Has any one undercoated their Model S to protect from corrosion?
Corrrosion? In a mostly aluminium vehicle?
You can forget the 1960ies in this car :)
Just drive and enjoy. Give 50% of what
you were willing to put to this effort
to a homeless guy or for some good cause..
I could be wrong but I think the aluminum "armor"box surrounding the batteries is used as a heat sink to dissipate excess heat, so a coating of rubber like insulating material wouldn't be a good idea.
While the car does contain some steel components, the vast majority are aluminum.
I would actually like to hear about how these aluminum components are protected. The parts I've seen that aren't painted don't appear to be anodized or otherwise protected against salt or other corrosive materials.
Additionally I'd appreciate an update from anyone in the know regarding galvanic corrosion between the dissimilar metals. I assume this has been considered, however.
Thanks for raising the issue though, thomassheehan. :-)
