Talking From stock to VIP build in about a month

Hey CL,

The parts on the car will be:

Air ride system with custom control and pancake mode.
Custom switch install to keep interior looking stock.
VIP modular VR05's 20x9.5 w 3"lip 20x11 w 4"lip they will tuck in rear.
Is-f black carbon top steering wheel
Is-f carbon shifter
Carbon engine cover
JDM TOY full interior lighting kit, license lights and revers bulbs
Carson roof wing
Carbon wrap on the stock wood .
8000k HID upgrade
8000k FOG HID KIT
Vertex full lip kit
Full suede roof, pillar wrap and Blacked out buttons ie. Sunroof, light button on roof.

Yeah, well since I was in the military before, my dad got to mess with my vehicles when I had them shipped back home. So he enjoys this kind of hobby also.

Now i ontract and he has nicer toys of mine to mess with. Haha.
My plan is to get back and it be complete so I can put my other Lexus for sale.

LUTZ is a very reputable shop in the Tampa, FL area and they are taking good care of my car and doing a little extra for me on this build.

VIP modular is setting me up nicely with the wheels and Jovan, my buddy at the shop has built some clean a$$ cards.

I will keep you updated as soon as I get more pics. I am very excited about this build!

Looks like your off to a good start! Not your first build either, so you know what you're doing. Nice that your dad is helping out. You got the best color, so it'll be something I want to see. Good luck! How can you stand being so fat away from your car? Must be tough. Why are you over seas?

Yeah, def not my first build. I wish I was home to actually get involved with it more but it is what it is.

Sffd103,
I actually have your car as my background.lol

I am overseas due to it was my best career choice with my military background. The job is in random places but the contract money is, well more than enough.

As far as being away from my car..lol.
It sucks, I will be home soon though.
