Default HeyArms's Bold Moves! Bagged, Boosted & lots more

I feel long over due for a thread of my progression, I'm nearing the end but this year still has more surprises.

Quick Links to others major threads of mine:
Supercharger build:
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/buil...er-thread.html
KSport Pro Plus Air Review:
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-s...on-review.html

Here goes the long journey...
February 2009: Leased the car new, little did I know how far I'd go.

June 2009: my first horrible mod, black tail lights... we all start somewhere


Summer 2010: MRR GT1 19" wheels... NO DROP!


August 2011: JoeZ race exhaust (with PPE high flow cats)


Black headlight housings, Tein S Tech springs and yellow fog overlays happened sometime too...

October 2011: PURSUIT III in Cali

Made the road trip with Karasha from Houston to Cali, and this car meet as well as her car got me deep into modding.




Picked up my Wald trunk while in Cali too


November 2011: Full Wald installed


February 2012: blew a shock auto crossing, had to buy coils. Megan EZ to the rescue



March 2012: PPE headers to pair with the full exhaust


Work GS4 arrived from Japan. Anodized bronze barrels, matte black faces




Summer 2012: 2012 headlights


August 2012: KSport pro plus air suspension


Megan camber arms for moar low


September 2012: WEKFEST AUSTIN

January 2013: front end conversion process with Arkym carbon fiber front lip

OEM F bumper just didn't make sense, so option racing direct replacement was used.

Body shops awesome work to hack and splice together the Arkym lip


Early 2013: front end done and home for final pieces




March 2013: Rotora 6/4 full bbk with stop tech drilled & dimpled rotors
Powdered white pearl



April 2013: Seibon ts-II hood





I'm sure I forgot a lot, and there is a ton left to come this year. Stay tuned.

I should have never posted pictures of my cars and just let them always be in the background of your car's pictures. Hahaha the IS300 and IS350 is almost always somewhere in your pictures.

The carbon fiber hood is overkill I think but everything else looks great! Cant wait to see what else you have in store

holy good mother of God, your 2is has come such a long way. i still remember meeting you and karasha the first time the weekend of The Pursuit!

this is one of the very few examples of doing things the RIGHT way: no half-assing, no cutting corners, no mickey-mousing.

Holy ****, I didn't realize it from how you car is now. I remember how it looked when you came to SD to pick up the wald trunk off my friend! I was the one who helped installed it with the Black 2is Looking good sir!

Thanks, the hood will definitely be hit or miss with everyone. It's meant to be outlandish and bold though, pretty sure it accomplishes that though.

Jasonnnn. Thanks so much man, we really are trying to keep the 2IS game from being stagnant. It's a ways off, but look for me and Katie to be hauling our cars out to Cali for Wekfest or a big meet 2014.

If anyone asks me how an aggressive IS250 looks... THIS would be the perfect picture
Your car is amazing man. Lot's of hard earn cash and sweat put into this and I'm digging it!
Definitely one of a kind
Keep up the great work man.
