^^Regarding the wheels. These have been two of my favorites for the IS for several years. I think I have narrowed it down, I have been in contact with another my.IS'er who is selling his wheels. I do not currently have the funds to get them, as I am waiting to sell my current setup. He said he might be holding on to the wheels for a little while longer anyway, so I am keeping my fingers crossed we can get something figured out.
Sorry for the huge delay on updates.. I was down in Florida for about a month visiting my fiance's family, and I have been spending the majority of my free time looking for work. That, plus I have two kids at home, so the only time I really have to work on the car is at night.
With that being said, I have made some progress on the Lex. Believe it or not, I am actually getting pretty close. Oh, and don't worry about my ABS lines..
I FUBAR'd two of them, and will be going with SS lines.
head back on:
FTP SS Brake Lines installed (hiding in there), also painted my rotor "hubs" Satin Black to get rid of that rust look:
gauges (A/F and boost) and TT installed:
Had some paypal credit, so more goodies for my battery relocation compliments of Token! With a complimentary magazine!
current state of the car:
A couple more little things have been done since this pic. I will try and get more updated pics tomorrow. I have been doing this entire build on my own (with the exception of the head work). I have never gone this deep into a car before, and have learned a LOT. I owe all of it to these forums and it's amazing members! I have no idea where I would be if it weren't for everybody here. Thank you!! We will see what happens when it's all put back together..
