    Quick question since I'm about to install it after doing the shifter applique yesterday. Is it the same 3M tape that Toyota uses? Has anyone who's installed the steering wheel applique had any problems with it coming loose?

    I don't know if its official or not, but it seems to holding up well for my car and I believe I was one of the first, but I'm not in extreme temperature ranges here in Bay Area, CA

    I do not know if it is the same as the Toyota one. I have installed it end January this year outside at around 10°C. Warmed it up a bit with a hair dryer and it is sitting firm and tight. High and dry a sailor would say. Can really recommend it.

    We're already up to 35°C, so maybe I'll be the 'hot' test case. ;)

    Installed it last week, holding up just fine, gloss looks perfect with the rest of the dash.

    I purchased a black plastic cover recently on eBay. The ad said it was only for the Prius Prime, but my local Toyota dealer told me that the original part (the white part being covered) were the same part number on the Prius and the Prius Prime. It fit perfectly. The cost was about $16. This is a much better solution than painting it.

    FOr the gearshift panel appliqué, do you transfer over the buttons or does it go right on top? I have a gash that is a sore sight and would like to get a cheaper replacement instead of paying for a full entire part. If it goes on top, wouldn’t the buttons be depressed in?

    I forgot that this thread was still around. Do you mean the pictures of what I did with the plasti-dip or other pictures?

    How well is that lasting? Like new or peeling?

    It’s been almost 4 years and it’s still perfect. When I clean it I wipe it gently though.

    I have not found any other matte black solution. I may try that on my 2017.
