    Tesla DIY Wrap & PPF Installation Instructions and Support

    Click HERE to order DIY Wrap / PPF Kits

    Congratulations! You are about to transform and personalize the look of your Tesla Cybertruck.  By carefully watching our step-by-step videos and following our detailed instructions, we are confident you will be able to complete the DIY Wrap or PPF installation successfully.  The installation is not particularly difficult, but does require:

    1. Taking your time (no rushing – plan for a several days to complete the job)
    2. Watching all our videos and carefully following all directions (watch videos a few times!)
    3. Work in a clean and well-lit garage or shop with plenty of space to move around
    4. Contact our support team with any questions or to help with problems

     

    First, select the type of kit that you purchased (Videos are unique):

     

    DIY Vinyl Wrapping Cybertruck

    Welcome! It’s time to take T Sportline’s masterclass in DIY wrapping your Cybertruck.  No prior film installation knowledge or experience is necessary, only willingness and patience to learn a new skillset. You will find that if you carefully follow the instructions in our videos and take your time mastering these new skills, the process will be straightforward, reasonably doable and fun.  In our video series we will start with the basics. We will walk through the components you received in your kit and how to use them, how to prepare your vehicle and workspace, the basics of vinyl application, tips and tricks for how to avoid or deal with common issues, and then a detailed panel-by-panel installation guide for how to approach each specific Cybertruck body panel.

     

    First we will start with removing some trim and mirrors, so we can properly install film up under these edges for proper coverage.  Next, the Cybertruck must be very thoroughly washed and all wrap surfaces carefully prepped & inspected.  We recommend completing these trim removal, wash, and prep steps a day prior to starting on the film, so the entire Cybertruck has time to thoroughly air dry.

     

    Once the truck is fully prepped, it will need to stay inside a clean and closed garage during the rest of the process, which will take another few of days.  There can be no driving the Cybertruck during the wrap process, or the entire wash and prep will need repeated.  Cleanliness is of paramount importance!

    Let’s walk through how the vinyl application process works and discuss some of the common issues that you may run into.  We will also build some comfort and confidence with the vinyl application process by applying a few practice panels to the truck. Get ready, it’s almost time for the fun part!

    Panel Specific DIY Wrap Installation Videos

    It’s wrap time! Watch each of the videos as we take you through our recommended application method for each Cybertruck panel.  We recommend you work through the panels in the sequence of videos (start with PART 1, then PART 2, etc).  As you complete installation of each panel, your DIY skills will grow and serve to help on the subsequent panel.  Since each Cybertruck side panel is just mirrored from the Driver’s to the Passenger’s side, we will only show wrapping the passenger’s side in these videos.  Once you complete the passenger side wrap, simply repeat the same process on the same panel of the driver’s side next.

    The first two videos are both great introductions to the vinyl application process - from two different perspectives.  We recommend that you watch all the installation videos before getting started on your first panel.  If you encounter issues at any point in this process, refer back to the Tips & Tricks video for solutions. Still not sure how to work through a problem? Reach out to our customer support team who will be happy to advise (#insert phone number and email#), or seek answers from our Facebook community.

     

    Now you’re just one panel away from complete!  Go ahead and complete the tailgate using the same method and steps outlined for the front panel of the hood, rewatch that video for a refresher.  Congratulations! You have DIY wrapped your Cybertruck. It’s time to take a step back and admire your work.

     

    There are just a few last things that you should keep in mind about your newly wrapped Cybertruck:

    1. Just like paint, vinyl wrap can be scratched if washed with dirty wash mitts. Always use clean and dirt-free washing supplies.  Some customers choose not to use commercial car washes to avoid these risks. 
    2. Over the course of the first week or so, you may see a few bubbles raise in the film.  This is normal, as sunlight and changing temperature can cause this the beginning.  You can carefully press those bubbles down as needed.  
    3. Accidents happen!  If you have a panel get scratched or damaged, please reach out our support team to order replacement panels whenever needed.

    Finally, be sure you share pictures of your DIY wrapped Cybertruck in our Facebook Group for everyone to enjoy.  When you share photos anywhere on social, please tag @TSportline!

    DIY PPF for Cybertruck

    Welcome! It’s time to take T Sportline’s masterclass in DIY installing PPF on your Cybertruck. No prior PPF installation knowledge or experience is necessary, only willingness and patience to learn a new skillset. You will find that if you carefully follow the instructions in our videos and take your time mastering these new skills, the process will be straightforward, reasonably doable and fun. In our video series we will start with the basics. We will walk through the components you received in your kit and how to use them, how to prepare your vehicle and workspace, the basics of PPF wet application, tips and tricks for how to avoid or deal with common issues, and then a detailed panel-by-panel installation guide for how to approach each specific Cybertruck body panel.

    First we will start with removing some trim and mirrors, so we can properly install PPF film up under these edges for proper coverage. Next, the Cybertruck must be very thoroughly washed and all stainless surfaces carefully prepped & inspected. We recommend completing these trim removal, wash, and prep steps carefully before starting the installation. Since PPF is installed wet, there is no concern waiting for the truck to dry before starting the PPF installation.

    Once the truck is fully prepped, it will need to stay inside a clean and closed garage during the rest of the process, which will take another few of days. There can be no driving the Cybertruck during the PPF installation process, or the entire wash and prep will need repeated. Cleanliness is of paramount importance!

    Panel Specific DIY PPF Installation Videos

    It’s PPF install time! Watch each of the videos as we take you through our recommended application method for each Cybertruck panel. We recommend you work through the panels in the sequence of videos (start with PART 1, then PART 2, etc). As you complete installation of each panel, your DIY skills will grow and serve to help on the subsequent panel. Since each Cybertruck side panel is just mirrored from the Driver’s to the Passenger’s side, we will only show installing PPF on one side in these videos. Once you complete the one side PPF installation, simply repeat the same process on the same panel of the other side next.

    We recommend that you watch all the installation videos before getting started on your first panel. If you encounter issues at any point in this process, refer to the Tips & Tricks video for solutions. Still not sure how to work through a problem? Reach out to our customer support team who will be happy to advise (DIYFILM@tsportline.com), or seek answers from our Facebook community.
