Was watching the episode of Wheeler Dealers with the DeLorean the other week. They were saying the stainless steel was resistant to rust and scratches, but not dents. The panels that had dents had to be removed to be straightened and they had to get a bloke in to refinish the brushed steel by hand. Looked a right fuck on.Brushed stainless steel just means it’ll be impossible to clean - DeLorean built it’s cars with it and said to remove grease marks to brush it with a Brillo pad soaked in petrol.
Musk reckoned it shattered because they earlier walloped the door with a sledgehammer, compromising the glass. Doesn't answer why the rear window smashed anarlI understand it is bullet proof as it will stop the bullet. It isn’t shatterproof however, a completely different characteristic. Tesla misinterpreted the specs it seems. Unless it was done on purpose.
