Listen: Tesla, Diy Tesla Factory, Alexis discussed on Household Name
"Hey, guys, it's rich from rich rebuilds, aka the artist, formerly known as cargo, ru, aka uncle, rich. Okay, so this is Wendy's favourite youtuber. His name is rich, Ben wa and by day rich works in IT by nights and weekends, he's rich rebuilds or sometimes just your uncle rich. So as long as we've had cars, we've had people tinkering in their backyards, fixing them collecting them, modifying them, talk about them, but rich is in his own league. This guy buys salvage cars and turns them into like new gleaming Tesla's their model s.'s and Alexis. Some of it flooded or some have been damaged even worse. This is him from one of his videos. So I went online one day and I found this gem that was absolutely beat to death. The car looks like it rollover fifty, five times it wasn't yet avail rich scours auctions to find total Tesla's like these ones. He bought this crumpled. Red model s. for its parts and he calls it a donor car. He needs donors because tesla won't sell him their parts, and he paid too much more than eighteen grand for this dead car. He picks it up Jesus Christ. This is what eighteen thousand plus shipping. Looks like the car was shaped like a Rombas. The seats would destroyed. I can't even use the interior that this is rich. We're talking about he's fearless in a kind of blase way. So when he gets the wreck home, he nonchalantly connect some jumper cables to it. And the thing actually starts to come to life. No, frigging way, no freaking way. This was pretty damn incredible. So I kept working on the car using kitchen knives to cut the windshield glass and rich is a high stakes Mr. Fixit. So he's basically a DIY tesla factory. Exactly. That's exactly it. And I saw that when I visited him recently at his home and you showed me his garage and storage area where he keeps a huge inventory of Tusla parts. These all the parts you need to put one back together. Literally everything you need is here everything. There's some odd shock. So suspension components, all the interior trim panels, put the car back together, which is factory is a two car garage attached to his suburban home. The kind of home with kids toys all over the living room floor in his storage room off to the side of the garage. There are parts thrown all over the floor and a half eaten bag of potato chips sits on a folding chair, look to your left, and there's a bumper hanging over their spare tesla seat. Next to it piles of tesla, batteries on concrete floors, stacked like bricks. There's everything here. All of the. Tire, braking systems on the ground.."
