    Where do I begin? :)

    When I got my Prius, it was more of a "Patchwork Prius". It is an ex-Taxi that didn't have a good life before I got it. When I bought it, it looked like this:

    After the first parts car and a lot of effort, it looked like this:

    After buying an entire parts car last weekend, it now looks like this:

    I've even managed to fine the tonneau cover for the rear boot, which is something I've been looking for, for quote awhile now! Both passenger doors have been replaced, the passenger front fender, the bonnet (hood) and bumper. I have replaced missing or damaged (holes drilled for meters, etc.) interior parts, but for the most part, it now looks like a regular Prius! I'm replacing the carpeting next week and a few more bits on the interior, but for the most part, the car has really made a complete change in its appearance.

    I have roughly 432,896km on it, which is roughly 268,989 miles, and she runs like a top! That, actually, is the reason I traded for this car, despite its original condition. Very strong running and mechanically sound, despite the condition it was in when I got it. :)
