Our door control wraps allow you to cover the piano black factory finish on the door/window controls with vinyl; this enhances the look, protects the plastic, and dramatically reduces fingerprints. Match this with wraps for your Model 3 center console, steering wheel and dash! You'll also see our door release buttons in the video; you don't need them, as this kit covers all the buttons, but they're a great upgrade!
Note: Model Y's since August 2020 have been shipping with a new door-open button that features an overhead view of the car, which will presumable start appearing on Model 3 as well. The door release buttons are not compatible with the newer design from Tesla, nor are the vinyl decals included in this pack, as the shape would be too difficult to line up. The rest of the kit is fine, but if you want to cover every square inch of the piano black, the buttons will still be exposed.
As with all our vinyl decals, we use 3M 2080 vinyl; this is the best on the market, and conforms well to complex shapes. As some of the pieces are quite fiddly to install, we provide two full sets. One set is fully weeded, so it's ready to install. The backup set is not weeded, meaning that you simply peel off the piece(s) you need.
Aside from the vinyl, you'll also get some wipes and and a soft squeegee in the kit.
We've taken a lot of time designing this kit, and all the button decals are over-sized, which allows them to fully wrap the buttons; this prevents the vinyl coming up at the edges on frequently-used switches (this is why we prototype for months!).

This kit is fairly easy to install, but we really (really!) recommend you watch the video.
Aside from that, usual rules apply for applying our vinyl products:

Q. What does LHD or RHD mean?
A. LHD=Left Hand Drive (North America, most of Europe), RHD=Right Hand Drive (the UK, Australia, Hong Kong etc). The difference being, of course, that the front door designs are mirrored, as the driver's controls are on the opposite side for RHD vehicles.
Q. The installation didn't go well, I'd like to return it
A. All our vinyl products are 'single use' products, meaning they cannot be resold once used, so we're not able to provide refunds. However, we'll always work with you, but if you're really not sure you can do it, please request the return prior to installation, or consider getting someone else to help you.
Q. What's your favorite?
A. Color selection is a very personal choice. We always recommend Matrix, as it's easier to apply, and we feel it goes with the general aesthetic of the car without being too bold. Any of the darker options are easier to fit, since they tend to blend with the piano black, so any minor misalignment tends to be less obvious. The lighter colors, such as titanium, carbon fiber white and satin white do require a good amount of precision (and patience!) for a good outcome.
Q. What happens if I mess something up?
A. You have an entire spare set included with your purchase :-)
