That's cool your mom wants the ADR's back lol

And your right. The headlights do make the side markers a lot more suitable.

lookin clean so far. Keep it up!

well i got my car back tonight. ive had my kit for around 4 months and finally got it installed. i was happy with everything except the grill. my body guy didnt install the grill right... so ive got to fix that tomorrow hopefully. but here is a teaser until i can wash it again and finally take some good pictures.



EDIT: here's another picture.. but i dont really want to bump this up... i had to take my l-sportline grill off cus the guy (body shop) screwed it up. but it should be back in before the weekend.

Looking good, now clean your car and post some daytime pics

If you haven't already painted your calipers, I suggest black with white logos.

Here's mine (but with silver decals)

i finally got time to wash my car since getting it back from the body shop. but here's a list of things i've got done so far...

Work Emotion XD9 18x8 +45 all around
Tanabe Sustec Pro S-OC Type II
Blitz Nur Spec Exhaust
TRD Rep. Front Lip
L-Tuned Rep. Sides and Rear Lip
Painted Black Headlights with JDM Style Turn Signals and Chrome Rings
Painted Black Fogs
DIY Black Pearl Emblems
15% Tint











has any one tinted the third brake light on the spoiler? im thinking it would look better red...


The pictures didn't turn out the greatest but thats ok. im not satisfied with the exterior of my car yet. so when i finally get it done i'll get some better quality pictures.

but now i'm working on fixing my l-sporstline grill, getting my tail lights, and painting my calipers. OH and redo-ing my emblems. (any one have a rear "L", "Lexus" and "IS 300" for sale??)

then i have to decide if i want JDM window visors and/or a ugo roof spoiler...

then once my exterior is done its on to my turbo kit. ive got the majority of my kit now. im just slowly piecing everything together

and at some point i want to get some 18x9's in the rear... or new rims all together. and LSD.

anyway. this should be it for my updates for awhile. its almost winter here so i wont be doing much..
