    From your post, I have a suspicion we are in the presence of real astro-imaging genius. I think you were being modest. ;) I know, wrong time, wrong forum. :D

    Tires: picked up up a set of new oem prime rims and new never mounted michelin xice tires for $700 for all, pretty nice deal-added some autel mx-sensors which I was able to clone to my summer wheels with an older autel ts401 tool after doing software update to tool.Original sensors would only respond to 2019 reg prius not prime setting on tool so a minor bug there. Also tested oem tire inflator with fluid removed from bottle and it worked fine-I would just plug tire if possible-also plan to carry one winter tire as spare.

    Hi Ray, Thanks for the quick response. so every thing is totally clear to me. raise the right side, I’m working on the floor, raising at a pinch weld using a electric jack from the cars 12V source. So, I loosen the three screws
    At the small somewhat triangular panel and I should see a black filter with white printing on it? Right?
    The reason I’m asking is: I just did this today and could not see anything that looked like a oil filter. in reference to the car, is it forward,rearward,left or right of the opening?
    On the over torqued filter Iv had mechanics do that to me also. The easiest way is to take a large scewwdriver
    And just punch a hole thru the filter and hope you have sufficient turning radius. Can also be messy too.
    Glad to see PC has spellchecker again. Thanks.

    It's within the confines of the oil change door;).

    Now I don't know if you have a canister or the filter element, as I think some early ones had the filter element and then they converted to the spin on later:whistle:.

    But if you were under there, it is in the confines of the oil change door along with the drain plug(y).

    I replaced the steering wheel trim (part from China) and the gear shift trim (stock toyota replacement) with piano black. Also installed vortex generators on the rear part of the roof.

    Im looking into doing a number of modifications and upgrades, little by little.
    My first small modifications were a car charger and dashcam. Some of the pics below are to show how well the wires are hidden from view.

    Looks cool. Where did you get it? Any link? They look best on white body color, IMO.

    Well done. Look very clean.
