fresh wash when i first got it ....the interior was half done converting to black when i got it...
first mod i did was get the 97+ conversion... got the front bumper, side skirts, back bumper all on craigslist already black from lexus, so glad i got factory kit ... heres a pic of the car finally after a day or two finished everything installed tires on the wheels i got them on the car... wheels are sevas s55 20x10 20x9... i know 20s are big for the car but i wanted the big wheel look...

Whats up with all these guys form FL flooding the SC section of this forum with all these modifications?

Car looks great, thanks for posting the pictures along the way. On here, you didnt do it, unless you have the pictures to prove it. Hahaha.. Like the wheels better black and the chrome lip. Overall nice job, from start to finish. I am sure this only the beginning...
