    Modding has slowed sooo much for this car.. Ended up picking up another car as a beater.. Needed another car for work.. All my time and money has been going into that..

    But appreciate the comments!! :)

    And the amount of times I have rented those spring compressors I might as well have just bought my own!!

    Well it has been a LOOOOOOONG time since I have update this thread. I have been doing some things, but have not been able to update this thread because of my new son and a whole lot of other things going.

    First thing I did was add on a set of Yakima roof racks.. Need these to haul our bikes around.. Pic at Formula Drift in West Palm:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Pic during the day at the mall.. Notice the front bumper still is white.
    [​IMG]

    Had to replace the front two top hats because apparently I didn't tighten the top hat bolts tight enough =/
    [​IMG]

    Got my roof wrapped! I have had this material from BlueBatmobile for MONTHS and I finally had time to have it put on!

    Pics before I put back the rear windshield washer nozzle on and antenna.. SO CLEAN
    [​IMG]

    Measured the center for the Shark Fin Antenna..
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    All Done!! Much Nicer :)

    [​IMG]

    Carbon Fiber wrapped the front lip.. Looks nice to me!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I think the front looks good!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Installed the Toyota Hybrid Nation Sticker I got! It is Huge but it matches the size of my I-95 Expresslane Sticker!
    [​IMG]

    And Last New Mod is the JDM Black Piano Steering wheel. FEELS SOOO NICE!! One of the best mods soo far!
    [​IMG]
    Taking everything apart:

    2012 Prius has 2 plugs on the back of the air bag.. not one.
    [​IMG]
    Transferring all the buttons over:
    [​IMG]
    Had a little help :)
