  • Wow these cars are poorly made.

  • Elon Musk aint pleased

  • Hi Rich fair play to you & your buddy for salvaging & recycling Tesla cars. My brother's brother-in-law Brendan salvages old cars in County Kerry, Ireland. I am going to tell him about your RU-tv channel. Don't think he has salvaged electric cars yet. Best wishes from Dublin, Ireland.

  • How on God's green earth are going to put that thing back together?

  • get the mask with the "exhale valve"; you'll thank yourself...

  • just got into your page.. your dope af bro!!! appreciate you!

  • This is a good advertisement for the auto shop owner, he obviously knows cars

  • Thanks for making such videos. Big fan of your channel ..I am from India.

  • Make sure you run an ozone machine in the car to kill any mold you miss. You'll want to shock it with ozone repeatedly. Preferably with an oxygen fed unit or something over 40g/h. Don't waste time with the little boy units, you want an actual industrial ozone generator to blanket that sewage car in blue death.

  • Where are you streaming the vids? The chat overlay doesn't look familiar.

  • Someone should swap a tesla with a cummings diesel... and roll some coal in front of tesla :D

  • electrolytic bath...

  • I would go insane trying to keep track and remember, what I removed, what is still good, what isn't . what is missing etc! amazing!!

  • Can you get new interior from Tesla because I need some more

  • I actually love the long video

  • Rich you should open up your own Tesla repair shop with the RU-tv money ur making. That would be awesome.

  • This guy is an auto tech of some sort no way most people out there have the time and patience to do this. Not worth my time in my opinion. Also Tesla has a terrible reputation for fit and finish so as soon as water gets to those electronics they are toast.

  • Have ever thought about approach some 3rd party manufacturing company to replace some parts.

    • Phantom096 He has no say in it......if you have the ability to manufacturer stuff he can't do any thing....

    • Pete Le Boydre Elon Musk would never allow that.

  • Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed

  • Let it be known that my phone experienced the Boot Loop of Death (Nexus 6P) while watching this video. :)

  • nasty

  • I love the Idea of the tesla but I hate the execution - not the vehicle itself, but the tesla companies policies regarding parts and service - the parts for these cars are ridiculously expensive and its easy to see that tesla doing its very best to create a sealed system where once you own one, you are their prisoner financially if something goes wrong. I dont like the idea of not having any options parts wise. Bless Rich for doing these videos, like he said no one else is doing it, but I believe this is largely because of the expense of the parts involved. @rich youre one ballsy dude, having a car as technically advanced as one of these and not having the dealer as a course of last resort for a tricky problem would scare the sheet out of me, especially after spending 20k on something that will likely need almost every electric component on it replaced.

  • thats the fakest slip/fall

    • you didn't see the bruises afterwards

  • pmsl@chabka34"you have some car on your mold"

  • cant wait till you get 100k subs, been watching for a while and thanks for keeping us entertained and informed but mostly entertained, keep up the awesome content

    • Carl gotta keep up the meme worthy annotations ahaha

    • you are welcome, glad to have you with us on this journey

  • whats with the donation link?

    • care to clarify your question?

  • This is so fun to watch. Quick question: Where did you get your training from? Im really interested in learning

  • this is how you dismantle a car for the first time, just video/document it so you'd know where to put evrything back again, and stream while you're at it, XD

  • I'm waiting for the 12 minute version

  • I cannot for the life of me work out why a company that prides itself on being at the forefront of electric car design would use resistors to control a fan motor. Its pretty poor in this day and age using resistive control an ICE car but in an electric vehicle where every watt is valuable its inexcusable. PWM control is highly efficient and very cheap.

  • The computer is likely salvageable but you are going to need figure out or get someone else to properly clean it, I've salvaged computers that have been left out to rot and still managed to have some of them working in the end despite being full of leaf matter ect.

  • Did you ever put power on the flooded car to see if anything comes on?

  • wow , how much computers in it ?

  • Il bet you brake the record to hit 100k subscribers in a short time

  • Tesla will not tow my boat and range over 600km with the boat on tow, they are a gimmick at best. My 4x4 does on one tank of fuel. Suck on this Tesla.

  • Yaaay Carl!

    • cheers :)

  • Plastic fantastic

  • Start as a kid by trading your toys instead of begging for them.

