    Thanks for the info Doc,

    Some more questions:

    What kind of tint did you go with and what %?

    Thanks!

    I don't remember off hand. I think it was a 20% metallic tint.

    Not yet. I'm waiting for a auto-tilt in reverse module to arrive before I play with it.

    I was going to order the signal mirrors from Sigma today. I entered all the way down to placing the order. They never had a place to select color. I clicked everywhere I could see. There is no mention of color availability? I see they mention other items being available in certain colors, but the mirrors don't say anything about color. I have read all the threads (I think) I thought the Sigma was available in 3R3 Barcelona? Did I miss something?

    Just type in your car color in the comments section. That's what I did when I ordered mine.

    Thanks. I did not want to be stuck with primered mirrors.

    Just as Vince says, there is a comment field as you check out where you can write an essay if you wish. ;)

    I think we just got your order. Thanks & Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

    You can thank Doc and Vinny for the sale. If it had not been for them and other posts I would have ordered the other signal mirror covers. I would also think english translation of instruction would more than pay for the added sales. That is if you have not already began doing it. I am looking forward to getting them installed. B)

    Man, has it really been a month and half since I posted here? Boy, when life decides to throw you a couple of curve balls, it really does so! Anyway, I'm back, and hopefully things will have calmed down for a while. I do plan on getting back to modding the Prius soon. The only mods done in the past two months are a nice thick layer of dirt and bugs, and a nice big crease my wife put in the passenger side rocker panel turning too close to a curb! Oh well. I still have a box of JL Audio components sitting in my garage waiting to be installed. If you've followed the stereo thread, you'll know just how long it's been. I hope to finish all the stuff I have already soon, and get more stuff by January.

    :D

    Welcome back, my brotha! Hey, you wanna buy your tires and wheels back? I'll give you a good deal.....LOL I figure I'll keep them until I trade this in for another in a couple of years. I ended up getting about 43 with the UHP's. I'm happy. BTW, did you ever get a chance to get the sensor numbers out of your car?

    Mike and Doc,
    Do you guys still love your tires? I'm thinking of picking up the centerline rpms this Friday and I'm still considering the tires. Love the idea of the light Exclaims along with the 215/45 size for some extra sidewall. I have the TRD suspension and BT Brace. I drive about 100 miles a day (mostly freeway) and I'm wondering how rough the ride is on your tires. Thanks guys, love your cars.
    Ron

    Hey Ron!

    Bjorn (Doc) turned me on to them, and I love them. I don't get as good mileage as others, cause my wheels are heavier. WIth the centelines, like Bjorn has, you'll have the ultimate setup. They ride great, and they are very inexpensive.

    Well, I'm really glad I didn't dump my spare and put the sub in the space instead! I got a flat the other day, and I would have been SOL! But I still have some common sense left, and I left it in there. Now I need to find a replacement for the crappy factory jack! Took me over 30 minutes to get it on! At home I can swap out all four corners in 15 with my jack and air compressor.

    Anyway, the next day I started to check the tire for a nail or some sort of puncture. Nothing. The tire is in as good a shape as it can be. So I inflated it to 50 psi to find the leak. Well, I heard some hissing, and started feeling all around the tire for a leak... Nothing. So where is the air coming from. I got a cup of soapy water to help locate it.

    Then I picked up the wheel, and when my hand was on the inside part of the rim I felt some air. To double check I poured some of the soapy water on the spot, and I got bubbles. It's the rim that's leaking, not the tire. The rim has a tiny, virtually invisible crack on the inside surface of the rim!

    I put the tC wheels back on for now.

    I'm calling Centerline now, let's see what they say.

    There's always J-B Weld! :p Seriously, Centerline will probably take care of you. It will be a pain in the nice person, but I'm sure they'll hook you up.

    Doc--
    Have you installed the reverse tilt module yet? I just got mine, but I haven't tried to tackle it yet.

    Thank you. I hope to get back to modding soon. Been just way to busy lately for just about anything. On a positive note though, been saving a lot of money by not spending it on the car!

    First I plan on finishing the stereo and applying lots of Dynamat.

    Then comes the rest of the Tom's braces.

    Then...
