    If you can find someone who rebuilds hybrid batteries they'll have lots of spare parts so you can easily swap out the Cardone covers and labels so it look like a stock OEM Toyota Battery again. Also when you buy the replacement battery you'll have time to compare everything to make sure everything you return is the same as what arrived with the new one. Super easy once you find a rebuilder with piles of parts lying around.

    Only for reference:

    My toyota dealer accepted my Cardone Batt as a Core.

    Final Cost Installed @ Toyota Dealer:

    G9510-47031 Battery Assy = $1847.50
    Labor cost = $360
    Tax = 253.87

    Total : $2461.36

    Thanks for the follow up... Glad they were ok with the spray painted covers!
