looks good. I just don't feel the gold emblems. Maybe matte black would look good. But it's your car and your choice. Keep it up.
Any future plans?

Totally jealous, I've been looking for gold emblems! Love the whip man. I'm gonna go with the same type of style of wheels (XXR 530's)

Our cars will eventually be twins. I'm in the process of swapping in a full Soarer 1JZGTE R154 Swap. Taking forever though

Modifying is cars is more than just throwing on a bunch of random parts, it's a form of art, a vehicular sculpture

Nice lookin ride! I love having a 1jz but I need bigger brakes. I just ordered up my set to put on. I like the white and bronze. Looks great!

Another new member with a great start. Car looks good, just the way it sits. Nothing crazy or extreme, just simple yet elegant...
