Default Authentic Vertex 3GS Facelift

Its been a great ride and my car will have to be retired now since I was involved in a rear-end accident that ended the life of the car. I will have other things offered up for sale soon but the first of the bunch will be the front end.

The front end from vertex does not give fantastic support since it is basically secured to the plastic headlight by means of a dinky bracket. I fabricated 4 brackets to hold the bumper in place and it is rock solid. $3200 OBO

Old Price: $3000 OBO 05/15/2013

New Price$2500 OBO 09.30.2014



What is included:

-All brackets supplied by Vertex (literally only 4 brackets 1 on top of headlight 1 on bottom on each side)
-My brackets I made
-Modified hood (had to cut into the undershell to clear the brackets)
-Fenders
-Front bumper to include outer grill, inner hybrid horizontal slat grill and hybrid emblem (all new from lexus)
-side skirts
-lexus fog lights('08+)
-is350 JDM side blinkers
*HEADLIGHTS DO NOT COME WITH THIS KIT you must purchase your own!

A few Q&A:::
Why are you selling this kit for as much as it is Vertex's website?
you get $500+ in extras you DONT get from vertex when purchasing this kit. you also get the side skirts but no rear since it didn't survive the accident. You get my guidance on how to put the kit on correctly and photos of kit installed- you dont get this from japan, you get absolutely no instructions when purchasing this kit new. Also you wont need to pay tax, or shipping from japan. also...look closely...it says OBO


Where are you located?
Sacramento, CA

What year will this fit?
99-05 GS's. Will fit like a glove.

Is there any damage to the kit?
The hood arrived to my house damaged when I first purchased it. It was repaired but you can see repairs on the underside. no biggie (vertex was not at fault for the damage). There are a few stress cracks but it is in the paint and if you plan on repainting- your shop will pretty much clean it up.

Are you willing to ship?
Not at the moment

Will you accept trades?
No

Questions? Feel free to ask.

Yes it is, it stays with the kit though. No separating at the moment.
