    Is it the angle the pic was taken that makes the line appear off level?

    I had that thought as well... doesn't seem to follow body lines.

    Almost looks like they made it parallel to the door sills instead of the window sills.

    More LEDs (blue bc blue magnetism color) - sure white would be brighter but I like the blues on the front door bottoms and the vanity lights. I have ultra white LEDs for the both map/dome lights:

    you can see I hadn’t yet pushed in the passenger side, just took the pic because I liked it, lol.

    Installed TuxMats and a universal waterproof rear seat cover.

    Wanted something waterproof for back there so spills have no way of getting to the battery (is it protected from moisture from the factory?)

    Looking for simple, easy to remove, water-resistant covers for the front seats. They will be kept on full time. Looking at either:

    Gorla Gear covers:


    Not sure how neoprene does in extreme SW USA summer heat.


    or

    lebogner Car Seat Towel Cover:

    Made me wonder if they were installed correctly on my Prime. It is dark out now so found a pic I took to do some photoshop things with. They look like the sample photo so I guess I got lucky that the installer followed directions

    Changed a flat on the front drives side, 20 miles from home in single digit temps. with wind chill from 15 mph winds.
    I first tried fixa flat without removing the tire stem valve and it froze before I got much of it into the tire - :censored: - .

    Had to call for a ride home, than get an oem wheel and jack out of the basement, drive back change the tire and got home at 1 am this morning. Now I'm carrying a can of fixa flat (I got two last night), a pump jack and an oem spare in the car.

    Never thought of this... but amazing it even came out of the can. Another reason, to carry a spare instead of relying on Toyota's solution to an emergency flat.

    You know you do have a scissors jack under the rear seat?

    I think I am going to start carrying around a spare. I hate not having one.

    Installed neoprene seat covers from Wet Okole today. Very high quality product and great people to work with either via email or on the phone. We went with a very basic design to keep cost down. The color is 'charcoal' throughout instead of their standard two tone with black bolsters and color of choice inside panels.
    High quality product but VERY hard work to install. Unless you have good hand strength, flexibility, and a petite person to help (like my wife) I'd suggest paying an upholstery shop to do it.

    Ball park on how much all of that cost? They look great.

    What if you removed the seats, and like, brought them in your house to do it? Also, do the covers go over the existing covers or are the OEM covers removed?

    I have an LE, and thus the semi-boring one color like grey/tan cloth whatever it is. No powered seats either. At the time of purchase, I was thinking that by not having a bunch of options that the more expensive trims have, my LE would be lighter and thus possibly get a little better MPG/MPGe. I don't notice much of a difference with a 100 pound speaker in the trunk though, lol.

    Nice! I ordered custom neoprene covers for my rear seats from Coverking and got universal quick install waterproof covers for the front seats.

    Have any tips on installing the covers on the rear seats?

    Oddly enough it was a CoverKing instruction video that helped me the most:

    Including 3 bottles of cleaning products and adding a seatback pocket option: $672. Things like piping and custom panel colors add extra if you want it.
    Taking the front seats out would help a lot, but once I'd gotten started I didn't want to stop and go find a star bit for the anchor bolts. The hard part with the front seats is threading straps underneath and behind trim panels. (see video linked in post above)
    This type of seat cover goes right over the original upholstery.

    Did you actually remove the rear seat bottoms like they did in the video?

    Yes, you have to because of the straps. Disconnecting the center seatbelt from the buckle is annoyingly difficult - you can't reach the slot to press the release until the cushion is popped up and loose.

    Yesterday I finally got around to doing the emblem blackout. Used HyperDip spray in Shadow Black (satin) color. I was able to peel the HyperDip off the blue parts easily enough - until I tried it on the "Prime" script on the back hatch. Instead of cleanly peeling off just the inset blue color it unfortunately was releasing from the whole letter. So I stopped at "P" - and actually think it looks kinda cool.

    I ordered these "carbon fiber" look trim cover panels back on Dec 6th. Finally arrived today and I was relieved at how perfectly they fit. A little more glossy than I wanted but I'm happy with it. Mainly wanted to protect the piano black original plastic from dog paws.
