Hi, if there are questions you have that you want to run by me (not too technical), I can try to answer or assist while Trevor is off enjoying himself on a well-deserved holiday. Just ask away on this thread! - Kenneth

Hi Kenneth,

Any further thoughts on the rear glass. At the reveal it was fully transparent but later days we saw the top part tinted. I am hoping there will be a tint where rear passengers are seated because it would be too intrusive otherwise.

Thanks Ken for stepping in. I recal a Tweet by Elon where he was asked about tinting for the glass roof and said yes for UV and ultraviolet. I think he said he burns easily so he knows the need.

Tesla will be using the same UV / infrared coatings used on the Model X on the Model 3.

I can confirm after being in a Model X in the hot Florida sun that heat and sunburns are not a problem ;)
Any idea if Tesla's paint includes IR and UV protection or heat block technology?

Hi there, not sure if the paint includes that but I would guess UV protection at a minimum. There are mixed reactions to Tesla's paint in the owners forums, however I've read they've been working on improving the paint quality and finishes. You may want to check in with a store pjfw8 in your area and ask them more questions on the paint.

What company do you have doing the job @TrevP ?

I'd like the same but want to make sure I trust the company doing the work. You know what I mean.

I guess there is valet mode.

You will have to give more details on that. I was just planning on Opticoat for the whole car. I'm assuming "full frontal" refers to the car.

That's what clearcoats are for
I was researching sunny climate color choices. There was mention of darker colors, including red and blue that use so called "cool technology" to reflect infrared. The were, in effect, cool paint alternatives. I am less concerned with paint protection than having a cooler car during the summer. My wife does not like white or silver.

I have Opticoat Pro on my S and love it. Still beading up like a fresh wax at 75,000 miles and coming up on 3 years. I'm definitely doing it for my 3.

Putting film protection might decrease functions of varies sensors and cameras installed in the car. I don't think it would be good idea.
There is no worry about rust with aluminum panels
