I was able to order a table to replace my sub trunk lid. It will be made out of bamboo. I will then stain and Epoxy Coat it.
they charged me $194 in Bamboo. if it works out all right they will add it to their website where people can just order one for yours if anyone else is this insane. I don’t know if the model Y is the same size but if anyone knows please let me know. They can also make it in various plastic colors. I plan on mounting it magnetically to the Lagun Mount. I also plan on trying to mount the lagun mount at the top of the trunk For storage. I still have to figure that out.
They have my lid as a pattern so I can’t show actual size. I will add Umbrella also.

I got my lid back with a couple samples today. The samples are the same 3/4” bamboo that the table/lid will be made out of, I should have it by the end of this week. I plan on going in a metal plate on the bottom and using four or six of these magnets to hold it. I also plan on dying/staining it my plan is to use Cordova, which I stay in one of the samples in. I think it’ll match the black interior better. I also plan on epoxy coating it. Photos at its lowest in at its highest mount. I think I will need regular height chairs instead of festival height.

I decided to go with a umbrella receiver mount to mount my lagun table amount to. I’m also going to try a 6 1/2 foot umbrella.

Umbrella Hitch mount

Umbrella

I did get the finished table back today. It fits really nice after I stain it and install the metal plate on the bottom, I’m going to install the little strap in the picture.

so if you’ve always been wanting to clean fish in your Tesla but haven’t had a table to do it, the future is here.

I got the clearcoat epoxy on my subtrunk lid/picnic table and on the metal mounting plate, that will be glued to the bottom. Also added magnets to my Lagun mount

Tesla Tailgating Mode

Another in my many lists of desired tesla features.
  • Ability to control the stereo volume from the app, as well as music selection next and fast forward
  • this could be a version of camp mode. It will be interesting to see with the trunk open and my 8 inch rechargeable fan if it provides any cooling sitting out back.
  • AD396238-9865-42DE-896C-C6A0C2F70E86.jpeg
  • I don’t have boombox but it seems like a good application for it, although rear external speakers would be nice or interface to Bluetooth speakers. I will currently bring my Sonos Move controlled with Bluetooth by my phone. But it is kind of is a waste to have a $50,000 boom box right next to me I can’t really get the benefit.

I'm in the LowerMainland of BC and I'm not a big sports guy, so I have never experienced tailgating.

But i'm starting to get it. I didn't get it at first, but now I do. interesting idea. good luck with it.

Still need to work on the final finish. I didn’t weigh it but it probably adds 8 to 10 pounds. I should have the other components for the hitch mount today. Excited to see it with the umbrella

I talked with the cutting board company and for an addition $50 they can provide whatever engraving you might want. For $80 they can do complete trough cuts. I'm planning on having one made with a large Tesla "T" cut through. I will then do a resin pour to fill. It should look nice with sub trunk lighting. It could also be a good option for people with amps mounted in the sub-trunk. I think I might go with a red dye next time for the bamboo. Wood Dyes

A couple photos with the pull strap installed. My next version will have a large T logo cut through the center. I am planning on dying it red With a silver translucent T. I am planning on at least doing a resin pour on half of it, if I can get my technique figured out. I have also grabbed a wood dashboard cheap off eBay, and my plan is to dye it matching with a resin pour also. I will play with pouring over some of the ABS conosole covers and seeing how it looks.

I am certainly not trying to get into the table business. If anyone is interested in getting one of these you could contact the cutting board company direct. I’ve been dealing with Grant. I was charged Under $200 for each board including the cut out. They can do whatever engraving you might like on it and of course it’s available in plastic as shown above. I do not know what type of engraving capabilities they have on plastic but I would imagine they could do whatever.