  • too busy hard to follow ! Live

  • I love how carl left in the part about how we gotta respect him, since he's the editor and this is edited. Respect Carl, respect. Also how is Rich using a drill to dismantle a car LMAO, its 2018 a cheap 12v impact would be so much better

    • "respect my authoritah" :)

  • soon 100k

  • Not gonna lie rich, I ain't got time for 55mins.

  • IN MEMORIAM: Rich's lungs, RIP

  • Pull that moldy steering wheel Takata time bomb it’s in the way!!!!

  • Any plans for your channel reaching 100k subscribers?

  • Do you stream on twitch?

  • I am sure that Rich catalogs every part, every screw in a very orderly manner. He has the shop manual with exploded drawings and diagrams so he can put everything back exactly as it should be .... NOT .... or does he?

    • LOL I was being facetious. It would be cool if he could build a whole new interior. The coachwork in TESLA is a bit basic. Minimalist, but basic. Rich is not like Sandy Munroe ... (he's a benchmarker for the car industry. Takes them apart and does catalog everything and then goes through how the car was manufactured ... brilliant guy!). I have a lot of respect for Rich though. Good man!

    • Gerhard Kutt I don't think he's putting this car back together

  • Loving the channel....sent a small donation.

    • cheers.

  • Best of luck to you if plan to run that existing wiring harness. Gonna have electrical gremlins for months.

  • Rich about to hit 100k, back under 10k I was like, hey this guy's interesting. His channel exploded in the last months.

  • The story's of the injuries support my statement that guy is not safe.

    • even the most competent of mechanics will suffer those sort of injuries.... and we don't do competent here at Rich Rebuilds :)

  • I like that Coupe Quattro in the background at the end :)

  • can you shorten these livestreams?

    • this was shortened from 4 hours

  • Thanks for the cutdown but dude. Still an hour long video? You can do better. 20mins max! Please please please 😀 i asked nicely didn’t i?

    • sorry but no. such a edit would be worthless, would remove the entire heart of the experience. this was shortened from 4 hours to 1. enjoy it.

  • Heater is @ 400 volts so they can push more amperage through it. Takes a lot of energy to heat something.

  • blow up the air bag

  • Lol respect Carl. I used his name multiple times on multiple donations...including Elon Musk hahaha

    • cheers

  • Why the repeat post?!!!!

    • ? if you mean why the same content, read the description

  • With how much you are spending on this moldy turd, you could have bought a nice used 1

  • Yesss Would be fun to take that computer apart.

  • Excellent video.......tom dont be shy, we love you.

  • That car is never going to work again. Well, it may work but theres not an electrical part in the cabin that wont have to be replaced first.

    • RoadWorthy Its impossible to buy cheap used Tesla, especially if you look for not flooded one with working battery and intact aluminum frame (very hard to repair).

    • Rich has another crashed salvaged donor car for parts. He’s using this flooded Tesla for the shell. Same as he did with Dolores.

    • Yes, I followed the whole Delores build. Not doubting rich's knowledge or talent, and it is his money but by the time hes done I bet it would have been cheaper to buy one that wasnt at the bottom of a lake for 10 days.

    • Did you see the last car he rebuilt?

  • Do you have any rational goals in life?

  • Do you plan uploading a Shorterer and Sweeterer video ? (~10/15min)

    • no

  • 2jz tesla conversion plz

  • $1.53

  • Thicccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkk

  • Live streams just save all your editing to make something half watchable, please stop

    • don't watch then. save yourself a headache :)

  • this must be a earlier stream the last one I seen the dash was out

    • yes this is a trimmed down cut of our first angela mold live stream.

  • you'll hit 100k in two or three days

  • What an absolute mess !!!

  • ecoli or ebola in the air! lol

  • Dude needs a head torch; frees up both of his hands.

  • You can clean electronic circuit boards. Alcohol and a soft brush and blow dry with air.

  • Grimes musty ass probably smell like this car. Rename her

  • Whenever i hear Carl, i think of the Llama. And then faces on balloons. And yes, that's what happens when you go in that YouTUbe zone.

    • aserta Llamas with Hats I concur

    • … ok.... lol

  • Can't wait to watch this later

  • Its not surprising that ford parts are in there, cheapest most abundantly available parts in america. I bet Fords invested in Tesla significantly more in the future now thwt they stopped production with cars

    • I’m not entirely sure if the part is actually made by Ford or by one their supply chain independent car parts manufacturers. Companies like Bosch can contract manufacture parts to any car makers.

  • What's the 100k video gonna be Rich?!

  • You are so legit, Rich. Keep it up. Huge fan!!!
