  • If you are dreaming of getting the hottest new truck made in Texas, you might need to get your alcohol wipes and car wash soap handy.
  • Tesla is warning Cybertruck owners about getting their trucks dirty and letting them know how stainless steel works.
  • Stainless steel is difficult to tarnish, but only when you compare it to regular steel.

The juxtaposition of the Cybertruck is very polarizing. Some are just against electric vehicles, and that's the end of that.

Others are worried about charging times, towing range, and a limited infrastructure. The last thing you would think about a rough and ready stainless steel truck made in Texas by huge presses at the Giga factory is avoiding getting it dirty.

It seems that the Cybertruck, in its unwrapped raw stainless steel form, is like the Mogwai in the movie Gremlins. Everything is all good as long as you follow the instructions.

Don't Let Your Texas Tough Cybertruck Stay Dirty


According to Motorbiscuit if you get grease, oil, bird droppings, tree sap, bug guts, tar, or road salt on your truck, they are instructing owners to immediately use denatured alcohol to remove the contamination, then wash the area with mild, non-detergent soap to remove the alcohol.

Delorian Owners Already Knew About Stainless Steel Body Care

Cybertruck owners are finding out what owners of the only other stainless steel vehicle, the DMC-12 from Delorean, have known since the 80s. There are advantages and disadvantages to a stainless steel body.

If you bought a Founders Edition for over 130K, I'm sure you would like to keep it in pristine condition. My advice would be to get a clear wrap at the very least to protect your investment.

You could just treat it like a truck and let the stainless steel patina over time. Each stain and scratch is hard-earned and worn with pride.
