your car actually looks like a g35 sedan at quick glance, but better. How long have you owned your GS?

Not to shabby! I love the B.O.B ( black on black ). I think they lime greens will set that thing off perfect. I noticed a bit of that color in some photos already, so it seems your well on your way. What about the engine pieces? will they be re-done to match also?

p.s. Please share the LSx Swap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah i know its been a long time coming. i kind of wished i would have left it to imagination still though. no hood struts yet, i STILL cannot find anyone who blew their hoodshocks so i can buy those. i tried to get FIGS to make some awhile ago but no can do for just one set

i do....maybe lol. i plan to do fabulous profounds in 20's as i hate the cost of 19" tires and the tire choice should be fine. these are probably michelins best street/performance tire that isnt just a full blown performance based tire. im changing spacers again....when i tried 15/25 it was to much and the 10/20 i have now isnt enough so im gonna do 12/22 now

thanks, yeah that one of the reasons i did alot of the things i did. kind of wanted to do a heavy build that looked semi OEM and performed well. if you notice most of my upgrades are suspension or interior wise where i spend most of my time

if i hadnt bought my GS430 i would have bought a G35, i wish they had offered a manual in the GS but even that can be addressed.....you can do anything you want to just about any car you

thanks, yeah i know even when your happy eventually you want something else or something no longer appeases you. hell trunk has undergone 3 changes already. i have some more suspension parts coming in shortly as soon my whole suspension will be all aftermarket. i know, i hated that i didnt get them back in time to mount them but oh well you know?

Interior shots?

PFFTTT not for me and i need your rims....seriously. yeah i should have polished the headlights but i really was in a hurry. the deadline for the shoot was alot sooner than i was expecting so i had to leave work, go home and wash the car then drive downtown to scout and take pics and i just forgot to shine them.....plus shiny isnt my thing

take your time and do it right then....i spend the extra $ for real and quality parts. if i cant afford the real or the quality part, i save for a little extra and then buy it. no replica's for me....i had 2 total replica parts in/on the whole car.....one is already sold and the other i just realized was a replica and im in the process of replacing it

nothing really wrong with the G35 actually....as i have said many times if i didnt buy my gs430 i would have bought the g35 and sometimes i wonder if i made the right choice. the LS swap and the manual conversion is alot of $ i could have spend on a Jim Wolf kit for the G35

bought the car in 2007, after trolling a few forums for awhile, didnt think i could keep up with this board so i joined lexusownersclub and spent some time over there then started getting on this one and finally just stopped getting on that site (im sure some people wish i had just stayed there but i think i supply enough correct info and DIY's to offset my mouth sometimes

black on black? you mean the rims on the body? soon it will be B.O.B.O.B. black interior,black exterior,black rims. im not a fan of complete "murder" though so i will leave the trim/headlights/taillights alone

i dont think im gonna do anything under the hood in that color but its possible (maybe the RMM strut bar when i get it) but i thought about blacking out my SRT intake piping like i did my PPE headers and the intake box (which i think im fixing to redo for a deisign im interested in more)

i MAY or may not do the LS(X) swap but there have been 2 well documented LS builds on here(and a 3rd being done but that guy falls off from time to time)

not much,WAY lighten than the OEM yes it does....if i didnt have that system i would do a actual CF trunk not a wrapped one a replacement one but i think the stereo would eventually destroy that plus it would make it easier for people to get into my trunk

BTW i think the meet in your sig is over

thanks bing, BBK should be done and installed in the next week or two. fixing up a spare set of rears Porn_adkt gave me since my OEM ones are painted red (now really dull) and wire brushing them,primering them,and painting them like a gloss black (although i may change them to a semi gloss or a matte black)

eventually im gonna try (for aesthetic reasons) to make a Stoptech reak bbk since they done offer one for our cars nor would they make me a custom one.i am trying to secure some Stoptech ST-20 2 piston calipers ATM to make this happen through a contact of porn_adtk i can get a bracket and then i will send them out to be rebuilt and powdercoated to match my fronts

thanks man, although it will be a true sleeper IF i do the LS swap with a supercharger like i plan on doing OR even a turbo kit (single or twin) but i think the SC kit would be more feasible especially since i have access to one

thanks, i bought them in the classififeds for $160 http://www.clublexus.com/forums/2gen...ht-covers.html but it was 1SWTGS who got me interested in them from my christmas present thread http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-s...or-our-gs.html
