    They are great! The hood has the same texture as the dash and looks like it is OEM. The leather armrest cover is a perfect match color wise.

    If anyone is considering ordering from Robin...do not hesitate to do so. The sale and delivery went very smoothly.

    I have had my ABS one for around 5 months now...with no problems at all. It survived the 115+ temperatures we had with no warping or sagging!

    The only issue I has was with the clearance on the sides of the hood. On the picture on EBAY the bottom of the sides of the hood are almost flush with the top of the dash. When I received mine it had at least 1/4 inch clearance above the dash...and you could see the velcro holding it on. However, I emailed them and they replaced it immediately. The new one is better, but still has more clearance then the EBAY photo.

    It definately does what it is supposed to do...the MFD is pretty much always in the shade!

    I would recommend it to anyone too!

    RobinRedBreast is Priushoods on eBay

    I have the console cover, armrests, glovebox covers and driver's side dash cover all in black leather for my 2005. They look great. I love them so much I'm considering getting the armrests and console covered in leather from an auto upholstery shop.

    I also have the hood in leather, but I think I'm going to move up to the ABS.

    Ooo, she now has a key fob cover. Real nice for those with the SKS.

    I wish I had known of the ABS product seven months ago....did it exist then? I got the leather one and it sucks. The damned thing's warped so badly it won't even reach the velcro pads to which it was meant to stick. I was initially quite enthused about the product, but I certainly wouldn't buy or recomend it anymore.

    I took your advise on August 23rd and ordered from Robin on eBay (and paid ASAP)...two weeks later I still have not received my items...So if you do order, be prepared to wait... <_<

    I would e mail her and make sure everything is ok. I think mine took a week to ship. SHe said she was quite busy at the time.

    I received my items today, and they are of VERY good quality. :) I would also recommend these items from Robin, but just make sure you do not want them ASAP.

    Renocat -

    How easy was it to install the armrest covers and center console cover? Did you have to remove the armrest itself, or the door panel itself?

    I only got the center console cover. It slips on with 2 velcro straps.

    I just received my center armrest cover this week, it only took about a week to get it, not even sure it got in because I was on vacation but I know that when I ordered it, Robin was on vacation too.

    As Renocat said, it's really easy to install and looks good and feels much better than the original fabric which was irritating me during my 1800 mi. of driving earlier this week. If nothing else it can always be removed to reveal pristine fabric underneath!

    I hate the fact that Toyota decided not to put padding in the center armrest. My elbow was killing me. I bought the leather armrest cover on EBay and put my own 1/8" dense foam padding under the cover. Works like a charm! I love my padded armrest, and it's looks stock. There was still room under the cover for the velcro straps to hold on.

    We just got the leather key fob holders - I like 'em. DH was worried about his key getting beat up in his pocket . . . now, he doesn't have to worry.

    I've got the center arm rest from Prius Hoods and really like it - anybody have the door arm rest covers? I was wondering how hard they would be to install . . . seems like I saw someone say it was a problem, but I can't find the thread now. I also got the leather glove box cover, and the Velcro won't stay fastened down at the bottom. Not sure what to do - thought I'd email Robin and ask her.

    I see they are no longer listed. Anyone know anyone else who sells the arm rest overs and console covers? I have three kids and they are super messy. I am becoming a spastic mom over the dirt issues. S.O.S.
