THIS SET COMPLETELY CHANGES THE LOOK AND FEEL OF THE UGLY SILVER PANEL AND SHIFT KNOB TO MATCH THE REST OF THE PRIUS "v's" appearance to match the rest of the black satin finish of the dashboard..
A NEW removed from a NEW car flawless OEM switch start-stop, park , hazard warning panel and an OEM Prius"v" shift knob has been carefully stripped of the thin "vacuum deposited" thin aluminum coating, carefully sanded smooth. A durable epoxy primer and three layer textured aircraft instrument panel finish has been carefully applied fully cured for six months to achieve a long lasting hard wearing surface.
Three sets of these were custom made. One went to an individual who ordered it made at much higher cost than this listing. I liked it so much, that I made two more sets. One now resides permanently on my own personal Prius"v" and the second set is on sale here.
The panel and shift knob received no ordinary painted finish. The entire vacuum deposited aluminized silver tone finish on both pieces had to be carefully and completely removed with careful hand sanding using 400 grade wet sanding paper. A special black aircraft instrument panel epoxy primer and three successive layers of textured aircraft instrument panel finish was carefully with an airbrush. The pieces were initially cured in a temperature controlled drying booth for 48 hours. This effectively "polimerizes" the finish for a tough and more durable finish than just paint. Curing in another 6 months means that the finish is optimized for durability.
Installation is simple and easy. COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOTED HERE. The shift knob unscrews by and the replacement screws on in its place. Snap switch panel off, unclip three electrical connectors and snap out the switches. Replace the original panel and snap everything back. That's all there is to it.. Easy to follow INSTRUCTIONS are included. You get to keep your original parts which can be replaced in less than twenty minutes.
This sale is for the complete “ready to install” custom black finished OEM switch panel and shift knob only. No other item or part shown in other representative photos or the OEM shifter and knob used for comparison is included.
