Tesla is known for its innovation and commitment to sustainability, and its paint repair options are no exception. Whether you have a small scratch or a larger area of damage, Tesla offers a range of paint repair options to help keep your vehicle looking its best.
Tesla paint repair kit options are designed to make it easy for owners to touch up minor scrapes or scuffs on their cars. But if you’re looking for something more intensive, Tesla now offers a color-matching service that ensures your vehicle looks as good as new.
Tesla Offers a Color-Matching Service
Tesla paint repair kit options are designed to make it easy for owners to touch up minor scrapes or scuffs on their cars. The company offers a color-matching service that allows you to get the exact paint color of your Tesla from the factory, ensuring that the new coat will match perfectly with the rest of your car’s body.
If your Model 3 has been in an accident, Tesla can arrange for a body shop to come directly to your home or workplace and fix any dents or scratches as quickly as possible.
Touch-up Paint Comes with a Brush Applicator
The bottles are small enough to fit in your glove box or center console. There are three components:
- Base coat
- Clear coat
To mix the paint, you’ll need two or three coats of each. It would be best if you waited about a minute between each stage to allow the previous layer of paint to dry before applying the next one.
The Components of a Touch-Up Paint
Primer is the first layer of paint you apply to your car. It’s designed to bond to the existing paint on your vehicle and help ensure that other layers of paint will stick properly.
The base coat is made of multiple shades and tones to give your vehicle a smooth, professional look. The clear coat is the final layer of paint you apply over your base coat; it helps protect the other layers and give your car that glossy sheen.
The Paint Does Not Come Pre-mixed
You must shake your primer bottle for two minutes before using it on your car’s surface. After shaking the bottle thoroughly, you can add some of these components onto a clean rag or piece of cloth so they will be ready later in the application process.
Repairs Made with Tesla Paint Are Covered Under the Vehicle’s Warranty
If you’re a Tesla owner, you’ve likely heard that the company offers free repairs. But what if you need to repair and don’t want to wait for Tesla to send over its technicians?
Knowing what options are available and which won’t cover your vehicle under warranty is helpful. Here’s what you need to know about using Tesla paint on repairs in non-Tesla shops (like EZ Auto Spa).
Repairs with Tesla Paint Under the Vehicle’s Warranty
Tesla paint repair kit options are not available to everyone. The company does not sell its paints or have a network of authorized dealers, so if you want to use Tesla’s proprietary materials on your car and ensure their warranty covers it, you’ll need to find someone to provide them for you.
Tesla Parts Can Be Covered Under the Vehicle’s Original Warranty
Tesla paint is the same as the paint used on the rest of the vehicle. If you choose to use Tesla parts, your repairs will be covered under your vehicle’s original warranty.
Non-Tesla Parts Are Not Covered Under Warranty
Tesla vehicles are designed with proprietary technology and parts tested extensively to ensure they work seamlessly together as an integrated system. Using third-party components, aftermarket parts, and second-hand or refurbished items can result in unintended consequences that could put yourself or others at risk.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some common questions about Tesla Paint Repair Kit Options.
How do you fix scratched Tesla paint?
Tesla paint is made of a metal alloy designed to be scratch-resistant. Unfortunately, the same qualities that make it resistant to scratches make it difficult to fix those scratches when they do happen.
It’s important to know that Tesla doesn’t recommend using products other than its own to fix your car’s paint.
Do Tesla stores sell touch-up paint?
Tesla stores sell touch-up paint in different colors, including the standard black and white, as well as other colors. Tesla stores also sell a variety of interior car upholstery.
Does Tesla paint chip easily?
Tesla paint is one of the hardest paints out there. While it does chip and scratch, it does so at a much slower rate than other cars.
The idea behind Tesla paint is that it will not chip or scratch easily as compared to other cars, so you don’t have to worry about getting your car repainted every year or two.
Can a Tesla be repainted?
A Tesla can be repainted. The car is made to last, and the paint does not fade or chip easily. However, the color may chip or crack if you have an older Tesla model. You can take your car to a professional and have it repainted.
