Body Armor line of dread.......

Body Armor line of dread.......

I took delivery of my Red S+ yesterday and of course looked for and found the line of demarcation between the protected and non-protected area of the hood.

I am looking for an innovative fix and does not involved taking off the existing armor. Anyone find a solution to this silly glitch? How about protecting the whole hood?

Yup, you can protect the whole hood (that's what I did) but your installer will remove the existing film on the hood first. No big issue.

Except for the fact that you paid $1000 to have it there in the first place!

After market is way better and the xpel doesn't leave exacerbate orange peel look like tesla's does.

Just heard back from Tesla Service guy. They found an after market guy who will take off the old and put on total hood protection for an extra $450, which leave me with total hood protected for $1400 and no line.

I am inclined to accept that offer and go forward.

Got that fix yesterday and it looks great.

I think Tesla ought to offer the body armour in a full hood protection version either as a substitute for the current configuration or as a upgrade to the current one.

I wish I had gotten the protection... I have three small chips already. Hope your whole hood protection works out though.

Sounds like a decent deal. I opted for the after market front end Expel cover. Looks great. By that, I mean I can't see it.

Exactly what I mean too. How much did the Expel cover cost if you don't mind sharing that detail?
