    2010 Prius
    Last week, a 3 foot tree branch, from a neighbor's old rotted-dying tree, fell on the rear of my pretty blue 2010 Prius. The damage was centered on the spoiler / fin. My neighbor has a scheduled tree cut down in less than a week; bad timing. The blue Prius is my luxury ride; I drive blue when I'm trying to keep up image standards. Perhaps this is why I should [change my tune] not have nice things. My silver daily driver doesn't care for pretty; she's my workhorse. A used/new spoiler ranges from $130 - $300 + labor; insurance has a deductible. No-go. I decided not to involve the insurance nor the neighbor and take care of it myself since I have 3x Prii on inventory. I decided to just swap out spoilers from my silver daily Prius with my pretty blue Prius. Some stuck plastic grommets gave me pause. It took an hour to do, but the rain drug it to 3 hours.
