I'm thinking about putting a Tesla sticker (name or badge) somewhere on my Rav...

Too Cheesy? Or Cool?

I like it, but maybe "Electric Power by Tesla".

I know of a wrist watch that has done that already. In fact, I have one . . . found and bought on Ebay.

Thanks for posting the link, Tony. I knew someone here would know where to find something! :)

What do you guys think about just putting a smallish TESLA in the corner or top of the rear window?

Have you seen the nice chrome Tesla license plate frames? They are sold at Tesla stores.

Good call. I haven't seen them, but that could work. Thanks.

I think what is needed is a "Tesla Inside" sticker.
I found vinyl appliques that I think are the same stuff as "paint armor".
I also found where they make an "electric blue" paint that is actually clear but is luminescent. I am thinking if I could get a strip for the top of the grill that would protect the paint and add a blue glow after dark it would be subtle but very non ICE.
After reading this thread I am thinking a small "Powered by Tesla" signature would add a nice touch.

I really like the "TESLA" logo on the cover under the hood in the prototype RAV EV. I wish that was an accessory we could buy. I wish Toyota would have kept that cover for the production cars. Perfect place for it too!

I don't think Toyota wanted to have prominent Tesla logos anywhere on the car. There are a few if you look close but nothing blatant. I like the idea of a "powered by tesla" windshield logo.
