Fixing Tesla Model X license plate issue

If you are from Norway you might have this issue.

20170323_175510

It’s because Tesla messed up and use a too large screw. However it is easy to fix yourself if you already picked up your car and signed off. If you are picking up your car, make them switch screws.

Here is the simple and effective trick that will remove prevent a costly paint job if people or cars bump your license plate slightly.

Just remove the license plate and unscrew the two top screws. Replace them with a smaller screw and there you are:

 

 

Thinking about Rubber Spray – Liquid Gum?

Some of you have probably seen cans with rubber spray or heard about a spray that you can spray on and peel off. Guess what, it is all true and it works great!

I bought a can of it at Jula http://www.jula.no/catalog/bygg-og-maling/maling-og-fugemasse/spraymaling/spraylakk/gummispray-623115/

Remember this before you start:

  1. Try first, try in on a similar material
  2. YOU MUST PUT ATLEAST 3 COATINGS
  3. Buy enough cans, you have limited time to apply after each coating

The spray does not work if you do not put enough coatings, you will not be able to remove it properly. If you are coating a rim, buy some extra cans. You don’t have time to go back to the shop if you run out and it could be very hard to remove the coating

Pictures below from a showel I tried it on. Videos below pictures show both a coarse surface and a smooth surface

Tesla Model X 6 seat configuration – skis

If you are thinking about which seat configuration to get with your Tesla Model X, here is a picture of the 6-seat version which allows for skis to be positioned in the middle while keeping the second row seats.

You might ask yourself, why not a ski hitch? For me, two simple reasons

  1. I had to buy it extra
  2. My skis will get incredible dirty from the drive

In the bag there are 2 pair of Telemark skis which are about 170cm long. There is plenty of more space for even longer Cross Country skis or Snowboards. You could even keep one third row seat up and allow for 5 passengers.

Use the security mesh to hold down and stow away the skiboots in the deep part of the trunk.

Towing with Tesla Model X – 7 pin adapter

The Tesla Model X comes with a new 13-pin female connector and most older trailers have a old 7 pin male connector.

wp_20170114_12_12_11_rich_li

You need to buy an adapter at Biltema or Jula.  Here is the adapter you need

http://www.biltema.no/no/Fritid/Campingvogn-og-bobil/Elektrisk-12V/Adapter-2000016506/

When you insert the adapter try to push the original lid behind the plastic bottom case as in the picture. This is the only way to get the adapter to fit the plug without the original lid getting in the way.

Once you have connected your trailer and hooked it up, go into the Tesla and make sure that Towing mode is on

Once you connect a cable the car automatically enters into “Towing mode” if it does not do this, go to:  Controls->Driving->Towing Modetowing-mode

Once you have on towing mode, go drive. You can use your rear view camera to keep an eye on your trailer

Opel Ampera-E launch in Norway

Opel Amper-E visited Norway this week and here are some pictures, thoughts and reflection on the upcoming car.

Finish and Build Quality. Plastic fantastic. It’s easy to see that money went into developing the battery and technical equipment. You have leather seats with generic gray and some colored/textured plastic. It’s not anywhere close to a BMW.

 

The touchscreen and infotainment system comes in Norwegian local language. yay! The design is so-so. buttons are big and easy to hit while the car is stationary.

Headroom is good in the front and acceptable in the rear. I am 186cm.

Legroom is very good actually. There is plenty of space for 4 passengers. It will be cramped for 5, but it is possible.

Finally, it will be possible for roof mounted boxes or other roof equipment.

Gult er kult til brunt

På det nye huset så hadde vi sånne grå plater ved vinduene. Det var kjedelig.

WP_20160509_21_23_33_Pro

Derfor bestemte vi oss for å gjøre noe med det.

Dro til Maxbo Stormarked på Skjetten og kom hjem med Grendegult og Gul ublandet base.

Vi grunnet og så testet vi med fargene. Likte den mørke best.WP_20160623_21_59_57_Pro_LI

Ble ganske fint. Her er første strøket tatt

Tok ut alle skruene før jeg malte. Malte med rulle to strøk.

Slik ble det ferdig resultatet

Venter spent på hva naboen bestemmer seg for

 

 

Prosjekt Parkeringsplass – Resultatet

Resultatet er storartet om jeg måtte si det selv. Jeg må si det selv, storartet.

Prosjekt Parkeringsplass – Arbeidet med beleggningstein

Det er mye som skal på plass nå. Alt ble lagt klart og så kommer tre steinleggerne fra SPS Bygg AS ledet av Timoleon timo@spsbygg.no

De brukte totalt 3 dager

Bestilte alt fra Steinhandel.no og fikk det levert rett på “døren”.

Prisen på stein og materiale var best i klassen, men pukk og grus var ekstremt dyrt.
jeg betalte 840 kr for tonnet i en sekk, mens prisen per tonn hos Feiring Bruk er på 250kr. Vurder å hente dette selv om du skal gjøre det samme.

Det er fult mulig å spa grus selv på Feiring Bruk, her har jeg dratt for å gjøre dette. Husk at bilen ikke kan overfylles! Dro tre turer for å hente ekstra grus. Totalt 2,6 tonn hentet jeg.

Vi satt opp en støttemur for å holde på massene fra naboen og fra gressplenen vår. Her brukte vi granittblokker som var 50cm lange og veide cirka 65 kilo. De kunne fint løftes uten kran.

Vi la en dreneringslist i front for å ta vekk vannet som kommer fra asfalten. Dette er også for å hindre at vannet renner utover plassen og lager dammer. Dreneringen ble koblet på en ny kum som ble lagt ned under grunnarbeidet.

Vi la granitt kantstein mot jorden for å holde på den. Denne kantsteinen ble støpt med sement. Vi la også kantstein i granitt mot terrassen og mot asfalten

 

 

Steinen vi valgte heter Asak Relieff XXL og er en av de dyrere steinene, men har en utrolig kul og trendy struktur når lyset treffer de.

For å ha en kul effekt på parkeringsplassen så la vi 6 in-lite fusion 1W lys fra Steinhandel.no husk å bestill hullborring på riktig antall steiner.

Her er noen diverse bilde fra grunnarbeidet.
