    Collection of photos

    Got my Prius tinted a couple of days ago and just washed it today so decided to take some pictures. I believe it's 35% all around, cost me $300. :/
    I want to get a sun strip on the front eventually when I get around to taking it back.
    Also just had brand new Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires put on there too.

    Even though the paint is all swirly it still shines like new after a wash!

    I know it's black but it looks winter grey , particularly in the 4th photo. You also need to block the grille ;) (yes even in YYJ).

    New pics. :D

    Since winter is almost over I've just decided I'll be blocking the grille next winter instead.

    Shiny! (Why remove the old pics?)

    Lemme know how much the windshield shade band will cost. I kinda missed that as we had it on the Camry.

    I accidentally deleted all the text when editing. :(

    The person who did the windows said it would be $20 for the windshield band which I thought was reasonable enough.

    Not bad. The man who did mine offers a lifetime warranty against turning purple, bubbling and peeling though so I'm fine spending another 10 on not have to potentially doing it again.

    Nice. I'll take a pic when mine's fully winterized... that is to say covered in mud lol.

    Careful not too fully block the upper grille. 50% is the max that Ken@Japan recommends because the inverter radiator has been relocated to the top.
