    I usually do it after certain mileage just to keep my fuel system happy. You'll need a tool to unlock the fuel basket and do the replacement.

    Clean fuel means better flowing system and also less strain on the fuel pump.

    Spent 4 hours up & down the hoist with wheels on & off for the rear to fine tune the ride height.

    Since these are only height adjustable meaning you can't tune the dampers to match the spring rate. I ended up running not too low as I wanted to clear my upcoming wheels as well as my chassis bars.

    Noticed how much lower the side bar is when I'm now shooting the photo not from low angle. It was really dark so not a clear shot.

    Sleeper Prius C that can handle well ;)

    New Rims!

    Advanti Storm S1 16x7 ET38
    Michelin Pilot Sport 4 - ST 205/50/16

    Rear could do with more aggressive offset. Pretty happy with how it looks except I would prefer the silver to be flat silver instead of a metallic shine silver with black base.

    Painted the calipers over the weekend to make them match the new rims better! I'm thinking if I should add any decal on the caliper to make it special. GR looks decent too!

    Specially requested colour by my fiancee as she misses my previous ride and wish to have the same traits.

    Decal the caliper? What do you guys think? GR = Gazoo Racing which is sort of like the new TRD for Toyota.

    Retrofitted Scion FRS/Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ seats!

    Did a rail swap and some slight grinding to make the rail sits wider to fit onto the chassis as the seat's original rail are narrower and Prius C/Aqua rail are wider. It's also possible to swap rails without grinding the seat mountings but it would then make it very difficult to slide the seats adjustment.

    Also swapped out the cabin T10 for some warm white LEDs which are much brighter likewise for the boot light.

    DIY vinyl wrapping with my fiancee

    Still left with rear quarter panel, 3 doors & rear bumper. Bumper is tough due to it's curves and edges and also partly due to the vinyl we got isn't the best.

    DIY wrapped the headliner and blacked out the A & B pillars as well!

    C pillar is a little pain in the arse to remove + the seat belts are tough to dismantle at the rear thus we shall leave it as it is for now.

    Kudos to you sir! Wrapping the front bumper cover on the C is impossibly difficult. I tried once and gave up. Nice work on the headliner and the sun visors as well.

    Has anyone tried to replace the cloth cover on the arm rests? Mine are not in good shape. Would like to replace them with Alcantera or leather or at least some nicer cloth, but I'm not sure how they come off.

    Yeap. Gotta agree it's a PITA to wrap the bumper. I gave up trying to wrap in a single vinyl as I fear that I may not have sufficient vinyl to afford wasting more as I wasted one try already. So for now we're using knifeless tape to wrap in multiple pieces. Still not perfect though but we're leaving it as it is for now.

    Our arm rests are PVC leather not cloth type. However I do think that you should be able to dismantle it and rewrap in PVC leather or genuine leather easily. I advise against Alcantara as it's not a material that's suited for body contact especially if it contact with moisture.

    It's much less hygienic comparing to leather as well.

    Stoptech Steel Braided Brake Hose for that extra reliability and modulation feel. They are rated to 4500 PSI!

    Changing factory halogen fog to LED fog. Comes with harnesses, button and mounting but I didn't need them as my ride already has fog light thus those are kept as spare.

    Brightness test! Don't worry they are not glaring to other road users. Safety first ;)

    Aftermarket ARB front and rear. Changing out the existing rear ARB for this design as it's mounting position is more correct in the sense that it's connected to the struts not the spring seat of the dead axle. Similar to TRD's

    Also changing out the 4 point front lower member to these new babies for better triangulation.

    Reinforced adjustable endlinks to ensure ARB are neutral and not pre-loaded.



    Some more mods to come before track day...
