BeansIS IBP L-Tuned Revival II

So after another long trip in one day to Orlando. I now own this.....




Specs are below:
2003 Lexus IS300
133k
Non-Factory L-tuned
L-tuned Front
L-Tuned Rear
L-Tuned Sides
L-Tuned Sways ( Not installed )
Carson Tuned Exhaust
PIAA Fogs
SRT Intake with ECU
15% tint
S2000 Antenna

Included where the L-Tuned fender badges and I already have the dash badge. Thanks to Ledrobert (sp?) a few years back. The car is extremely sun faded due to the Florida sun. Similar condition to my GGP iS300 but the paint is worse. I have to repaint front bumper, rear bumper and roof. Debating on what to do with the trunk as its faded, but not horrible. meh.

I'll update more as I get a day off.

Nice car! Are those 18's?

Btw, I like your username. I have a buddy that calls his Beams engine "Beans" all the time.

02' Manual w/MKIII LSD and no sunroof.

So here are some over all pictures of the car. You can see the sun damage is rather severe on the roof, trunk and bumpers. The rest of the car is very salvageable as far as the paint goes. I did a test section today to see what it could be restored to. Today I also ordered the two 02 sensors needed and the VVTI solenoid it also needed. Ill be detailing the car this saturday and miraculously I got it off.













Test area:







That dash though... 🤔

You bought a beautiful car! Don't get discouraged. I just bought a SportCross and budgeted in an aesthetic overhaul plus maintenance. It'll be a month or so project and then done.

Enjoy your new car! It's awesome!

were you able to change the O2 sensors without dropping the whole exhaust/headers?
