    I lined the glove box with felt.

    [​IMG]

    I installed constant power to charge and power my laptop, phone, radar detector monitor. And connected the radar detector power to accessory power.

    [​IMG]

    Mounted the radar detector.

    [​IMG]

    Here is a pic of the radar detector with the remote I keep next to the heated seat switch.

    I installed auto head lights. This is the sensor.

    [​IMG]

    I tinded the windows.

    [​IMG]

    I installed the door sills on all 4 doors.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I put snow tires and new rims on.
    [​IMG]

    The rims look very good on the car.

    [​IMG]

    I am going to build one of these to get rid of the low tire light on the dash.

    I installed all winter mats in the front, back and rear hatch. (no pic).

    I mounted my Garmin GPS in the car (no pic). It is 100X better then any factory GPS that cost 10X.

    I had the dealer install a Toyota remote start (no pic) that I paid $350 from Prius chat when I bought the car. I hate the remote start. When a third part device is released I will install a differnt remote start.

    - LED licence plate lights

    - homemade console pads for the cupholders, tray and gloveboxes

    Those illuminated door sills are standard on the Technology Package in Canada as well as wheel locks and a cargo net.

    Judgeless, can you elaborate about how you did the lining of the glove box. Was this a prepackaged set of felt or did you hand-cut each piece? How is it glued in?

    This looks like a great mod!

    I picked up 8.5" X 11" sheets at Joe Ann Fabrics (fabric store) that had sticky stuff on the back. I used paper to created templates and cut to fit. It took about 2 hours.

    Check out my wood dash installation. I did it myself in about 1hr; cost was under $150.00. I really like it![​IMG]

    I will have some time this month to create the pressure chamber. The goal is to put all for TPMS sensors in a PVC tube and leave it in the area by the spare tire.

    I will document everything with pics and post it in the forums.

    This is a “Gen III (2010+) Toyota Prius Forumâ€. Why would one post pics of non Gen III Prius mods?

    I really liked the door sill your Prius. I'm thinking that is my next move on my Prius. I haven't start anything on my car yet, still waiting for that first car payment :eek: But is it easy to install the sill or have to be done at the dealership?

    It was very easy. It took me about 10 minutes. If you order them ask in the forums for .pdf file that goes over how to install them. It will help alot.

    I have done all LED interior and exterior (where possible.) I have ordered HID lights for the brights. I don't use them much, so even if they have a short lived lifespan for the short run times, I can live with that. I also got HID conversions for the fog lights. Yesterday I installed the cool vinyl decals from the store here, and the scangaugeII as well as an e85 conversion kit for the ignition plugs. I am either going to order the all-weather floor mats in the priuschat store, or I am going to steal my mom's genII mats and hope they fit. haha.
