    I am hoping to get it in the next month or so. I'm thinking of getting it in black.

    I only like the rear bumper. I like the side skirt and the front lip more than the V1 or V2 of the TRD kit. If I can get a great deal on an Aimgain kit I would totally switch but then I would change my wheels as wheel to a 17" or 18".

    Here is a recent photo of my car from the FR-S fundraiser for the Phillipines at Longo Toyota from last Sunday. I didn't take the photo so whoever did take it credit to him.

    You said it was a C1? Is that an aftermarket radio?

    Yes, it is a C1 with a radio from the 2013 toyota highlander. direct Plug and Play. bought the faceplate from Jt torres.


    On another note, I recently Plastidipped the front section of bumper and also tinted the windows.

    I have a grey prius C 2 with 35% tint. Looks similar to yours. Why did you change the radio? What is plastic dip?

    Do a youtube search for plastidip and you'll see some amazing things.

    i changed the radio because the original radio looked out dated when in the C. All the fancy lights on the dash but the radio was a simple old text radio. the new radio fits the C much better. the touch screen actually makes the car feel like a 2013 model now.

    plastidip is basically a plastic type coating that you can buy in a spray paint can. it is used for coating and does not harm the original paint. it basically sprays wet plastic type material and then the spray dries and hardens to become a uniformed piece of "plastic"

    Which peels off like latex when you want to remove it.

    Unless you get the navigation radio the base does look out of place. The base radio I have in my Prius C 2 is a cheap CD radio but has blue tooth. The Prius C is meant to be a cheap car so everyone can afford a hybrid.

    Did you do the plastic dip just for looks or for other reasons?

    Has anyone ordered from this site just curious if it will take an excessive long time or not. Looks to be located in California.

    Though it provides a small modicum of chip protection.

    Hi
    I was wondering how you found out that a Highlander radio would work? Is there any other years or models that will also work? You also said you changed the faceplate, is that necessary? I could not find JT Torres, I assume that is a store. Sorry so many questions. Cheers

    I really like the wind deflector, the part on the hood front right? Where did you find that? I am still new at finding any JDM parts. I have done searches for JDM but do not get much. Cheers
