Wink What's black & white & red all over?

This 'aint no Neffy Wrap...


Only visible trace of the Toms GT shifter:


Yes, I have the rest of the IS-F trim pieces too...










On to version 5.2. Color-matched my headlight housings Glacier Frost Mica:


This other funny-looking Lexus kept trying to butt into my pictures... I like my brakes & wheels better...






With one of the Brem-Bros, the one and only Noz.


Thanks to Troy Sumitomo of FiveAxis Design, Jim, Danni, and Jaime at Race Technologies/Brembo N.A., Jim, Daniel, and Sergio at Performance Tube Bending, Brandon Rios at Longo Collision, Tommy Leung of Music Box, and finally Joe Z for being my brake bleeding assistant.

Why, as a matter of fact, yes - I did.


The Brembo GT kit for the 2IS was designed on my car almost two years ago. So, after long last, the Brembos have come home!




A little more red... Custom matte finish IS-F tails by FiveAxis Design:


Took the Pace Car with the newly installed Italians up to NorCal last weekend...


Snoopy enjoyed the scenery


Now on to version 5.0.










I guess we can call this 5.1:
Custom painted FiveAxis lip with matte black accents:


Custom fabricated matte black front grille:




More black and white: INGs+1 hybrid rear, molded with matte black center section:






Ready for the show?


Showtime. IS-F gauge cluster.


Custom perforated red leather and alcantara steering wheel by TurinModel:

Very nice, especially like the BBK.

Not feeling the exhaust tips though.
