A couple years ago, we were a word of mouth business servicing Teslas out of our 112th Street shop. Customers included Roadster owners we’d worked with during our time with Tesla and maintained relationships with. We spent nothing on advertising and let people find us. Since then, we’ve been seen on CNBC and featured on a prominent YouTube channel. Cars have come to us from all over the country. As of early 2021, we are in a new shop with more space and additional hands. We spent many late evenings and weekends last year building it out, knowing that our original location would soon be unable to accommodate our growing customer base. At this moment, we have over 20 Roadsters on the floor needing anything from battery pack recovery to collision repair. We will do as we’ve always done and make them better than new for their owners to continue enjoying.
We go way back with Tesla Roadsters and clear carbon fiber parts. While working for Tesla during the Roadster era, we commissioned these premium parts and made them available to customers seeking the best for their vehicles. Shortly after we left, Tesla discontinued production and quickly sold out of its inventory. Over the years, we’ve made one off parts on demand as an independent shop. Now in 2020, we’re proud to offer these parts for sale here on our website. Our parts are produced with the finest carbon fiber fabrics and epoxy resins. For durability and added aesthetic appeal, they’re finished with 2K automotive clear coat. We’re just getting started and plan to make more parts available over time. You will soon see every original exterior and interior carbon fiber part offered, and more. Order yours today and check back as we add more.
Yellow Roadsters are rarest of all the standard production colors. This one was hit from the front and rear, destroying some parts that were difficult, if not impossible to come by. Most notably the armature at the front of the car, to which the hood and headlights are mounted. We created a new armature from scratch out of 12K structural carbon fiber. Other parts were replaced with stock from our own inventory. Clear carbon fiber parts that we produce also found their way onto this car. We’ve built our reputation on fixing them right and delivering them better than new. This car was no exception.
We routinely collect salvage Roadsters for parts to add to our inventory. According to the last measured reading on its Vehicle Display System (VDS), this car hit a telephone pole at 75mph. Both occupants survived. One refused medical treatment. We’re continually amazed by the engineering that went into these cars, providing safety in such a small package. This one came with many good parts, including a rare 3.0 battery pack. They will go on to help us keep other cars on the road.
With their low center of gravity, you don’t typically hear of Tesla Roadsters in rollover accidents. Roadster #912 was sent to us from North Carolina after a car transporter it was in suffered a rollover. The vehicle’s composite body sustained some damage, in addition to deep scuffs in its paint. We repaired the affected panels, gave it a fresh paint job, and sent it home like new.
