    Nice work! I would suggest wearing a face mask additionally, every time you feel necessary to wear gloves. It’s much more safe to touch water residue like that than it is to breath it in/breath in all the spores created In cahoots with the water residue

    I think this is the 30th or so "Rich Rebuilds" video I've watched, and among the hilarity of all of them, the first 2 minutes of this one had me crying tears from cracking up. So much so that I had to pause the video to compose myself. Never change, Rich. Never change.

    These cars are kinda ugly on the outside, but nice on the inside. What would be cool is to cut that body off and pop on something more fitting like an Audi A7 (not sure of differences in wheelbase, but you get the idea). Also it would piss off Telsa purists *** Extra Points!

    No matter what AvE says in a BOLTR about Milwaukee products (no test on the cordless ratchet) this 0:48 is my go to tool for removing bolts in hard to reach areas and when lots of fasteners are coming out and going in. Mine is 1/4 instead of 3/8s, but they are the same tool. The drives are interchangeable.

    I am not surprised the charger was sealed. It is almost like any controller on the market for Ebike and planes with an ip68. You have to rewire all the car. Water is everywhere in the harness and silicone/mesh cable cover. If you don't , even the car run again. You might get troubles 18 months later with faulty signal and electricity. Good luck to rebuild. It is a massive job.

    Tesla is doing their best to prevent ANYONE other than them repairing their cars.. That makes everything a LOT more expensive. (Think of a dent in a quarter panel resulting in a car that is totalled. In any other vehicle it is off to the body shop to straighten or swap panels and then paint.. but not with the Tesla.. looking through "totaled" cars on the web shows the reason they get totalled.. $40,000 for a simple repair??? Err.. no thanks. The right to repair needs to get through nation wide. Force them to sell parts to anyone that wants to do their own work. Or so that your favorite repair shop can do the work on it... Open up the magic software that allows resets.. and so on.. Don't turn off the charger network for someone that makes one of the managers angry by asking not so silly questions.....
