Default Hoovey2411's Official Master Build Thread

Hey CL, so I've decided to give myself an official build thread so I have a place to share new photos and mod progress, as well as compile the few threads I have of past all into a master thread. This first post will be updated for any new photoshoots and additional mods.

Also I wanted to thank the CL community. I've been a member since 2008, and since day one the forum experience has been nothing short of awesome. There is so much collective information, expertise, and opinions, that one can't help themselves but get lost for hours at a time . I've met so many new friends from local meets and get-togethers, and learned so much about my IS in the near 3 years of ownership that I have no regrets from purchasing a Lexus. I never thought I would "mod" my car other than tint, but after being inspired by other members rides and the aftermarket parts available, a vision slowly came together. A perfect car would not need to be modded. But since perfection is so hard to achieve straight from the manufacturer, we tailor them to our specifications of what the car should be. Turning something ordinary into something special. There's still so much more work to do, but I've told myself I will not stop until I've achieved my vision. I'm very proud to be part of this family. Thank you CL!!
