWD (2015) and it has break down after a week of owning it. Second hand, no warranty, you name it. Calling Tesla, they looked into the car over the air and identified (or suggested) that the steering column assembly needs replacing. They quoted me 2200£ (1700£ for part 101303300A 340£ labour etc...) which is around 3000$ i belive. Funny enough, i can find the exact same part on ebay for 180£, and i can get it fitted for 100 or so. which would be a huge saving!! Altought when i was on the phone, the Service Center guy said that it might not be possible to reprogram the part if its from another donor car,(they say that parts will only work with the car they came with) unlike the new one which they would charge 1700£... (Sounds absolute bullshit to me) Did you ever face any issues like this, can i just get the steering column replaced by an EV specialist, then bring it to Tesla to reprogram it, and job done? Or will they refuse to do it? Did they refuse to help you with anything like this? And if yes, is there any way of going around and getting it done without them? I follow you for a a fair bit of time, and ive seen you building your car from 2 donors, which makes me think Tesla is just bullshitting me, trying to make me pay 1700£ for a new part. Thank you for your time if you reply! Best Regards, Dan.
