    Hello Accordlayingkit !!!

    I am not using the MGP Caliper Covers at this time.

    The covers are slightly larger than the OEM Calipers to help hide the original calipers behind them.

    From most angles I would say you will not be able to see the originals behind.

    Hope this helps !!!

    Hi Rodney, love what you've done to your Prius. I found your post while searching for the engine bay covers. I am wondering where you purchased them and what it cost you?

    I've searched the parts you listed and am now looking for a reliable source.

    Thank you,
    Mark

    How are the headlights holding up after shaving them then using the tape and silicone? Any leaks or fogging up with the lights?

    Hey there Swaggingprius !!!

    Very nice modification, yes I noticed you were able to change the background drop (housing correct?)

    :):):):)

    Hello Accordlayingkit !!!

    The silicone seal had no leaks, however with the actual housing seal I did experience 1 leak.

    I have since re-sealed the housing and have had no leaks thus far !!!

    Hi again, I found a Japanese supplier and got everything (except the push pins) delivered for $112. The shipping was quick and the parts were all OEM Toyota in the proper boxes and bags.

    Here's the site for anyone else who's searching. jp-carparts.com

    Does the engine dress up that says "Toyota Genuine JDM PRIUS PRIUS V engine room cover set 2009 - 2014" fit the 2012 prius five model? I know in the description it says for the "V" so does it fit the "V" and the reg prius?

    I have a question about your caliper covers. Are they paintable? I cannot find caliper paint or covers in a shade of red that doesn't look cheesy on my red Prius

    ^More than likely eBay... that's where I jus got mine. Cheapest I could find was $142.99 shippd for the 3 piece set... inverter cover only you'll probably pay around $99. In eBay search box jus type in "Prius JDM engine covers"

    Toyota Genuine JDM Prius Prius V Engine Room Cover Set 2009 Present | eBay

    I ordered from this seller and even though it says ships from Japan... I got it in 3 days DHL.. pretty crazy.... must be already stored over here somewhere
