10 Min - FULL BUILD - Rebuilding 2015 Toyota Prius Wrecked From Auction - At Home DIY

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Picked this Prius from Copart to be my daily driver. Its a 2015 with 23,000 miles. I honestly cant stand prius cars and how the owners drive. After driving the F350 Dually as my daily driver to work for about a year, i decided to pull a trigger and get me a prius as a daily driver for work and start saving money on gas, honestly, i should have done this a lot sooner and could have saved thousands by now on gas and afford more parts haha.

Anyways, after driving the prius now daily i cant mentally force myself to drive slower than 75mph on the freeway, just feels weird, but i now understand why all prius drivers drive so slow around town and go like 55-60mpg on the freeway, thats kinda where the sweet part is, i tried it once at 3am driving like 55 and yes it was getting like a zillion MPG but i would go insane haha. So anyways im happy with my 40MPG driving normally.

So here is a full build from start to finish in 10 minutes, I didnt think the car had frame damage, but in fact the frame rails moved over 1" to the side and one rail went 1/2" up, So this was a challenge trying to figure out how i can DIY a frame machine pulling system at home to pull the rails back in their place. I used winches, a laser and i was impressed that in the end the car ended up being laser straight and now shes my daily driver and im actually enjoying it a lot.... But i do have a huge plan that i have always wanted to do, a V8 WRD Manual Prius Track car (after i finish my Eleanor build) ... ok hope you guys enjoyed the vid!!
