    My Key Fob Mod

    I did this on mine in compass yellow (or at least the closest Rustoleum comes). I sprayed some spray paint into a dixie cup and slowly dripped the paint into the voids with a toothpick. Spray paint is pretty low viscosity, so it's easier to fill paint than other kinds.

    Tonneau cover repair scheduled–redesign ready?

    General consensus is that repairs to the tonneau aren't being scheduled until redesigned parts arrive in mid-August. I just got the call to schedule my appointment in 9/2 and indeed the work order specifies a remove and replace.

    A little fun with drift mode at the beach

    I was down in Long Beach, WA and chickened out of doing that! (Horrific visions of my Rivian stuck, then swallowed by the tide.) Next time, I'll try though–that looks like just too much fun!

    Washington Want to buy: Badges/Lettering

    Debadgers! I'm looking for a set of rear and side letters. One of my favorite design features is the yellow highlighting on the Rivian letters on the side, and I'd like to do the same on the back. Plan A is to paint the sides, but I have zero faith in my skills there. Plan B is to use the side...

    XPEL Rivian Factory PPF Q&A -- by XPEL

    @[email protected] I filled out the form for a front clip install when the program was announced, but haven't heard back yet from an installer. (Seattle area) Should I have been contacted since? Would it help to submit the form again?

    (Fraternal) Twins separated at birth (R1T + Delivery Van)

    I definitely won't admit to stalking my Amazon packages on the off chance that my particular delivery would be delivered by a Rivian Delivery Van–that would be the behavior of a crazy person, right?!? Anyway, after rushing out a couple times only to find a Ram ProMaster idling, I finally caught...

    Debadge Rivian R1T - for those curious to see what it looks like

    Teddyang’s truck looks good debadged, but carmelbythesea’s Limestone lends itself really well to the clean sheet look. For me, I think it’s the greater contrast between the paint and the plastic. I don’t think my FG would look good debadged.

    Tesla to open Supercharger network to non-Tesla vehicles

    I think a compelling product would be a Tesla-made charging adapter in the $299 to $499 range that contains all the wireless and authentication electronics that makes the Supercharger network seamless. Use an app on your phone once to configure the adapter your billing info/link your Tesla...

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    Yep, I agree! It’s just not as tight as the Model Y due to physics.

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    I think the networks are probably not getting a whole lot worse in absolute terms, but as more and more electric vehicles get out there, the increase demand without corresponding (and proactive) supply of chargers will make the experience worse in terms of an individual’s experience. Component...

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    Just a multipack of wet-sand paper in various grits. Worked through the grits from about 225 to 1000 (I think). I might have needed to start with a diamond file for the first one 18 months ago, but I can’t remember for sure. I used a black Sharpie paint pen, though you can probably get a lot...

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    A couple more things I thought of while driving last night: Noise comparison My vehicle was probably a worst-case scenario in terms of noise. It was a relatively early build using their brand new mega casting. I wouldn’t be surprised if German and Texas-built Model Ys have some changes that...

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    Bummer! The “just drive it in” method sure was convenient, but I hope you get max cash in the private market!

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    The BuiltRight system is super cool! I probably don’t need the Molle panel, but rails would be great–I’ll check it out! I’m slightly baffled that Rivian wouldn’t offer their own factory optioned accessory system. That seems like leaving money on the table to me!

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    I was planning to sell mine privately too, but the trade in offer was shockingly good. They’ll have you take pictures of all your car’s options, so I think they’ll take FSD into account. The American review: Model Y: Like a bald eagle piloting an F-22 Raptor while using the latest iPhone...

    R1T vs Model Y, a ridiculous comparison review

    This is an absurd comparison. The Tesla Model Y and Rivian R1T are such different vehicles on both price and type, you’d never put them head to head. What’s better, a Porsche Macan or Ford F-150 King Ranch? A Mazda CX-5 or Toyota Tacoma? And yet, due to the weird time in the electrification of...

    Hanging Mountain Bikes on Tailgate?

    I grabbed a Race Face T2 S/M based on the findings in that post since it has padding right on the creased area. So far so good!

    Dash cam options?

    I didn't have my truck yet at the time, but now I do! The camera's on its way, so I'll report back here once installed. :)

    Unbelievable trade-in offer for Model Y

    I didn’t want to post this until I actually did the deed in case somehow it was all some kind of big mistake. I’m not posting to brag, but rather to let folks know not to sleep on the trade in! Rivian offered $63,000 for my 2020 Tesla Model Y Long Range (only upgrade from the base model was 20”...
