    I added USB Ports to driver and passenger side areas. Had to remove the armrest, placed a power port inside the armrest, plugged it in for power in the Cigarette lighter port and used its two 3.0 USB ports to plug in my extensions. Had to cut into the sides so the attachments could pop in.

    Do you mind sharing a picture of your wood dashboard kit? I notice you had one by the USB port? Thanks

    Actually the "Blizzard White Pearl" Body Kit already had PPF, but now I have additional protection from UV on my carbon and JDM headlights (y)

    Took off the rear door clear plastic film bits. Warmed up with heat gun, picked at a corner and slowly pulled off. Glue residue took some elbow grease: WD40 on a rag, and some dabs of car polish got it done, but took a while.

    Some of the edges we’re getting a bit groddy so I figured it was time. I guess their intent is protection but not sure how necessary, and it seems like a grunge magnet, might promote rust.

    You added weight to you Prius with this Gee Gaw. A thing that will have no measurable difference in performance, except for the theoretical less MPG due to the weight.

    And from the scraping of the bottom that you have been doing, this Gee Gaw going to get damaged next time you scrape bottom.

    But man, when it's jacked up in the air and you can see that thing,,, beauty!:cool:

    its surprisingly handles a lot better i can definitely feel the car being more stable especially on turns, i would say its worth getting if you want less sway when your turning.

    When you make a claim and bill norton sits with his arms crossed, he actually wants hard evidence so you’ll have to measure the lean of the car chassis as you turn using degree angles and change of center of gravity. If not, he ll be your biggest critic.

    Hard evidence is to install on your own car. We are posting based on pure experience. We are not trying to dispute or prove anyone wrong that it works or it doesn’t work. To each his own. I’m a believer! I’ve had mine on for a decade! It’s amazing!

    Same comment. Enjoy

    Yes ! Gee Gaw Looks nice ! Feels amazing! Way better than stock! Worth the weight and a few less mpg. So what when it handles better than stock.

    I don’t have the time to do my own video proof but bill is more than happy to sit in my car and compare it to his stock Prius then he’ll understand and feel the difference

    I'm glad Grit is onboard with science based proof.

    Look gang, I know cars and suspension mods.
    Bigger Badder Anti-Sway bars, stiffer, slightly lower springs, stiffer struts will all have measurable performance increases.
    They will make the car feel more go-kart like by reducing suspension 'suppleness'.
    But the real increase will be sticky summer tires. I'll put those on my stock Level 5 17" wheels and let's meet at an Auto Cross track. (JK) Those numbers are not opinions.

    But who really believes that the Prius structure is so floppity and bendable that a few Pretty Gee Gaws bolted to the very center of the car's 'tunnel' will have any measurable effect?
    I'll tell you who: The Vendors that sells the Pretty Gee Gaws.(y)

    Some even bolt on way in the back, 3 ft from the rear suspension, where the trailer hitch would bolt on, only this 'thing' is pretty. (I'm going with an ugly steel trailer hitch,,, and I'm sure my skid pad G's will be better because of the 'stiffness' it provides...:whistle:)

    Kids, clear coat or give those Gee Gaws a wax job to keep them looking pretty. :cool:

    Please, we've been through this years ago.
    I don't care, except when you convince others that there is something to these dealios.:unsure:
    Please ignore this post....:(
