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

karasha 04-16-13 07:02 PM

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. :)

bob4256 04-16-13 07:11 PM

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

SC2JZ300 04-16-13 07:26 PM

This is so Doritos Bold

dorkacho 04-16-13 07:32 PM

officially my fav build on this forum. love every single thing you did to your car.

:thumbup: for being bold and always taking your car to the next level !

tastefully done indeed :thumbup:

projectdna 04-16-13 07:40 PM

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.

zmcgovern4 04-16-13 07:44 PM

Looks great. Very original style. Nothing else like. Great work.

dfrizzle 04-16-13 07:54 PM

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. :p

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. :thumbup:
