Travis Munson (@travislmunson), a facilities strategist at Rivian and former Tesla employee, took delivery of his Glacier White R1T on Friday, and proceeded to share images of the company’s first production vehicle on Twitter.

One eagle-eyed Twitter user noticed some apparent and disproportionate panel gaps in the fit and finish of Munson’s R1T — a manufacturing inconsistency that Tesla has caught a lot of flak for.
To be clear, I don’t actually care about that stuff, it’s just all these hypocrites call out Tesla for it when it’s not as bad as this…. pic.twitter.com/MRCdRTTbun

Munson took a road trip to Chicago as soon as he got his hands on the R1T, posting updates to Twitter from the road. He’ll definitely be going on a lot more road trips, and you can follow along @travislmunson.
