Hey guys,

Been on these forums for quite a while now, but haven't really posted much except recently. I'm recently a new owner of a black on black 2GS and just started put a few new mods on it. It's obviously still a work in progress but hopefully within the next year or two I will have it show ready. Just thought I would share a few photos with you guys.

Originally when I bought the car it came with these god awful fugly 20" wheels but the car itself was mint inside and out. There was no frame damage, all original welds, leather and interior was mint, compression test was straight across the board and all maintenance records. So my first instinct told me to get rid of the wheels, so I found a guy who was willing to trade them for stock 17" chrome 430 5 spokes. I didn't even care about the fact the 20's had brand new tires and the 17's were bald LOL. The only tasteful mod was the 01+ grille LOL


Here's a few new things I just had installed over the weekend...

Now I know we've all see JDM Toyota Crown blue wide angle mirrors before but these are wide angled and have a built in LED turn signal in the glass which is completely invisible when off.


I also picked up a set of new LED Mirrors covers with built in puddle light on the bottom. The sweet thing about these ones is that they replace the whole upper housing, its not like a cover that goes over the factory housing. They're made from ABS plastic so they're more durable than the fiberglass crap on eBay. I've been debating if I'm going to smoke the lens on the back side of the mirror. Maybe if I get the JDM black chrome headlights.



I also pick up a set of Grazio&Co. black chrome emblem set with black chrome trunk bar. To match the black chrome I also picked up a set of Insurance smoked LED taillights and topped it off with super bright white LED License plate lamps


I also have a few toys I haven't installed yet and still have a long line of products I plan to pick up for my baby but she's on her way. Stay tuned!

Very nice so far man. In that last picture your car looks GGP. Was the kit for your side mirrors one of those ebay kits or what? Also smoked your Insurance tails?

GGP? Not familiar with the term. As for the mirrors, eBay? *barf* LOL, nah those are a little too ghetto in my opinion. I actually I got most of my parts from this company in Tokyo I deal a lot with. The Insurance taillights you can get the normal clear one or smoked. But only the turn signal and reverse is smoked not the whole lens. I think it really complimented the black chrome emblems

It's pretty plain at the moment but give it time I have some Garson interior parts in transit right now waiting to get installed. Next will be suspension, then wheels, then kit

PS: If anyone see's Garson or JP stuff on eBay that **** is FAKE! Sellers are passing it off as real. Support authenticity, real recognize real!
If anyone here has bought JP or Garson items from JunctionVIP, Berlinas2k2, gentek, S2CarbonWorks (All same user). You have been RIPPED OFF!!!

GGP=Graphite Gray Pearl

I think the smoked portion of your tails blends well with the color of the car. Car looks good!
