Just a small update...

Planning to go air this month. Trying to piece my kit together today and hopefully start the install by next week and be done by the end of next weekend.

still undecided if i want to go with accuair management or just run basic valves with dakota digital gauges and switch box. i'm still not convinced that i want to keep my GS so everytime i put more money into it, makes me think about keeping it lol

thanks. i've been on the rock about getting another car. I might keep this one for a few more months but i have a newer project in mind for next year. I'll still be in the Lexus community tho Im still considering just putting the stock wheels and piping on and not having to worry about anything lol. but not sure if i can afford to keep it yet since im looking at a newer lexus.

Is that a custom copper color? Love the usual gold on black but this also has a nice contrast! Nicely done sir!

Great Progress on the GS. Yours looks very similar to mine. I also have a new set of VSXX but mine are 18x11 front and 18x13 rear on a silver face. I live near San Jose. Maybe I'll see you out on the road.
